Provincetown Bear Week Canceled
Thanks to COVID here’s another cancellation in the LGBTQ community. It’s normally an event that people look forward to every year.
Provincetown Bears is saddened to announce the suspension of Bear Week Provincetown 2020. Members of our board have watched the rampant developments of the coronavirus pandemic and we believe that it is not advisable for us to host the crowded parties this summer that are the hallmark of Bear Week.
There’s more here.
What bothers me the most is we did not get a Pride month this year at all. No Pride events, no marches, parades, or rallies. Nothing. Many of us will not forget that.

Here’s more. Frankly, I think I might have liked the movie more if Lee Daniels had directed it. In fact, I know I would have liked it more.
