Stonewall at the Center
The Provincetown Business Guild is continuing their dedication to including opportunities to educate Provincetown visitors about the history and issues that are integral to the advancement of LGBTQ civil rights with a new program at the Provincetown LGBTQ Welcome Center: “Stonewall at The Center.” On Sunday, August 18th, immediately following the Carnival flag raising at the Pilgrim Monument, Stonewall veteran David Velasco Bermudez and his husband, Bob Isadore, (both Cape Cod residents) will be at the Welcome Center. They will discuss their personal accounts of being at the Stonewall riots and what it was like to live in NYC in 1969 when homosexuality was illegal. The history of Provincetown as a safe haven for the LGBTQ community would look very different today without the actions of the brave individuals at Stonewall. “Stonewall at The Center” will continue through the fall and winter seasons with additional programming to be announced soon.
