Provincetown Pride The First One Ever.
Surprisingly, Provincetown gay pride is a relatively new event now in its third year. It has already become one of the key dates in an already packed Summer calendar marking the start of the high season.
PTown’s Express Yourself Day
Express Yourself Day is a predetermined day during each theme week that encourages visitors to convey their individuality and dress up in colorful, creative ways. From wigs to heels, speedos to singlets and everything in between, Provincetown’s “be yourself” ethos is the driving force behind these special days, organizers said. And the Provincetown Business Guild is selling limited edition “Express yourself” t-shirts that visitors can purchase for some self-expression inspiration. On Saturday during pride its the turn of Express Your Queer Self Day

History of Gay Provincetown
Since Provincetown’s founding, it has been a welcoming haven for people who might be considered “outsiders” in other parts of the world. First, it was home to immigrant Portuguese fishermen, then a travel destination for artists, actors, playwrights, and poets from a variety of backgrounds.
In the early 1900s many of these creatives found Provincetown to be a place where there was freedom to express sexual preferences and a sense of acceptance which the rest of the world had yet to learn.
Provincetown has been characterized as a safe place to be gay for over a century. Over the years, it has continued its tradition as a place of tolerance, harmony, and love for the LGBT community.
