As we go through difficult times in the United States with racial divisions the Bear Community of New York City is standing together to fight for all our brothers and sisters who come from other lands to find safety and a better future.
The Deep End
On August 3rd, Three Bears and a Cub, conducted a fund raising to support the Immigration Equality Movement. Passionate for our community, Joe Mannetti, Mister International Daddy Bear 2009, shared a story about how his family migrated from Italy seeking a better life after the war. Thats the reason why he started raising funds for Immigration Equality, along to Dan Jimenez, Mister New York Unlimited Bear 2018, George Williams, Mister New York Unlimited Cub 2018 and Jed Ryan, Mister North American Bear 2012. The event was celebrated at The Deep End, an artsy bar located in Ridgewood, New York. Various performers from the community shared their talents. It was a night full of joy and unity
