Southern Bears brought its annual four-day, three-night gay bear weekend for charity back to the Courtyard Marriott over Fourth of July Weekend, and as usual, the best spot in the yard was in the pool.
Under this year’s theme of “Super Bears,” men from far and wide descended on the northeast Atlanta spot for games, parties and specialty events by day on the venue grounds, and a welcome wagon to Atlanta Eagle by night.
The furry fun included Saturday’s keystone daytime event, the pool party, where our photographer caught up to the action in the gallery below.
Bear soup was backed by DJ beats, special surprises, and of course, bears at every turn. The weekend benefitted AID Atlanta.
