    LGBT ARTS & BOHEMIA OF PTOWN

    October 5, 2022

    The Generations Project is back with our annual intergenerational LGBTQ+ storytelling show. We bring together all generations of LGBT people to share stories as a way to foster community. This year’s theme is Arts & Bohemia.

    Provincetown’s history as a bohemian and gay sanctuary “the island of misfit toys” during times in our history when perversions and differences were dangerous to express openly is well known. Our storytellers, long-time frequenters and residents of Ptown will tell stories about their lives that touch on these themes. 

    These stories will be included in our LGBT history anthology that is part of our permanent exhibit at the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum entitled “An Anecdotal Anthology of LGBTProvincetown” where we chronicle our history of the last century through first-hand account and archival material.”
