Many thanks to John Burrows and the Provincetown Bears, who invited me to give a talk on the Early Bear Movement at Provincetown Bear Week 2010. Along with John and David Thompson I was one of the three founding member of the P’town Bears in 2001. And my Bear Icons and Beyond art exhibition was featured at the first annual Provincetown Bear Week in 2001.
We had a nice turn-out of some 40 bears for the two-hour program. P’town Bear Week’s numbers have risen from 300 in 2001 to 7500 in 2010.
