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.
