Gin and Bear It photos

Fancy a gin and tonic? You’ll be able to get your fix at the Brighton Bear Weekend Bear-B-Q on the afternoon of Saturday 18 June, because the guys from Gin & Bear It will be there with their mobile gin bar.

We took some photos of Aaron and John (in the black t-shirts) with our own Graham at the Camelford Arms recently. Have a look at the photo album!

Radio appearance with the Sea Serpents

If you missed our appearance on Radio Reverb’s Out in Brighton show on Thursday, you can listen to it here. Together with Ian and Chris from Brighton and Hove’s new rugby team, the Sea Serpents, we talked about rugby, growing up gay, and our upcoming events (our own Black Valentine on Sunday – see below – and the Sea Serpents’ first match against Kings Cross Steelers IV at Hove Rec on Saturday 20th February). Here we are in the studio:
