A growing movement in the gay community supports the term bear as a lifestyle choice rather than it’s traditional meaning referring to a rugged body type.

To be a bear in the past meant being older, heavy set, hairy, and having a tough physique. Nowadays we treat the term as an all inclusive idea that we as gay men can be exactly who we are. We can be tough, we can be hairy, we can be large, we can be nerdy, or none of those things, or all of them.

But the most important parts of being a bear is being accepting of each other and supporting others to feel good in their own skin. We do not encourage cattiness, bitchy, dramatic, or negative actions that are common in many parts of LGBT communities.

We encourage unity through building a better, stronger, and closer community with an emphasis on inclusion.



Bears Las Vegas’ goal is to put the Bears back on top of this town! We only promote events in public places where everyone and anyone can attend. We do not support private or exclusive events. We love all bears and the men who love them back, so we will never turn anyone away. If you wish to promote an event on our page please be mindful of this, it’s very important to us.
