Previous Exhibits
The Gulf Coast Archive and Museum of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender History, Inc. is a 501-c-3 organization that was formed in Houston, Texas, by a group of concerned activists so that our collective histories could be saved - as well as be available for educational uses - through the utilization of a museum or similar venue. Although we have had to close the museum space, our archives are still available by appointment. Appointments can be made for access to the archives through Judy by calling 832-722-5785. Additionally, we do have a few satellite exhibits throughout the city and arrangements can be made for temporary ones for special functions.

GCAM now proudly displays many pieces of art and artifacts on the more than 4,000 feet of wall space at the GLBT Cultural Center, 401 Branard St. inside the Montrose Counseling Center building. Please contact Judy at curator@gcam.org or 832-722-5785 for an appointment to view this exhibit.

Our meetings are held the first Monday of every month at the Montrose Counseling Center, 401 Brandard, 1st floor in room 117 at 7:00 p.m. Visitors are welcome.

Eartha's Closet

Created primarily from the drag wear of Eartha Quake (Tony Wadford), GCAM created EARTHA'S CLOSET, literally a collection of drag wear available to loan to community members. To learn more about the wonderful "Eartha Quake-Tony Wadford-Queen Kong Perpetual Closet for Desperate Drag Queens" contact Craig or Judy for more information on how to borrow from the closet or to make donations to the closet.
