Queerstorical Timeline for Houston, TX

This timeline is an attempt to set Houston events in perspective to what else was going on in Texas and the United States at large.


This is a work in progress. I'm not so concerned with technicaly glitches as I am with the accuracy of the information.
Red text that is not underlined indicates subjects that need a link, or an article to be written.
Underlined red text leads to a page under construction.  
If you have more information that you would like to share (or find a link that does not work), please, take the time to e-mail: skip_teauxmelou@yahoo.com . Please, bear in mind that  I am not going to add information based on someone's say so. I will use the information that I am given as a lead and will look for articles and/or documents to verify the facts.
