About: Threads of Remembrance

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the inaugural display of the AIDS Memorial Quilt in 1987, this exhibit explores the history of the AIDS Memorial Quilt and the Dallas-Fort Worth community's response to the AIDS epidemic.


This exhibit was created by UNT Special Collections Faculty and Staff.

The majority of materials in this exhibit come from the UNT Special Collections LGBT Archives. Exceptions are noted accordingly.

We would like to thank the kind people at the NAMES Project Foundation, and Turtle Creek Chorale for their generosity in providing materials, information, and time to help create this exhibit.
