Bears in Undergear: The Bear Underwear gathering is just around the corner, August 9 in Little Rock. the E-blast I got stated that, "everyone is encouraged to get with the theme of the gathering and strip down to your underwear at the door". Clothing bags are provided. All types of underwear are acceptable.. .(brief, boxers, jocks, leather). No dress code will be enforced. If you are not comfortable in just your undies, that's cool, just wear whatever is comfortable for you. Doors open at 9pm and close when the last Bear and Cub leave. This is a private gathering by the Diamond State Bears; all Bears, Cubs, Otters (and those who like them!) are welcome. For more info, go to our website www.diamondstatebea rs.com. Or contact Michael at http://us.mc578.mail.yahoo.com/mc/compose?to=LRmales%40yahoo.com I'm not sure If I'll be attending even though I've got some very cute undergear but if you do and want to share the who, what, or why of what you saw, then do so.
Pride in the City: I've gotten no word as yet as to the outcomes of the recent Capital Pride attempt to regroup with board elections, 7/26/08. Nor, was there a response to our challenge concerning a 50/50 participation. If you don't remember, I stated that if 50 people showed their support with a $50.00 cash donation during the meeting, this forum would throw a fundraiser at our expense. In full disclosure, I was out of town and couldn't attend. But so far, I've gotten, "crickets" which translates into "Silence." However, if you missed the meeting or my posting yet still have an interest try contacting: Joe@lrcpride.org We'll keep you posted.
