Tweet of the day: @LargeTony

Tweet of the Day

Although the day isn’t over, I couldn’t resist sharing @largetony‘s tweet.  Earlier today he tweeted, “So the unemployment rate in US has dropped to 5.3%. There is national healthcare. And marriage equality. I blame Obama.

I blame him too Tony. I remember all too well what our country was like after 8 years of “leadership” from a Republican President before Obama won in 2008.

GLAD’s summer party in Ptown is July 25th

The MacArthur FoundationGLAD’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.

Caption this photo

humorSince everyone in the US is now obsessing over the long holiday weekend, I thought I’d include an appropriately themed photo to caption.

I’ll get you started with a possible caption and hopefully you’ll feel inspired to share a few of your own in the comments section below.
