CITY OF NEW YORK OFFICE OF THE COMPTROLLER JOHN C. LIU

MUNICIPAL BUILDING ONE CENTRE STREET NEW YORK, N.Y. 10007-2341

Dear Friend: As New York City's newly elected Comptroller, I am committed to remaining a powerful voice of support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. I pledge to continue my advocacy on marriage equality, corporate adoption of the Equality Principles, the Dignity for All Students Act, and strengthening transgender civil rights. Our "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Directory" is the only resource of its kind in New York and I am proud to present this year's edition. This year's "LGBT Directory" features updates of several hundred carefully organized, comprehensive listings, many with websites and e-mail addresses. You'll find a wide range of community organizations, health care facilities, counseling and support groups, recreational and cultural opportunities, houses of worship, arts and creative organizations, and many other vital resources and contacts throughout the five boroughs and beyond. As your Comptroller, I look forward to working with you to make our City an even fairer and more just place to live, work and visit. If you have questions or comments, please contact Alan Fleishman at [email protected] or (212) 669-2697. Whether you consult the "LGBT Directory" in book form or online at http://www.comptroller.nyc.gov/lgbt, I am sure you will return many times to consult this popular and useful resource. Sincerely,

John C. Liu
