Hot Dance Parties, Wet Pool Parties, ABSOLUT® Inn Stroll, Comedians Karen Williams & Mimi Gonzalez, Bestselling Author Dorothy Randall Gray
The party is on! Provincetown hosts the 7th annual Women of Color & Friends (WOC) Weekend, May 17-19.
This one-of-a-kind, three-day event brings lesbians of color, their friends and supporters together from across the country.
Provincetown will roll out the red carpet with dance parties with hot beats, a pool party, the ABSOLUT®Inn Stroll, and a show-what-you’ve-got talent show hosted by comedians Karen Williams and Mimi Gonzalez. Celebrate culture with bestselling author Dorothy Randall Gray and top the weekend off with the always-popular Gospel & Blues Brunch.
The Crown & Anchor, 247 Commercial Street, is the weekend’s headquarters.
Bestselling author Dorothy Randall Gray, whose books Choices and Consequences topped independent bookstores’ must-read lists, joins the WOC celebration at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 18, with a book reading and signing. Gray also is co-author of the best-selling book Soul Between the Lines: Freeing Your Creative Spirit Through Writing, and author of numerous well-received books of poetry, fiction and nonfiction.
Comedians Karen Williams and Mimi Gonzalez will bring down the house again this year and raise the roof as emcees of the back-by-popular-demand talent show.
The ABSOLUT® Inn Stroll takes the fun to the streets, and a pool party, dance parties, Gospel & Blues Brunch and other special events make this one of P-town’s hottest weekends of the year.
The event is organized by Provincetown For Women, a Provincetown-based production company, and a committee of leaders from women of color communities across the country. Major sponsors include ABSOLUT® and Olivia Cruises.
