Best wishes and good luck to the Brighton & Hove Sea Serpents rugby lads who have travelled to Amsterdam to compete in the international Bingham Cup 2018 rugby tournament this week. We know you will do us proud as always!
In the last of our profiles of the DJs who will be rocking the dancefloors at this year’s Brighton Bear Weekend, we look at Bozzy Bear, who has been performing at the weekend for several years.
This morning (Saturday 2nd June) we’ll be taking over the entire Out in Brighton show on RadioReverb with Kathy Caton! We have a plethora of guests who are involved in the big weekend, including Billie Lewis from Brighton and Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum, Gary Pargeter from Lunch Positive, Aaron Lawrence (Spice), Jason Thorpe, Jon B, Neil Borrett (DJ Bozzy Bear), James Ledward and more. We might need a bigger studio!
You can listen to the live broadcast on 97.2 FM in the Brighton area, on DAB+ and online from 11:00 to 12:00 this morning. We’ll also post a link to the archived podcast when it becomes available. Thanks for listening!
Brighton Bear Weekend is on the cover of the June 2018 edition of Gscene, Brighton and Hove’s popular news and listings magazine!

Rob C is a very familiar face at bear, Pride and fetish events in the UK and beyond. He has just finished touring the USA and will be back at this year’s Brighton Bear Weekend with two more blistering sets (Uproar on Friday 15 June, and Woofer on Saturday.)
In Part One of Rob’s DJ profile, we chat with him about what he has been up to and what he’ll be doing next. We’ll also find out his Top Five Current Dance Tunes which you can hear in a fantastic hour-long mix! Read more and listen »
“June 14 marks the start of Brighton’s brilliant Bear Weekend. Four days full of fantastic events guaranteed to keep every fun-loving Bear entertained. The weekend has been a huge supporter of the Rainbow Fund over the years. Helping to raise much-needed funds for local LGBT/HIV support groups. At a time when government funding for such projects is much reduced, communities really do have to look after each other, so thank you gorgeous Bears. Wishing you all a fun, happy and safe weekend.”
Thanks, Zoe! You can read the full article containing Zoe’s statement in Gscene:
