Once again, I am proud to present the newest edition of our annual Lesbian, Gay,
Bisexual and Transgender Directory of Services and Resources. I know this 2009
update will continue to serve you well as an invaluable guide to all that the New York
metropolitan area has to offer the LGBT community, family and friends.
This year’s Directory features a revised, more user-friendly layout, along with
updates of several hundred carefully organized, comprehensive listings, most 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.
I extend my gratitude to the dedicated community leaders, activists and organizers
who worked with my staff to produce this update of the Directory. Whether you
consult it in book form or online at http://www.comptroller.nyc.gov/bureaus/
cac/LGBT_guide_09.pdf, I am sure you’ll return many times to consult this popular
and useful resource.
If you have questions or comments, please contact Alan Fleishman in my Office of
Research and Special Projects at (212) 669-2697, or send us an email at
email@example.com. I look forward to working with you as we continue
to make New York City an even better place to live, work and visit.
Very truly yours,
William C. Thompson, Jr.
