Historical note

The organization whose sponsorship led to the formation of this collection is Houston ARCH, Houston Area Rainbow Collective History, a seven-member consortium formed to preserve the LGBT past and to improve intellectual access to materials collected by the constituent member organizations and institutions.

The items in this collection are the result of a particular community research project, the work of Rice University students earning credit for the course SWGS 201, “Introduction to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies.” Students taking the course from 2007 through 2015 were required to select interviewees from a list of hundreds of Houstonians who have made contributions to the LGBT community and volunteered to be interviewed. Each group of students spent a month researching their chosen individuals. When background reports were completed, they conducted interviews with these subjects and subsequently prepared written transcripts of the interviews.


Scope and Contents

The Houston ARCH Collection, includes DVDs of oral history interviews, written and electronic transcriptions of the interviews, and research materials including newsclippings related to the interviews and the history of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in Houston, Texas.
