PROVINCETOWN — Tim McCarthy was a passionate and well-known activist and videographer who documented the LGBTQ experience across many different countries and cultures. He died unexpectedly last September at age 61.
Within weeks of McCarthy’s death his friends established the Tim Fund under the fiscal sponsorship of the nonprofit Provincetown Community Compact.
“The fund is a way to hold on to some part of someone we held very dear,” said Dr. Brian O’Malley, a member of the Tim Fund committee and a close friend of McCarthy’s. The fund, he said, will serve as Tim McCarthy’s living memorial.
