Provincetown Women's Week 2014

By Charlotte Robinson, October 12, 2014
The 30th anniversary of Women's Week in Provincetown, MA is set for October 13th through October 19th. In 1984 several entrepreneurial & fabulous lesbian innkeepers came together to talk about the summer vacation season & ways to bring gay women back during the fall. This small discussion blossomed into the idea of a clambake on the beach for one weekend in October that would be called Women's Weekend. The event was a resounding success & today is one of the longest running lesbian events in history. Over the past 30 years, Women's Week has grown far beyond anyone's expectation. Comics, drag performers, jazz, blues & contemporary musicians have all performed in years past & continue to come back to entertain those celebrating during this special week. Some of these include iconic & award-winning LGBT entertainers include Kate Clinton, Poppy Champlin, Kristen Becker & Suzanne Westenhoefer. Musicians Lisa Ferraro and Erika Luckett, Cris Williamson, Tret Fure, Janis Ian & authors Marianne K. Martin, Lynn Ames & Georgia Beers to name a few. Another reason this year's anniversary is special is that award-winning filmmaker Andrea Meyerson will be filming her Women's Week documentary entitled "Clambake: 30 Years of Women's Week in Provincetown." Upon completion, the documentary will debut at the Provincetown International Film Festival in June 2015 & then another special viewing will take place at next year's Women's Week. Other Women's Week events scheduled include original plays, writing, photography & theater workshops, walking tours, craft fairs & meet-and-greet events for all to enjoy.
