If you love em’ big and hairy, this event’s for you. The 11th annual Urban Bear NYC will take place in Manhattan from Thursday, May 16th to Sunday, May 19th, welcoming thousands of men to four days of events in NYC. Hunky DJ Bears Ted Bishop & DJ Dandylion (Saturday) and DJ Chauncey (Sunday), will be turning up the heat with fabulous beats – hopefully shirtless, of course.
Now in its 11th year, Urban Bear NYC is an annual series of events for the Bear and Bear-friendly gay community celebrating NYC. Second only to Provincetown Bear Week, Urban Bear NYC is the largest event of its kind on the East Coast featuring bar crawls, dance parties, a sunset cruise on the Hudson, beer busts, Bear Invasion of The Vessel, performances and more.
The main event, The Urban Bear Street Fair will take place on Sunday May19th. This highly anticipated milieu brings out thousands of supporters annually, and takes place in NYC’s Meatpacking District, just below the Highline. A portion of the fair’s proceeds will once again go to benefit The Callen Lorde Community Health Center, one of the leading health advocacy organizations to benefit the LGBTQ community.
Callen-Lorde is the global leader in LGBTQ healthcare. Since the days of Stonewall, they have been transforming lives in LGBTQ communities through excellent, comprehensive care, provided regardless of ability to pay. Also, they are continuously pioneering research, and education to drive positive change around the world.
So, if you’re in the New York City area, throw your razors away for the next few days and let that fur fly. Come hang out at Urban Bear and join thousands of the world’s hottest and hairiest men, celebrating the international bear community and all its fur-lovin friends.
