Bears San Diego was established in San Diego in October 1994 when a need was recognized for a group who did not fit in with the mainstream gays, Within the first year, the club grew to 100 members. In 2003 Bears San Diego took the next step and began our journey to become a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization. We finalized the process in the summer of 2006 when Bears San Diego got its final approval from the Internal Revenue Service to do business as a Non-Profit Organization. Bears San Diego is bound by a strict set of Bylaws and operates under Roberts Rules of Order. Bears San Diego is both a fundraising organization AND a social club, balancing the needs of the community and the needs of the membership. Club members consist of all types– bears, cubs, and otters and those who have little or no body hair but enjoy the company of hirsute men. We do not discriminate–we have non-gay people and women in our club as well! Bears San Diego’s purpose is to bring together men of like minds on a social basis, providing events at a local bar, den night at members homes, outings to movies, restaurants, the zoo and parties with other Bear Clubs. These gatherings give participants the opportunity to actually meet other bears and admirers to create new friendships.
