BEAR ESSENTIALS 26 - REVISED
This past Tuesday night, 18th Jan 2022, the Harbour City Bears committe decided to substantially reduce our Bear Essentials 26 program during the 2022 Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras. We have cancelled the plans for all indoor events, including UNDERBEAR & Wet Furr, due to the ongoing uncertainty around the pandemic.
We will be going forward with our normal presence at Fair Day, Sunday 20th, Feb, Obelisk Beach Day, 28th Feb & the Parade at the SCG 5th Mar as well as some additional outdoor events to be announced.
We very much appreciate your ongoing patience in these unprecedented times and encourage you to keep safe out there.
It is with a great sense of responsibility to our membership that with the current NSW Government Health advice, we have taken measures to postpone all Harbour City Bears events moving forward. We will make further contact about our future events as and when more advice is issued via the NSW Government. We apologise for the short notice and appreciate your patience as we continue to navigate this pandemic in our membership's best interests.
SELF CARE RESOURCESIf you are feeling overwhelmed or concerned for your own wellbeing, please reach out to one of the following resources:
Volunteering is a great way to get involved with Harbour City Bears, the bear community, getting to know people and help our community at the same time. There are lots of different ways to volunteer with HCB. You can help out at one of our events, with fundraising, or with the administration of the club. Event volunteers help with setting up, checking tickets, or any of the heaps of tasks that go into making our bear events successful. Volunteers at ticketed events also get free entry to the event.
It’s easy to volunteer with HCB, click on the links to the right.
Bear Buddies is another great way to get involved with Harbour City Bears on another level.
Bear Buddies are volunteers who use their time to ensure people have access into the community.
