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.
In 1966, Columbia University became home to the Student Homophile League, the country’s first gay student organization. Many of the group’s activities took place at Earl Hall. For more information, visit http://www.nyclgbtsites.org/site/columbia-university/.
