Get outta the 🧊 and into the 🔥 with Snowbound Leather Weekend XV in Provincetown next Friday Feb 24-26. Provincetown’s fifteenth annual winter leather/fetish weekend hosted by Mates @matesleatherwkd gets bigger every year featuring annual events like the opening beer blast at Watership Inn, parties at @onlyatthecrown and A-House, brunch at @baysidebetsys , after-party at @ptownbrewingco and all the 🖤🖤🖤 you can take.

Those with a bit of an exhibitionist streak and a desire to fundraise for the incredible work the ASGCC @aidssupportgroupofcapecod does can also vie for the title of MR. SNOWBOUND 2023 (more info on that at our link.tree!) Mates has raised many thousands over the years 👏🏼

Earlier this week we lost a champion of Provincetown and our LGBTQ+ community with the passing of Roger Chauvette. Active for many years as a writer/editor for Provincetown Magazine @provincetownmagazine and the the coordinator of the PBG's Carnival Parade, Roger also served on many town committees, including the rebuilding of MacMillan Pier, the Bicycle Committee, The Provincetown Theater and the AIDS Support Group - his support for our community could be felt throughout Provincetown.

Daniel Llata @luckystraggler and Stephan Hengst @shengst had the pleasure of learning from Roger's experience in advance of the 2022 Carnival Parade. Over the 8 years that Roger organized the Parade, he prepared a guide to pass down to the future generation of PBG leaders, and they were so fortunate to have him share his sage advice with them directly.

Here's to all the great work done by Roger; may our memories of him - and the stories he told - continue to contribute to the diversity of our Provincetown community for generations to come.

A memorial celebration for Roger Chauvette will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Provincetown on Friday, February 10 at 2 PM. The service will be livestreamed at the following link (also shared on our link tree): https://www.youtube.com/live/6CFJ-MmTJOU?feature=share

For 40 years artist Jay Critchley @jaycritchley has performed his Re-Rooters day ceremony highlighting the perils of consumptive capitalism. At the ceremony’s apex Jay set aflame a constructed boat carrying four Christmas trees from the dump (peppered with symbolic items from the crowd of onlookers they wanted to dispose on in the twilight of a New Year.) With equal parts humor and sanctity more than a hundred folks shivered on in solidarity and wonder.

Only in Provincetown 🙏

Congratulations to Jay on the commitment of this 40-year-old piece of art and thank you to Mike Sullivan @mike3sullivan for the fantastic photo. For more information please check out JayCritchley.com

We are shocked by the damage caused by yesterday’s storm to our community, and our hearts go out to local businesses like Fanizzi’s @paulfanizzi East End Market @eastendmarketptown , and the community members who have dealt with major damage and/or lost electricity or have been displaced for the holidays…

However, we are heartened by the waves of community support: We saw that folks raised over 15k (in a matter of hours) to support service workers, heard stories of neighbors welcoming one another into their homes for the holidays, were glad to hear about the warming center at the VmCC today, and have seen other local businesses jump at the opportunity to help one another. This may be a great example of the spirit of the holidays, but it’s always the spirit of Provincetown.

So wherever folks are tomorrow we hope they are warmed by that thought, and know we will continue to support in the ways we can. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas Ptown 🌟
