Tucson Gay Museum History
Tucson Gay Museum's efforts began June 10, 1967
as a collection project of a few 'liberated' local
neighborhood school age boys
secretly meeting together talking in very low
voices in one of their parents
with an idea they all knew very well had to be kept
a secret for both
their own survival and for the
survival of what would become original
one of a kind historical collections.
Attempts over the years since
were made to destroy or steal those now
tens of thousands
of LGBTQIA+ historical archives
documenting many decades of
Survive Intact, Preserved.
The Effort Continues!
