The PBG would like to share our condolences for the friends, family and community of John Burrows, the founder and organizer of Provincetown Bears & Provincetown Bear Week, who unexpectedly passed away yesterday.

Provincetown Bear Week was started by John and the men of Provincetown Bears nearly 25 years ago. Within a very short period of time it has grown into one of the largest weeks in the town’s summer event schedule, and the largest gathering of bears in the world. The Provincetown community and the bear community owe John a great debt of gratitude for building a space and culture that has brought so many visitors joy and acceptance, and helped to define bear culture 🖤🧡🤎

Provincetown plans to ‘gay it forward’ and help maintain the culture John built along with the many other friends and creators surrounding Bear Week.

Here’s a photo shared by John’s loved ones early-on in Bear Weeks growth in 2001.

Please reach out, show some love and say thank you to any/all trans individuals in your community (today and any day, but especially nowadays…) Thank you to Mx Justin Vivian Bond @mxviv for all your advocacy and for carrying a torch for many communities, and in Provincetown as our first trans grand marshal 🎉

We love our trans visitors and the trans members of our local community. You are safe and welcome here always. Thank you for being you.

“Today, we show millions of transgender and nonbinary Americans that we see them, they belong, and they should be treated with dignity and respect. Their courage has given countless others strength, but no one should have to be brave just to be themselves. Every American deserves that freedom.”
