The Diana Foundation is excited to announce the publishing of its 65-year history as presented in a 156-page coffee table styled book. Full of pictures and stories from the very first gathering of Diana through the completion of our 65th anniversary, readers will be transported through time. For over six decades, Diana members - members of the Houston gay community - made significant contributions and helped shape one of the most vibrant and philanthropic cities in the country. 

What may have started as a watch party for the Academy Awards in 1953 has evolved into a robust, fun, and giving organization. The Diana Foundation is recognized as the oldest continuously active gay organization in the United States. Our book celebrates the contributions of our members, highlights our organization's humble beginnings and struggles, and showcases our bond with the Houston community. After 65-years, our future is bright and the spirit of Diana will forever be a part of our shared history. 

Los Angeles has the Oscars. New York City has the Tonys. Houston will forever have the Dianas.
