The University of North Texas Portal to Texas History has added two new LGBTQ collections — Q Texas and the Rainbow Garden Club of North Texas. For 10 years, the portal has archived Dallas Voice as searchable pdfs.

The Rainbow Garden Club collection includes the group’s 1993-1997 newsletters. Each newsletter contains information related to upcoming club meetings, trips, and club activities. Several newsletters feature advice or educational columns from members and newsletter contributors, comics, poetry, activities and obituaries. The Rainbow Garden Club of North Texas was founded in 1992 as the Gay and Lesbian Garden Club.

Q Texas began publishing when This Week in Texas (TWT) ceased publication. It was published by Dallas Voice from 2000-2004 and featured articles on art, music, performance, movies and culture, as well as the current social and political subject matter.
