‘Love the skin you are in’ is the catch cry for this year’s Northern Exposure – Queensland’s premier bear festival which each year attracts visitors from all over the country.
Organised by Brisbears, NEX 2015 will run Thursday October 15th to Sunday October 17th and offers a wide selection of events including a Cubearet (cabaret) evening,pool party, a Bearzilain feast, party nights, and of course the annual Mr Bear QLD competition.
The Brisbears organising committee told QNews that this year’s theme and selection of events reflected the welcoming approach which has seen the festival attract bears, cubs, chubs, otters, twubs and their admirers from Queensland and afar to celebrate masculinity and friendship.
“This year will see Brisbears celebrate the 15th consecutive year of Northern Exposure,” organisers said. “This year’s theme is ‘Love the Skin You’re In’ building on from our vision of acceptance and in celebration of our sometimes large, sometimes hairy, sometimes not so perfect bodies.”
