This Thursday through Sunday, hundreds of women of color and their friends will be flocking to Provincetown, MA for a beautiful weekend of fun in the sun. Provincetown, one of the most LGBTQ-friendly destinations on the planet, hosts this event annually for gay women of color and the people who love them.
The long weekend kicks off on Thursday, with registration beginning at 3pm. Later in the day there will be a meet up, followed by a welcome dinner and party. The dinner is $28 and the party is $10. Both provide ample opportunities to peruse the crowd and find your potential new lady love.
Friday promises to deliver even more fun, with workshops, games, wine and tequila tastings (liquid courage is never a bad thing) and some stellar entertainment. Pamela Means will be performing, followed by Karen William's hilarious comedy show ($20/$35). After that will be a burlesque show at the famous Crown & Anchor ($20/$35) that is sure to get you in the mood for the night's main event; The Party, taking place from 9:30pm to 1am at the Pied Bar on Commercial Street ($10). As if all of that weren't enough, Twisted Sister is hosting a post-party "pizza meetcha" at 1am. After hours of dancing the night away, this is the perfect opportunity to refuel and spend some quality time with new friends.
Saturday will provide more of the same awesomeness, with more workshops and games, followed by an exciting P-Town scavenger hunt, a banging pool party with DJ Afrika spinning at the Crown & Anchor Pool ($15), a Carnival Tea Dance at Pied Bar ($10) that will serve as the Official Party of Black and Latino Pride in Boston, and some excellent performances, including comedy with Mimi Gonzalez and Sam Jay ($20/$35). Finishing up the night will be A Black and White Affair at the Paramount at the Crown & Anchor ($20). Dress to impress as is this is a "grown and sexy" party that will be packed with gorgeous women. Twisted Sister will be serving more post-party pizza, because there is nothing you will want more after another night of tearing it up P-Town style.
Things sadly come to an end on Sunday, but not before you get a chance to have a little more fun (and eat some amazing food) at the Sister Soul Brunch at Lorraine's Restaurant ($24.95), capped off with an open hang at The Pied, where you get to say your "see you laters" to old friends and new. Women of Color Weekend is always a beautiful celebration of our community's women of color and the people who love them, and this year promises to be better than ever. So head on down to Provincetown and get ready for a weekend to remember!
