Provincetown: Independence Week

Provincetown is located at the very tip of Cape Cod in Massachusetts. This out of the way place where land greets the North Atlantic has long been a home for the gay community. Although in recent years, more heterosexual couples and families have started visiting, the town remains proudly gay in the summer months especially when the queer community comes to vacation en masse.

Starting this past weekend Provincetown opened its arms wide to welcome 40,000+ men and women. Although the 4th of July holiday is now over, thousands remain thru Saturday celebrating and enjoying the beaches, shopping, restaurants, shows (yes there's quite a few) and nightlife. In all my travels, I've never found its equivalent and so if you've never had the opportunity, I'd encourage you to consider a visit. Following Independence Week, Saturday July, 9th, more will come for Bear Week. This combined with Carnival Week (August 13-20) are the three busiest for Provincetown. Below I've included a quick (and SFW) video of some of the fun and people I met this past weekend in Provincetown. More pictures will follow.
