What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Outrageous Oral

Outrageous Oral is perhaps the history project at its most entertaining. The most memorable stories seem improvised and intimate yet with a pointed message - messages that are painful, comic or celebratory. Over 60 personal LGBTQ stories have been shared thus far.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

• Gather – The Dallas Way collects written and oral stories of individuals, organizations, and events about the LGBTQ+ community of Dallas.
• Organize – TDW maintains a partial, growing list of stories at http://www.thedallasway.org/stories.
• Store – Eventually, TDW will add all of the collected items, including stories, artifacts, and art, to The Dallas Way’s LGBTQ archival collection preserved at the University of North Texas Digital Library.
• Present – Through the organization’s popular “Outrageous Oral” series, TDW presents live speakers at public forums for individuals and organizations to share their stories about their unique LGBTQ+ history in Dallas.

Present diversified historical programs through Outrageous Oral events;
Archive collected records via the University of North Texas Digital Library;
and, Partner with like-minded cultural, education, historical, and other organizations to ensure a diverse, equitable, and inclusive LGBTQ+ history of Dallas.


All work by The Dallas Way, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, is completed by volunteer historians, community leaders, and other volunteers. TDW Board of Directors maintains 10 members of diverse backgrounds and experiences.

On June 7, 2023, The Dallas Way presented Volume 29 of its Outrageous Oral series at the Dallas Holocaust & Human Rights Museum, in conjunction with their special exhibition, Rise Up: Stonewall and the LGBTQ Rights Movement.

The Dallas Way continues to partner with the University of North Texas Digital Library to archives a wide variety of important LGBTQ+ historical documents. For example, this past month, TDW recently received a generous private grant to digitize and archive the entire Turtle Creek Chorale history, including programs, advertisements, and audio/video recordings.

Data
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
