Family Week is an entire week full of family-friendly events – cookouts on the beach, Parent & Youth Cafés, art exhibits, a movie night, athletic activities, a family parade and dance – lots of great options for the whole family! Date: Saturday, July 28, through Saturday, August 4, 2012 Location: Provincetown, MA 02657
Family Week is the largest national gathering of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) family community in the United States and represents unique opportunities for LGBT parents and their children to come together to:
Create life-long connections in support of one another
Share stories that will open other hearts and minds in their own communities
Raise their collective voices to create social justice for all families
Now in its 17th year, Family Week 2012 is being presented as part of a series of community events that will honor Family Equality Council’s 30th anniversary – a year-long national celebration during which we will unveil a renewed commitment to create a better world for our community of LGBT families.
During Family Week 2012, July 28 – August 4, hundreds of LGBT parents, their children, their extended families, prospective parents and friends will gather at the tip of Cape Cod in gay-friendly Provincetown, to relax and enjoy this amazing event.
Early registration is encouraged for Family Week, an event that traditionally draws hundreds of families from across the country and beyond to the sun-splashed, sandy shores of Cape Cod.
Families are also encouraged to book accommodations best-suited for their families as soon as possible by choosing from among a variety of quality hotels, inns and guest houses in Provincetown. Please contact the Provincetown Tourism Office for assistance,www.provincetowntourismoffice.org.
Traditional Family Week favorites include the Parent and Youth Café conversations, the Family Unity and Pride Parade, Family Movie Nights, the Family Dance and the exciting children's and youth adventure activities focused on the arts, environment, and fitness – just to name a few!
Be sure to join us this year in Provincetown for Family Week 2012 – the vacation your family has dreamed about. We have a whole week of fun waiting for you!
