This winter, while grizzly bears across North America hibernate, the Daddy Bears of Provincetown will be on their feet and shaking their asses. P-Town is best known as a gay summer destination, though New England’s homo-haven continues to heat up the queer social scene well into the chilly winter months. For LGBTQ+ New Englanders looking to thaw out on the dance floor, we’ve rounded up P-Town’s hottest queer events this season.
