Subject

Texas Gay / Lesbian Task Force
Bogle, Edra; Cyr, Tanner, James; Sears, Raymond

Description

Originally formed as the Texas Gay Task Force, the TGLTF was the first statewide gay/lesbian organization in Texas. Organized in 1973 for the purpose of planning annual conferences (until 1990), the TGLTF served as the parent organization for the Lesbian/Gay Democrats of Texas and the Lesbian/Gay Rights Advocates.
Letter from Edra Bogle and James Tanner (co-chair Gay and Lesbian Association of Denton) to Dr. Raymond Sears (ACLU-Denton Chapter) to ask if his group would like to co-sponsor a GLAD/TGTF event at Dr. Bogle's home. Their hope is that this party will attract the "liberal Denton community" and the "closeted gay community." They believe that having ACLU support will give legitimacy to GLAD's cause.
