What to do this week: October 21 – 27

Halloween, Boston, Provincetown, Providence, Ogunquit There is a lot happening during the week as well with 40+ LGBTQ themed events taking place this week so make plans with friends.

I would like to give a shout out to two events of note this weekend, including ManRay XIV – the Fourteen Year ManRay Reunion on Friday at Sonia. More than any other, I miss the Fetish/gay club ManRay/Campus which closed in the early 2000s. Additionally, I want to encourage anyone considering entering Mr. Boston Bear and Cub 2020 Competition which takes place next Saturday at The Alley. Come down and cheer on all the contestants.
