What to do this week: August 12 – 18

gay bostonBelow I’ve listed approximately 50 events, programs and parties taking place this week. Peruse the list but here are a few I’d like to give a shout out to. 

If you want to watch a movie outside on Tuesday The Coolidge will show Back to the Future II on Thursday at the MFA you can watch 2001: A Space Odyssey, and on Friday at the DCR Hatch Shell Captain Marvel will play – for a full list of all the free movies playing this week check out Free Outdoor Summer Movies.

If you’re looking to laugh check out Queer Qomedy Hour on Thursday at the Improv or S&M Stand up Comedy on Friday at Jacques. But for many, the highlight of the week will actually be when Provincetown Carnival Week: Enchanted Forest starts on Saturday.
