Johnson Archives offers exhibit on Team Dallas uniforms to mark sports events
The Phil Johnson Historic Archives and Research Library has assembled an exhibit titled “Team Dallas Well Dressed,” in conjunction with the opening Saturday of the Gay Games VII Sports and Cultural Festival and the 2006 World Outgames.
The exhibit, on view through Aug. 15 at the John Thomas Gay and Lesbian Community Center, includes original team uniforms, medals, pins and memorabilia from previous Gay Games. Narrative for the exhibit was written by Johnson himself, a perennial Gay Games competitor and, at 81, among the oldest.
The exhibit may be viewed during regular operating hours at the community center, 2701 Reagan St. The lending library hours are subject to change. Call 214-528-0144 for information.
