The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (currently the National LGBTQ Task Force) is an American non-profit organization focused
on building, supporting and educating a grassroots community around LGBTQ rights and causes. This collection contains photocopies
of administrative documents and research materials from the West Hollywood office of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force
during the 1980s.
The National Gay Task Force was founded in 1973 by Dr. Howard Brown, Dr. Bruce Voeller, Reverend Robert Carter and Dr. Frank
Kameny. It then transformed into the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and currently operates as the National LGBTQ Task
Force. Focused on creating and supporting grassroots power of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities, the
National Gay and Lesbian Task Force has offices in multiple cities and engages with a wide range of activities and opportunities
for outreach. It runs Creating Change, the National Conference for LGBT Equality, and operates a Policy Institute, a think
tank that conducts social science research, policy analysis, strategy development, public education and advocacy.
