Provincetown: Cape Cod Gay Summer Getaway
Provincetown, Massachusetts or “P-Town” is a popular summer vacation and weekend spot for gays (and straights) from New York, Montreal and, of course, Boston. Provincetown sits on the very end of Cape Cod and its isolation helped an artist’s community form here in the 1960s. With that community, gay men and women felt that they had found their own very special place on Cape Cod.
Today, P-town is much more commercial and its streets crowd with tourists. But this town still feels extremely gay during the summer months when visitors descend to enjoy the accepting community, the sun, sand and numerous bars and clubs. Its easiest to get here by the 90 minute “fast ferry” from Boston, or, if you can afford it, via a short 25-minute Cape Air flight.

These cities stood out for their history of activism, protection laws, LGBTQ-friendly establishments, districts, and business practices, and their ability to throw a rocking good (and open) party.

The festival, which runs from June 14-18, 2017, is not on officially the LGBT film festival circuit, but with a distinct focus on queer programming and John Waters as its patron saint—and the warm, sunny, sandy, boozy, super gay, just-slightly-weird backdrop of Provincetown, Mass.—it’s a de facto queer fest.
