Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection contains the papers of the organization from 1993-1998, which is during the time that Al Daniels served as treasurer for the group and later, as co-chair. Steve Atkinson served as president of the organization during the years of Al Daniels's involvement with the group. In 1997-1998, the club reunited with their former organization under the Dallas Gay and Lesbian Alliance banner. The organization has been active under this name ever since.

Collection Historical Note

The Lesbian/Gay Political Coalition of Dallas was a political organization created out of the Dallas Gay Political Caucus during the 1980s. The Lesbian/Gay Political Coalition of Dallas and the Dallas Gay Alliance were the two groups which formed out of the Dallas Gay Political Caucus. During the early eighties, the Dallas Gay Alliance chose to focus more on social issues with the rise of the AIDS epidemic, while the Lesbian/Gay Political Coalition continued to operate with politicians and local leaders in order to get more members of the LGBT community and those supportive of equal rights elected into office. Throughout each year, the group participated in screenings of political candidates, held fundraising events, met frequently to discuss current issues and revised organizational bylaws. The organization was active most prominently during election years, where they helped increase visibility for candidates in both local and national elections.
