Gulf Coast Archive and Museum
The Gulf Coast Archive and Museum of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender History (GCAM) is an LGBT history organization located in Neartown, Houston, Texas (United States). While the museum is no longer open to the public, the archives continue to be available for viewing by appointment. The office and an ongoing exhibit of artwork are on display at the GLBT Cultural Center at 401 Branard inside the Montrose Counseling Center building. GCAM was created to collect, preserve and provide access to historical items from the LGBT community of the Gulf Coast area of Texas. The archive encourages education of and research by anyone interested in learning about any aspects of the LGBT community. The organization sponsors meetings for the dissemination of information and display of collected materials.

GCAM began meeting in July 1999 and officially incorporated in May 2000. The initial opening of the museum doors occurred Friday, June 16, 2000, in a small shared warehouse space on Capitol Street. By June 2001, the museum had moved into an apartment on West Main Street. In May 2005, GCAM officially closed its museum to focus on preserving the history of the community.

June through September 2004, GCAM was proud to be able to assist the Holocaust Museum Houston to present Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933”“1945.
