The collection also contains publications and news clippings regarding the GLBT community in the Brazos Valley and in Texas, as well as material related to the 1979 National March for Gay and Lesbian Rights in Washington DC. In addition to the Tom and Tom Collection, the Kevin Bailey Collection features files regarding the GSS organization, Gayline, the GSS Roommate Locator program, and campus attitudes towards homosexuality and the GLBT community at Texas A&M from the 1970’s to present.
