How did a sleepy New England fishing village become a gay mecca? In this dynamic history, Karen Christel Krahulik explains why Provincetown, Massachusetts--alternately known as a€œLand's End, a€ a€œCape-tip, a€ a€œCape-end, a€ and, to some, a€œQueersville, U.S.Aa€--has meant many things to many people. Provincetown tells the story of this beguiling coastal town, from its early history as a mid-nineteenth century colonial village to its current stature as a bustling gay tourist destination. It details the many cultures and groupsa€”Yankee artists, Portuguese fishermen, touristsa€”that have comprised and influenced Provincetown, and explains how all of them, in conjunction with larger economic and political forces, come together to create a gay and lesbian mecca. Through personal stories and historical accounts, Provincetown reveals the fascinating features that have made Provincetown such a textured and colorful destination: its fame as the landfall of the Mayflower Pilgrims, charm as an eccentric artistsa€™ colony, and allure as a Dionysian playground. It also hints at one of Provincetowna€™s most dramatic economic changes: its turn from fishing village to resort town. From a history of fishing economies to a history of tourism, Provincetown, in the end, is as eclectic and vibrant as the city itself.Essays by Patricia Holder, Fort Street High; Ann Holder, Concord; Jennifer Fleur Crocker, no school/suburb listed, ibid. 17. ...
