A Gay Old Time In Provincetown

Spent 5 nights in Provincetown, Massachusetts, the gay mecca of the east coast. And like the Pilgrims that landed in Provincetown (Yes, the Pilgrims landed in Provincetown before heading off to Plymouth. It was in the Provincetown Harbor that the Mayflower Compact was signed, establishing the first written laws of the New World), there is a freedom that still exists to this day in PTown, as it is lovingly known. It is not necessarily the freedom the Pilgrims envisioned, but PTown is a very gay friendly town. I would estimate 80-90% of the inhabitants and visitors are gay. But it is NO big deal! Nobody is judged there for who they are! And what a freedom that is! Gay, straight, or whatever, people just are! While there, PTown celebrated Carnival, sort of a gay Mardi Gras. And what a blast it was!
