The dust may have settled on Southern Hibearnation 2017, but we are still celebrating the success of Mr NZ Bear winner Morro for taking the main prize at Mr Australasia!

He worked hard over 3 rounds to wow the judges in Melbourne to take the sash!

On Friday we paid tribute to our winner – let’s hope he is a benevolent King!

Thanks for a fab week!

So ends another LYC Bear Week (although we do have a parade on Saturday – more on that later this week).

Want to say a massive thanks to everyone who came along and supported us. We literally could not do it without you. Literally. Our bear community may not be the biggest but it is certainly one of the friendliest.

Thanks to all the venues and sponsors who have been amazing once again. Especially to the NZAF for their continued support.

Congrats to Morro and all the contestants in Mr NZ Bear. It takes a lot of balls to go on stage. Morro – you’ll wow them in Melbourne.
And finally thanks to all of the Bear ‘cabal’ who have helped put on an amazing week without a hitch. All volunteers, all friends, still… I think 🙂

There will be more Furry Flashmobs through the year, more Urge parties, before we start thinking of Bear Week 2018. Wonder what the theme will be???
