Description
Bylaws, correspondence, fliers, and membership lists, 1983-1984, of the Desert Empire Business and Professional Association (DE BAPA). The bulk of the records concern the split in the organization in mid-1984. While DE BAPA retained the name, some members left to form the Palm Springs Business and Professional Association. Both organizations served lesbian women, gay men, bisexuals, and transgender professionals and business owners.
Background
The principal purpose of the Desert Empire Business and Professional Association was "to support, assist, inform, and educate business and professional individuals supportive of its concerns and community they serve." The principle communities were lesbian women, gay men, bisexuals, and transgender professionals and business owners.
