Diana Foundation
1953 - present

The Diana Foundation was founded in 1953 and became a 501(c)3 foundation in 1976,
for the purpose of enabling its members to make contributions to the needs of
the Houston community.

As this is still a very active organization, this page cannot do it justice, so it displays a
quite haphazard representation of clippings and information from the past.

I recommend you visit OutSmart Magazine and search on their name for many, many articles.

Quick History

In 2010 Brandon Wolf wrote an excellent and thorough feature
article for Out Smart, and it ran in their March and April issues.
You can Download a PDF file of just the articles.

And Brandon compiled a much more comprehensive summary
(about 140 wonderful pages) of their history, with LOTS of photos,
which you can view by Downloading this PDF

Clippings

above is the earliest clipping I have found,
in the very first issue of TWT. As early events
were invitation only, that may have reduced media coverage.

Where are the clippings after 2000?
TWT ended in August 2000 and there
were just not many local publications
after that point. It came back as a
bar rag in 2006, with much reduced
community coverage

2014

In 2014 The Banner Project honored the Diana Foundation in their first batch of banners,
and each one has an essay dedicated to it. It was brought to the Diana Awards
on March 22, 2014, with founder Sara Fernandez posing along with JD Doyle.
