About the Dallas Gay Alliance

The Dallas Gay Alliance was a continuation of the Dallas Gay Political Caucus. Founded in the mid-1970s, the Dallas Gay Political Caucus was first established by Dick Peeples, Steve Wilkins, Louise Young, Don Baker, and others. During the early 1980s, the group changed its name to the Dallas Gay Alliance. One part of the group became the Lesbian/Gay Political Coalition of Dallas. During the 1980s, the Dallas Gay Alliance continued to work towards improving rights for the LGBT population through education and social work. It also pursued its primary focus, developing ways of combatting the AIDS problem.
