Erasure was playing. Chains of Love. Whether I asked him to dance or he asked me is a matter of some dispute. Do people still ask each other to dance in clubs? I do not think so. But we danced and 25 years later, here we are. It has not always been easy, or traditional, but it has always been exciting, and fun, and challenging, and comforting, and sustaining. And filled with love. -William J. Mann

Provincetown is considered one of the principal destinations in the world for LGBT tourism. By the 1970s Provincetown had a significant gay population, especially during the summer tourist season, when restaurants, bars and small shops serving the tourist trade were open. There had been a gay presence in Provincetown as early as the start of the XX century as the artists' colony developed, along with experimental theatre. Drag queens could be seen in performance as early as the 1940s in Provincetown. In 1978 the Provincetown Business Guild (PBG) was formed to promote gay tourism. Today more than 200 businesses belong to the PBG, and Provincetown is perhaps the best-known gay summer resort on the East Coast. The 2010 US Census revealed Provincetown to have the highest rate of same-sex couples in the country, at 163.1 per 1000 couples. Since the 1990s, property prices have risen significantly, causing some residents economic hardship. The housing bust of 2005 - 2012 caused property values in and around town to fall by 10 percent or more in less than a year. This did not slow down the town's economy, however. Provincetown's tourist season has expanded, and the town has scheduled created festivals and week-long events throughout the year. The most established are in the summer: the Portuguese Festival, Bear Week and PBG's Carnival Week. Timothy Huber (born February 11) & William J. Mann (born August 7) married September 17, 2004, on the beach at Provincetown.
