Queer hotelier, art lover, and philanthropist Alex Guerra is always such a joy to be around as he is so passionate about all his projects which always end up making a significant contribution to the LGBTQ+ community. A few years back he and partner Stephen Ginez decided to support queer artists and their work by mounting a satellite show in their Miami Hotel when the major (and very straight) ART BASEL arrived every December.
ART Gaysel didn’t just provide a space for these artists to promote and sell their art, but also a much-needed platform for queer artists to communicate, and even collaborate, with each other.
Then when Guerra and GInez fell in love with Provincetown a couple of years ago they ended up buying a house here. And it wasn’t too long after that Guerra wanted to start a Provincetown edition of Art Gaysel. There has always been a wonderful art colony in PTown but there is still a significant shortage of edgy queer art ….. the genre that Guerra is such a passionate specialist in.
So this Pride Week in Ptown….. still a relatively new event, Guerra put his money where his mouth is and filled the Crews Quarters with 13 highly individual queer artists. from across the glove for the first Edition of ART GAYSEL Ptown

Despite the fact that we have had almost 275K hits on YouTube (yeah!) they will not give us a single cent of the advertising money that they make off us until we have more subscribers.

NY Cabaret singer Seth Sikes was in Ptown briefly before the summer season to fulfill a long-held fantasy of his. He got to perform Judy Garland’s famous Trolley Song whilst whizzing around town on the Mayflower Trolley.
Now he is coming back to PTown with more of his favorite ladies: besides Judy there is Barbra, Liza and Bernadette etc for his brand new show at Post Office Cafe and Cabaret. Before he arrived he talked with QUEERGURU via Zoom to tell us what to expect : check out the video
