Adam's Nest Blog

Celebrating 5 years with gratitude!

Celebrating 5 years with gratitude!

Today we opened Facebook and were reminded that five years ago today we stepped out of our comfort zone and closed on the shop in Provincetown that would become Adam's Nest.  In all honesty; best decision ever!  To everyone we've met in the shop, and everyone that has shopped with us online, a heartfelt thank you for making it possible.  The past year has been a challenging one, but with everyone's support, it will be one for the history books.

HIV Prevention and Ending Stigma

HIV Prevention and Ending Stigma

Adam's Nest is sex positive! Know your status. Get tested. Change stigma.  Prior to becoming Adam's Nest there was a small business started called "offontheweb".  It began as a tumblr page described as a place: "for the love and lust of men...

Jacobs' "50 Lessons of 50 Years" that included "pain is inevitable, suffering is optional" and "you can love yourself by rethinking love and self." Many of the lessons have come up in prior conversations between us and have helped us get through these trying times.  We thought we would share his blog as he posts lessons on the approach to 50; we passed that milestone a few years back. Damon has had a major influence on the mission of Adam's Nest, and we have found his "50 lessons" particularly helpful.

International Women's Day

"Your silence will not protect you." Audre Lorde In recognition of International Women's Day! We love our Ptown community and especially happy with our home across from Womencrafts and Michelle Axelson. We share Michelle's passion in recognizing the importance of safe spaces and how their continuing existence is far from obsolete. The last four years only highlighted the need for feminist, queer, safe spaces. There is so much work to be done as we strive to create a truly just, safe, equitable, world for all.

Happy Women's History Month!

Happy Women's History Month!

"So let's all of us, including all the groups that decide who gets hired and what gets made and who wins awards, let's all of us make an effort to expand that tent, so that everyone rises and everyone's story has a chance to be seen and heard."  Jane Fonda accepting the Cecil B. DeMille award at the Golden Globes
