Town Hall Meeting 1


This momentum that started in 1977 led to one of Houston's most significant GLBT movements, Town Hall Meeting 1.

The picture shown here is from the June 25, 1978 meeting at the Astroarena.

What had started as a simple protest had now developed into a community voice. Houston's GLBT community was outraged! We had seen Stonewall and now it was time for our voice to be heard.

Another powerful moment is captured in the records from 1977. Lesbians campaigned for visibility through a dramatic release of colored balloons during the 1977 National Organization of Womenmeeting in the Astrodome.

Our voice was becoming louder!
