are you in on Provincetown Family Week?

Provincetown Family Week is just around the corner! It seems like
just yesterday we were parading the streets of Provincetown with
our strollers and handmade “I love my family” signs! Last year was
a spectacular success on every level: the workshops were powerful,
the gatherings and special events were all a hit and the week
instilled a tremendous sense of community for all of us. We
laughed, we cried, we sang and we danced. And now we’re ready for
the best year yet.

By now you know that Family Pride is partnering with R Family
Vacations this year. And you know that there is no registration
fee. Every family who travels to Provincetown for family week can
participate. R Family Vacations will be doing what they do best by
producing all the activities during the week (such as picnics,
puppet workshops, dance classes, etc.) and we’ll be doing what we
do best by bringing you a full array of guest speakers and
workshops to maximize your fight for family equality. Our friends
at COLAGE will be providing their programming again this year as
well. You’ll need to register for COLAGE events on their
