Care Package for June 28, 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.

Quote: “You don’t have to live a lie. Living a lie will mess you up. It will send you into depression. It will warp your values.” – Gilbert Baker

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.

After years of campaigning, the Empire State Building lit its tower in lavender to honor LGBT Pride on June 22, 1990. The Empire State Building continues to light the tower for Pride, now with a rainbow pattern. For more information, visit www.nyclgbtsites.org/site/empire-state-building/.
