The Provincetown Business Guild (PBG) now has a retail storefront on Commercial Street to promote celebrations related to the LGBTQ community.
The Ptown LGBTQ Welcome & Resource Center will be open in May during Pride Weekend at 368 Commercial St. with a series of programs titled “Zero to Equal,” honoring the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, which have been called the catalyst for the gay rights movement.
The PBG actually opened its first center, then called “The Shack,” last year on Bradford Street. It served as a trial spot, but having a location in the town center will allow for more visibility and better access, said Mike Kelley, founding chair of the Center and a board member of the PBG. He said the center’s primary functions will be threefold: information and resources, tickets for themed events and branded items for sale.
