Join us as we return to Provincetown for the social event of the season! Prepare to be dazzled and delighted while celebrating recent victories, discussing our ongoing work, and supporting GLAD’s mission to fiercely protect LGBTQ+ rights!

Our Honoree

This year, we are proud to honor Varla Jean Merman – a community celebrity, champion and LGBTQ+ advocate – and celebrate the creative and enduring role of drag in the LGBTQ+ community, organizing, and culture!

Varla Jean, aka Jeffery Roberson, has spent the last 30 years performing at such venues as Carnegie Hall, the Sydney Opera House, and Lincoln Center, as well as the occasional plywood-covered pool table at a dive bar near you. Her 27th consecutive one-woman show in Provincetown, “Varla Jean: The Errors Tour” runs at the Crown and Anchor all summer long.
