Provincetown Bear Week 2010

Ggrrrrr.....it's fast approaching! Provincetown Bear Week 2010 will be held July 10-18. This will be our second year to attend. You'll recall my Bear Week 2009 and the photos. We were invited by friends to join them last summer and, honestly, wondered how we would fit in with this sort of bearish group......what would it be like, what would we spend our time doing, would we like being jammed into a small town with thousands of bears? But, unequivocally, the answers were positive and clear. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. We fit in perfectly (LoverBoy more than me....I'm much more of an otter than a bear). No, wait, now that I'm looking at the definition of an otter, I'm not really that either....unless you count my hairy forearms and legs..... oh, hell, I don't know what I am, quite frankly. If you aren't familiar with the bear subculture of the gay community, check it out here. We spent the week in a large house rented with ten great guys. We rose when we wanted to each morning, hung around in our jammies, boxers, or less for coffee and spent our days eating, touring, enjoying any of the many Bear Week events, met a ton of new friends, and went to a few parties around town. Probably one of the week's most fun times happens each afternoon at 4pm at the Boat Slip.....the Tea Dance! What a great couple of hours to relax, chat, drink, and enjoy looking out at the Provincetown Harbor with a thousands other handsome men.

So, a bear or not, think about it. I swear, it's a great week of good times and plenty of nice folks.

I remember waaay back when I was single and in my twenties, I was with a guy who said I was such a hot bear, and I laughed out loud because I'd never heard that before. He explained what a bear was, and then I understood.

Bears rule!
