Scanning the 1989 and 1994 guides were problematic. They were
oversize, 11' x 15" and 10" x 12", respectively, and
the 1989 one
was newspaper format, so the pages did not fit on my scanner bed,
and had to be done horizontally, and twice to grab the whole page,
with overlap. With some viewers you may need to rotate the pages.
In 2001, through 2008 Houston Pride participated in a
National publication, called "Pride," and as it was distributed
across the country a section in its center was devoted to
a city, obviously in our case, Houston. Around fifty pages of "local"
content was found there, and the rest of the 300+ pages were feature
articles of general interest. These were big and slick and extremely
well-done publications. For this use, only the relevant Houston
pages were scanned, omitting almost all ad pages.
greatly thank several organizations and people for help in this project.
