Scope and Contents

The Stonewall Democrats of Dallas is an LGBT Democratic political organization that arose from large donations to Republican candidates from the Log Cabin Republicans. The Stonewall Democrats of Dallas was created by Christy Kinsler, Gary Fitzsimmons, Michael Milliken, Al Daniels, Billy Fry, and Sunny Erwin in 1996. Since the club’s inception, its members have worked hard to organize and fund campaigns for LGBT-friendly Democrats in Dallas County and nationally. They conduct fund raisers, are active in lobbying, and have become the third largest chapter of the Stonewall Democrats in the nation.

This collections contains the organization’s documents from the years 1996-2008. During this time, Al Daniels served as an integral member of the club along with Michael Milliken, where they both served on the cabinet for four years as Treasurer and President, respectively.
