Harbour City Bears is busy planning the 2011 Sydney Bear Pride Festival, happening between Thursday, August 25 and Sunday, August 28.

Last year’s events included a film festival, which proved very popular with our members. This year we are planning an afternoon movie session on the weekend of the festival, as well as a dinner celebration to open the festival. Visit www.bearpride.com.au for more details at the beginning of June.

We’ve had another successful Underground Underbear party at Phoenix at the beginning of April. There were about 250 people through the door, and the Bears are already asking for another one!

In upcoming events, Chunky Inferno promises to heat things up at QBar from 9pm on Saturday, April 30. DJs Colin Gaff, Mark Alsop, and Troy Cox are in the main bar, with Rob Ladic, and introducing Dave Stevenson, the winner of Arq’s ‘So You Think You Can DJ’ competition, who are playing in the Pool Room. If you have been to QBar before, you will know it is the perfect party venue. So burn it up with the Beefy Blokes, Furry Studs, Cute Cubs and Hot Daddies of the Harbour City Bears!

And don’t forget on May 14 at Sircuit Bar in Melbourne, BearNation Vs Chunky, with Sydney’s Matt Effect and Troy Cox, and Melbourne’s Jason Leahy. There are discounted tickets for all members of Bear clubs around Australia. If you haven’t been to a BearNation party before, this is the time to get to Melbourne and check it out!

Tickets to these events are selling really well, and they can be found at www.daisytickets.com
