Care Package for June 20, 2019

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.

Henry Gerber, the gay rights activist who founded the Society for Human Rights, lived at Castle Williams and Fort Jay while serving in the U.S. Army on Governors Island in Manhattan from the late 1920s through 1945.
