Many of you will know the Yorkshire Bears from our own and other bear events around the country (and even further afield, to Spain!). Geoff from Yorkshire Bears has written a marvellous review of last year’s weekend, when he and a group of friends hit Brighton for three nights of beer, bears and bad behaviour … you can read it right here.

We can’t wait for the Bear-B-Q Picnic on Saturday 18 June! Barbecue and other delicious food will be available from Lunch Positive, who do great work in our local community. We talked with Gary Pargeter to find out what they do and what to expect at the picnic … read the full interview here.
We’re on the cover of this month’s Gscene magazine! The cover photo, taken by local photographer Peter McEachern, features members of Brighton’s gay and inclusive rugby team, the Sea Serpents, who will be at the Bear-B-Q and other events over the big weekend (16-19 June).
We’re looking forward to our local inclusive rugby team’s Sea Serpents in the Garden of Envy variety show at Envy (above Charles Street bar) on Saturday 11 June. Doors open at 7:00pm, with the show starting an hour later. Dave Lynn and Kara Van Park will be hosting, with special guest appearances from Sally Vate, Davina Sparkle, Mysterry, Trudi Styles and the Pianoman, and Laura Nixon as Marilyn Monroe, as well as appearances from members of the Sea Serpents. After the show, the night will continue with tunes from DJ Ant Nichols.
The night will raise funds for the rugby club to compete in the Union Cup 2017, Europe’s gay and inclusive rugby tournament. The club will donate up to £1,000 of the profit made to help the renewal of the Sussex Beacon Summer House, which brings much joy to users of the charity’s clients and their families.
