DENTON (UNT), Texas – Materials that trace 60 years of the history of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender social movements in the North Texas region will be housed at the University of North Texas Libraries under an agreement with Resource Center Dallas to acquire the center’s archives.
The UNT Libraries will receive approximately 400 boxes of newspapers, periodicals, press clippings, audio files, videotapes of gay pride parades and other events, music CDs, and movies focusing on LGBT and HIV/AIDS topics from the center’s Phil Johnson Historic Archives and Research Library. The libraries will also receive T-shirts, buttons and other promotion items from AIDS walks and other fundraising events, and uniforms and other materials from gay sports teams from the archives. The collection will be known as the Resource Center Dallas LGBT Collection of the UNT Libraries.
