Bear World Magazine reveals Digital Bear Weekend featuring an awesome line up of LGBTQ stars!

Today, we at Bear World Magazine are excited to announce that, on May 16th & 17th, we will be bringing all the fun of a bear weekend direct to your homes in the world’s first FREE digital bear weekend! 

In a time where bear runs and pride events are being cancelled or postponed around the world due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, Bear World Magazine has decided to lead the way in bringing together the global bear population in a virtual celebration of music, workshops and brotherly love. 

The Digital Bear Weekend will feature a huge array of bear talent from around the world including performers Big Dipper, Tom Goss, Justin Utley, Big Daddy Karsten, Paul Middleton, Jace the Caveat, Tareq, Yanni Burton, Benjamin Koll, Jack Tracy, Homer Marrs, Graham J, Gordon Michaels, MikeMRF and Marco Perfetti, and Cody Copeland. There will also be DJ sets by well-known bear DJs, including DJ Press Play (Shane Tate) and DJ Lorant. 

The weekend will also feature performances from drag and burlesque artists, including Vita Summers and Eugene Guy, and workshops covering topics such as yoga, wellness and sex and relationships. Plus, there will be short films to enjoy, podcasts to listen to, and entertainment chatter from Alexander Rodriguez with a surprise celebrity guest! 

The weekend is totally free to attend, so come ready with your digital dollars to tip these awesome artists!

Like a true bear weekend, there will be a schedule shared nearer the time confirming when the acts will be performing on Bear World Magazine. Alongside the videos, there will be a range of fun things to read on the Digital Bear Weekend website and a selection of bear products to buy in our virtual bear market. 

Robin Gray, Editor of Bear World Magazine, said: “In these difficult times, I’m so proud to be bringing this Digital Bear Weekend to bears around the globe who will potentially be sadly missing out on their favorite bear runs this year. If we can bring some of that excitement and happiness into people’s homes, then it’s a job well done for us. Bear World Magazine has always prided itself on being a magazine run by bears for bears, cubs and their admirers, so it felt only right that we step up and help our community.” 

Digital Bear Weekend is sponsored by W | Bear and BearCity, with more sponsors to be announced. A big thank you to all of our sponsors for helping to make this weekend happen.
