FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A few hours ago, Massachusetts voters rejected bigotry and discrimination by overwhelmingly voting YES on Question 3, a ballot veto measure that sought to repeal Massachusetts Senate Bill 2407, which prohibits discrimination based upon gender identity. By a margin of more than two to one, voters upheld the law. A no vote would have repealed SB 2407 and allowed discrimination on public accommodations for transgender and gender nonconfirming people.
Mason Dunn, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition and Co-chair for the Freedom for all of Massachusetts Coalition sponsoring the Yes on 3 Campaign (and a keynote speaker at Fantasia Fair 2018), said “Voters here in Massachusetts have sent a powerful, unmistakable message that this is a state that values, welcomes, and honors transgender people.” Yes on 3 Co-Chair Kasey Suffredini said, “Winning this popular vote is irrefutable proof that public support for transgender people is growing, and tonight’s outcome will provide the necessary momentum to change the landscape on transgender rights everywhere.”
Fantasia Fair recently celebrated it’s 44th year in Provincetown. Provincetown, Cape Cod, and Massachusetts have been home to the Fair for 44 years and have provided amazing support and understanding for our event and our attendees. We are grateful to the people of Massachusetts for voting YES on 3, sending a clear message of tolerance and justice to the United States and the world.

Director, Fantasia Fair 2018
Fantasia Fair is pleased to announce Dee LaValle as the Director for 2019.
Dee was brilliant as she took on many difficult jobs for 2018. She was director of programs and updated and laid out the participant’s guide. She did a thousand other tasks. During the Fair she was up late every night producing and printing the daily newsletter. I can’t say for sure how late she stayed up, but I went to bed at 4:30 am on Saturday and she was still at it.
Congratulations, Dee! Well deserved!

September Fantasia Fair Gazette No. 1
We have approved the artwork for the charm for 2018.
Cleverly and skillfully designed by Dee LaValle, the pin incorporates and seamlessly blends the Fantasia Fair logo, with its two reversed styllized Fs, with the transgender symbol developed in the 1990s by the late Holly Boswell.
The charm, like the ones from previous years, is 3/4″ and made of metal. It comes with a loop for attaching to a bracelet or necklace, but can be easily converted to a lapel pin by use of a stick-on back. These will be available in the Fair office. Just ask us for one.
Hooray, the August FF Newsletter has been published!
