Care Packages through the end of June are a celebration of LGBTQ Pride Month. I know it’s not much, but I want to put as much support as I could into the world, and this seemed like a good way to add a bit more. Happy Pride Month.

Travel/History: All the entries here through the end of June come from nyclgbsites.org, an excellent website that documents the historical and cultural locations in New York City that are associated with the LGBTQ community.
The “oldest collectively-run performance space for women and/or trans artists in the known universe.” That’s the way the WOW (Women’s One World) Cafe Theatre describes itself. Now located at 59-61 East 4th Street, the theater is a member of the Fourth Arts Block (FAB), a non-profit that provides affordable programming, trains aspiring artists, and promotes diversity.
