theurbanbear.com/weekend2013


The 5th Annual Urban Bear Weekend NYC, The East Coast’s fastest growing annual Bear event is held over four days throughout NYC with expectations of hosting over 2,000 bears and their admirers for a weekend that includes cultural events, a Bear invasion of MoMA, dance parties, multiple club events, a comedy revue, BBQ, and beer busts all culminating in our annual street fair in the heart of the MeatPacking district featuring the infamous Lady Bunny on Sunday May 5th with proceeds benefiting Marriage Equality.

This year we expanded our internet presence beyond our many Facebook and Twitter fans with our online lifestyle website, theurbanbear.com, allowing us to reach an international audience eager to connect with the Bear community at large. Packed with photos, reviews, events and articles throughout the year, our site keeps growing and has become a major marketing force as we prepare for the May event.

A full listing of the weekend events can be found at theurbanbear.com/weekend2013. To advertise or become a vendor,, contact info@theurbanbear.com.

Robert valin david kelly wed on sunday june @theurbanbear

Robert Valin & David Kelly Wed


On Sunday, June 17th, my partner David & I got married New York style above Rockefeller Center on a roof top garden surrounded by close friends and family. It was an amazing day that I will remember the rest of my life and I consider myself to be the luckiest man in the world having been able to marry my best friend and lover.

Click here to check out some photos from our big day

A special thanks to all the well wishes we’ve received and to the countless men & women working to make Marriage Equality a right for us all, both here in New York and throughout the country.

And while were on the subject of weddings if @theurbanbear

And while we’re on the subject of weddings…


If you too are planning on tying the knot or know someone who is, I’m sure you’re very much aware of how crazy and out of hand things can get on the big day. Give yourself the gift of truly enjoying your wedding with the help of my friend, Andy Tonken.

After attending nearly 20 weddings in 5 years, Mid-Atlantic Leather boy 2011 and NYC pocket cub Andy Tonken decided he’d build a side business for himself. He’d coordinate weddings. He’d show up, keep the event running smoothly, make sure the couple ate dinner, and even find crayons and coloring books for restless nieces and nephews. Now, several years later, Tonken does just that, multiple times a year, in venues large and small, weddings casual and black tie. He’ll make sure you hav
e no schmutz in your beard (he found some in mine) and that your mother gets the seat she wants - with or without her ex-husband (plus he’s cute :-)

For rates and to discuss your wedding, email Andy at CakeWalkWeddingCoordination@gmail.com or follow Cake Walk Wedding Coordination on Twitter @CakeWalkWedding

Featured Artist: Alexei  Biryukoff


Alexei  Biryukoff  is a figurative painter and a sound artist from Siberia, Russia, who is currently   living   and   working   in  New Jersey. His work explores
masculinity and celebrates natural beauty of an average next door man.

In  2004  his first conceptual show called ‘Naked Loneliness’ was  banned  by  the  local officials of Barnaul, Russia. It did not stop him from pursuing his art career and exploring the subject matter even further, today his works are in many private and art   establishment collections across the world. Alexei is also known for   his   dark ambient   sound   art under   the   name  Muhmood http://www.muhmood.net
