Our Story - How Prague Bears started
We are an association of gay guys and boys who like trips on foot and by bike as well, good meal and of course – bears.
On September 2012, seven month later after we had started preparation,
we announced Prague Bears which are now a service platform for organizing events for bears, guys, lads and their admirers in Czechia.
We would like to continue the tradition of gay bear culture in Prague and Czechia.
We missed support of the young bears of Generation X or Millenials and admirers as well in Prague, and also regular events based on cooperation with similar communities not only in Prague but in whole Czech Republic.
We missed other kind of events apart from weekend trips to countryside.
We also felt lack of support of tourists and those who don't speak Czech.
We wanted to support those who are not from Prague and thus prefer bear meetings on weekends.
Firstly we intended to cooperate and contribute to the activities of existing organizations, we started negotiation in January 2012.
Due difficulties of the negotiation and a different opinion
we decided to establish our own group.
Thus we are another group than "CZ Medvědi Praha", we work independently.
Since 2015 we work as the official registerred association Prague Bears, z.s.
The content we offer to public is both in Czech and English.
We organize events where we have fun and allow people to make connections.
We hold regular weekend trips to the countryside. We meet on a regular bear party. We go on trips with other fellow groups (not only bear groups).
We take part in Gay Pride marches (PraguePride.cz, DuhovyPride.sk) and we actively contribute for its content.
In the summer we invite all bears and cubs, guys and lads and their friends to prolonged bear weekends.
There we have daily trips and "bear" evening program.
Instead of make the group closed we are still looking for cooperation, whenever it is possible we join events of similar communities – trips or bike riding, swimming or visits of interesting places (Visit a new Prague tunnel Blanka) or for example seminars (The Lighthouse).
We are open for all guys, bears, admirers of bears and their friends. If you would like to come to our event as a newcomer – just come :)
