Many vacation destinations claim to be the happiest place on Earth, but in my experience, Provincetown’s Bear Week has an outstanding claim to the title. For eight glorious days and nights, the Cape Cod resort becomes bigger, furrier, and friendlier than usual when the burly, hairy gay dudes known as bears enjoy a week of summer fun. I especially recommend walking down Commercial Street as the various bear packs head to tea dance on wrestling singlet night.
If you’re still not quite sure what, exactly, a bear is, DaddyB is here to further your education. (Depending on your workplace’s tolerance for adult language, leather vests, and rotisserie chicken eating, this may well be NSFW.) Woof!
Want to hang out with Outward? If you’ll be in or near New York City on Monday, July 13, join June Thomas, J. Bryan Lowder, and Mark Joseph Stern—and special guests Ted Allen, of Queer Eye and Chopped fame, and marriage-equality campaigner extraordinaire Evan Wolfson—for a queer kiki at an Outward LIVE show, hosted by City Winery. Details and tickets can be found here.
