Tucson Gay Museum's efforts began June 10, 1967
as a collection project of a few 'liberated' local
Tucson, Arizona neighborhood school age boys
secretly meeting together talking in very low
hushed voices in one of their parents garages
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.

ttempts over the years since 1967
were made to destroy or steal those now

priceless tens of thousands of LGBTQIA+ historical archives
documenting many decades of LGBTQIA+ history.
All Survive Intact, Preserved.

The Effort Continues!
