    Biography

    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.

    Scope and Content

    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.
