Leipzig bears are a group of gay men from Leipzig and the surrounding area. A beard, body hair and a stocky figure can be external characteristics of a bear. But that is not all, and not all Leipzig bears look “bear”. But what connects all those who come to our meetings is the preference for bearded, hairy men and the desire for a society of men who have preserved their naturalness.

Why is there the Leipzig bear?

With these physical characteristics and/or preferences, the bears within the gay scene belong to a minority. They often experience discrimination in this scene as bears do not always correspond to the commercial beauty ideals of our society today. A resulting body shaming can exacerbate psychological stress factors and lead to a retreat from social contacts to isolation.

When and how did it all begin?

In autumn 2016 everything started with a first hike. A group of 20 bears set out to explore the town of Grimma and the trail along the hollow. As the popularity of our joint ventures grew, we decided to expand the circle of interested parties to bears. We founded a Whatsapp and a Facebook group and brought in other interested bears into the boat. The groups will be informed about the planned activities and, in retrospect, leave a small report on the activities as a reminder. In the meantime, there are already over 140 members, who come not only from Leipzig but also from the distant surroundings. With the Internet presence, should be reached also those who are not registered with Facebook. Everyone is welcome,

Our goal…

… is to present our newly established bear community to the outside, to strengthen our gay community and give individual members, who are inhibited, to meet with others, to give some support and the security in the group. We would like to take the members or potential prospects in front of their computers and behind their smartphones, so that they can get to know each other personally, have a great time together and have a great time together. Already now good friendships have developed and perhaps this sociocultural idea leads to many partnerships. A very worthwhile destination.
