GVSHP Annual Meeting and Village Awards Next Tuesday, June 6

2017 Village Awardees

Time is running out to reserve a seat!  Next Tuesday, June 6th is our Annual Meeting and Village Awards ceremony – a terrific opportunity to hear about GVSHP’s work over the past year and to celebrate some of the great small businesses, institutions, individuals, and places that make Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo the neighborhoods we love.

The ceremony is followed by a reception, and is open to all – but you must RSVP here to reserve seating, which is limited. We strongly encourage you to spread the word and invite friends, family and neighbors to join us for this heartwarming and fun event, which takes place at the landmarked auditorium of our co-hosts The New School at 66 West 12th Street.

June is LGBT Pride & History Month - Learn and Advocate

June 1 kicks off Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride and History Month.  Want to learn more about the incredibly rich diversity of sites in our neighborhoods connected to LGBT history?  Just explore GVSHP’s Civil Rights and Social Justice Map here, which has over thirty sites, famous and obscure, connected to the struggle for civil rights for LGBT people, and scores of others connected to African-American, Women’s, Latino, and immigrant civil rights and social justice history.  Arguably no place on earth has more sites significant to LGBT civil rights than the Village, East Village, and environs.

In spite of this, there’s only one site in all of New York City which has been landmarked based upon LGBT history – the Stonewall Inn.  GVSHP got this site landmarked in 2015, but the City has still resisted three other critically important sites we have proposed for landmark designation which currently go unrecognized.

 

HOW TO HELP:



and the Chair of the Landmarks Preservation Commission and tell them it’s time to recognize and protect other LGBT landmarks in our neighborhood.
