GLAD’S 34th Annual Summer Party
The Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders is a local non profit that has been helping the LGBT community here and around the country since it was first formed in 1978. In recent years GLAD’s Civil Rights Project Director, Mary Bonauto, has received much attention as a Marriage Equality advocate with significant rulings in cases like Goodridge v. Department of Public Health which made Massachusetts the first state in which same-sex couples could marry in 2004 and more recently arguing before the U.S. Supreme Court in the Obergefell v. Hodges case on April 28, 2015. A that case will determine if state bans against same-sex marriage are constitutional and considered one of the most important civil rights cases to come before the U.S. Supreme Court in modern history.
Show your support for the work GLAD is doing on behalf of marriage equality and other important civil liberties by joining them at their 34th Annual Summer Party.

While tens of thousands have descended upon Provincetown for Independence Week parties and celebrations, a weekly tradition worth checking out (if only to take a break from all the revelries) is the Ptown Friday Gallery Walk.
While many think of the East End when they think of Provincetown’s art galleries, don’t overlook West End galleries like the AMP Gallery at 148 Commercial St. where Keith Krisa’s exhibit opened and will run through Wednesday, July 8th.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Ptown offers a little bit of something for everyone. While visiting try something you may not normally do. You might be surprised by how much you enjoy perusing Provincetown’s art galleries.
No other town captures my imagination or makes me feel as at home as Provincetown. This video from CBS gives you a glimpse of some of what Ptown has to offer and its rich cultural heritage which all of us have benefited from.
The Provincetown International Film Festival starts next week on
Wednesday, June 17th and runs through Sunday, June 21st.
The full film schedule and tickets to showings can be viewed here.
This is one of those annoying geography-themed bits of humor that makes absolutely no sense if you’ve never been to Provincetown but makes me smirk every time I see it.
One of my favorite Provincetown performers, Varla Jean Merman, is back with a new show that starts later this month at the Art House in Ptown.
Big Black Hole!
