    Gay Austin, Vol. 2, No. 8, May 1978

More than 30 years of Houston LGBTQ history is preserved and presented in this digital collection from the Gulf Coast Archive and Museum of GLBT History (GCAM). The collection contains over 100 LGBT newspaper issues from central Texas, the Dallas/Fort Worth area, and other Texas regions, from the 1970s through the early 2000s.

The Gulf Coast Archive and Museum's mission is to collect, preserve, and provide access to historical items from the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community. Over the last 20 years, GCAM has collected a broad variety of published materials relating to LGBTQ issues, both at the local and national level. Titles in this collection include The Star (Austin/San Antonio), South Texas Community News, and Bar Talk San Antonio. Mid-1970s issues from Gay Austin and Community News (Fort Worth/Dallas) are some of the earliest publications found in the collection.

The original materials are owned by the Gulf Coast Archive and Museum of GLBT History. (
