Phil Johnson
Dallas' LGBT Historian

As I spend so much time digitizing copies of This Week in Texas, and as a
historian myself, I gravitated to the many articles that Phil Johnson wrote
for TWT. I quickly learned that he was the founder of the Dallas Gay Archives,
and was a voracious collector of our history. He wrote for TWT from the mid-80s
through 2000 (when that publication ended). While I certainly do not have scans
of all of his articles, I hope to add more, and I want to share what I have so far.

But I'll also direct you to several articles
about him.
