Care Package for June 30, 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: “I suppose that a lifetime spent hiding one’s erotic truth could have a cumulative renunciatory effect. Sexual shame is in itself a kind of death.” – Alison Bechdel

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 New York Public Library renamed its 135th Street Branch the Countee Cullen Branch in 1951 in honor of gay poet Countee Cullen, a pivotal figure in the Harlem Renaissance. The library was the first named for an African-American in the New York Public Library system.
