The Banner Project
An Exhibition of Houston LGBT History

The Banner Project (Houston, TX)
Sara Fernandez, Kirk Baxter, JD Doyle

The Banner Project was originally undertaken as a display for the Creating Change Conference
held in Houston in early 2014. It featured colorful banners that celebrated 27 LGBTQ+ events
and people, covering 11 decades of Houston history. Since the initial showing, the banners have
been used as a pop- up exhibit at various events and new banners have been added. There are
now 48 banners (covering 1930-2010), which allow viewers to quickly grasp an overview of
Houston LGBTQ history.
