The mission of The Dallas Way is to gather, store, organize, and present the complete GLBT history of Dallas, Texas.
The members of the Board of Directors of The Dallas Way represent 560 years of community service to the GLBT community in Dallas. If one were to add the community volunteers who have already joined to serve the mission of The Dallas Way, that number increases to 970 years. That’s nearly a millennium of community service.
We are a collection of Happy Historians who have joined together to ensure the GLBT community’s rightful place in the overall history of Dallas, Texas. And yet, with all of our knowledge and expertise and experience, we currently do not fully represent the extent, variety, or complexity of our entire GLBT community.
Our mission is incomplete without a representative story from each of the many areas of our GLBT community. Therefore, when we talk about us, we are conscious of our need to include ever more representatives; even those we have not yet met. We need your stories to complete our mission.
Our GLBT history is important because it validates our considerable efforts, and it celebrates our bountiful successes. Our GLBT history proves our rightful place in Dallas history, overall, and our substantial contributions to Dallas as a world-class city.
