Prior to 2005
Note: From 2003-2005, Texas Tech University Student Counseling Center hosted support group sessions and allies training on a regular basis. Additionally, the only officially registered GLBTQ student organization for Texas Tech, TTU Gay/Straight Alliance as it is known today, was founded in 1985 under the name "Student Services for Lsbians, Gays and Friends." They continued serving under this name until 1992 when they changed their name to "The Gay Lesbian, Bisexual Student Association," which subsequently changed to a more radical name: "Queers and Allies". In 1995, the organization changed its name for the final time to the Texas Tech University Gay-Straight Alliance.

For the past twenty-five years, the organization has served the students of Texas Tech University by creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for queer students and their allies and by advocating for equality on campus. Texas Tech's Gay Straight Alliance is dedicated in both preserving the history of the LGBTQ movement on campus and in building off foundations already built through social events, community outreach, educational lectures and forums, and grassroot organizing.
