Mr Australasia Bear, Jason Lee, has added another sash to his already overloaded shoulders, this time in the mother country.

Lee, who also holds the Mr Harbour City Bear title, was named Mr Great British Bear Bash at the event of the same name at the Birdcage nightclub in Manchester.

“I’m so happy it’s great to win, especially good when you beat the Poms,” Lee told Southern Star from the UK.

“Who would have thought a year ago when I entered the Mr HCB competition that I would go on to win the Mr Australasia Bear title and now this.

“Everyone jokes that I’m a sash queen but now I have three sashes, I guess I am.”

Mr GBBB was held this month as part of the annual Great British Bear Bash at the Birdcage.

Lee won a cash prize and a photoshoot for a local gay and lesbian health charity — promoting health to UK Bears and Cubs.
