Bears Christchurch

Bears Christchurch is a group dedicated to celebrating gay men, their friends and admirers who like their men beary, hairy, chubby, stocky, or just a bit rough around the edges. Internationally the Bear Community is known for embracing a wide range of body types and attitudes beyond the stereotypical view of gay men. All shapes and sizes are welcome, and we are very inclusive. We also organise monthly events.
