Provincetown Business Guild (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, July 29, 2019
This week I talked with Bob Sanborn, Interim Executive Director of The Provincetown Business Guild (PBG) about what’s happening this summer in Provincetown, Massachusetts & beyond. Provincetown Business Guild was founded in 1978 with 20 members & has grown to over 300 members today. PBG is the first tourism organization in the country whose primary mission is to promote & support tourism for LGBTQ visitors. The Guild is committed to improving the Provincetown community by advocating for the acceptance of diversity & tolerance through projects, programs & education. PBG promotes & markets Provincetown as an LBGTQ year round destination by producing events such as PRIDE, Carnival, Holly Folly & First Light. One of the most popular events this summer is Carnival Week that takes place August 17th through the 24th. This year’s theme is “The Enchanted Forest” & for the 41st annual Carnival Parade on August 22nd the Grand Marshals will be Lea Delaria & Trixie Mattel with David Velasco Bermudez who is a Stonewall Riots Survivor as Honorary Grand Marshal. The parade begins at 3P along Commercial Street & you’re encouraged to come dressed in your most fabulous Carnival themed finery. Sanborn has also served as the Town’s Tourism Director & served on the Town’s Visitor Services Board for a number of years. In 2018 The Provincetown Business Guild & its separate 501(c)3 entity launched The Provincetown LGBTQ Welcome & Resource Center (“The Center”) with a new storefront for The Center at 368 Commercial Street. This is a great way to begin your Provincetown adventure so be sure to check it out.
