The Gay Alliance of Brooklyn was founded in 1971 by members of the Gay Activists Alliance in order to establish in their own borough an organization of gays and lesbians dedicated to the attainment of civil rights for gays. It sponsored films, forums, and dances and published (irregularly) a monthly newsletter. At its peak it claimed a membership of over 300. The organization appears to have been dissolved in early 1973. Included are minutes of general meetings and of the governing board, constitution and by-laws, and records of various committees including community relations, dance, membership, and newsletter committees.
