GatorBears is a social group for masculine, hairy men (a.k.a. BEARS) and their admirers. There are many definitions of what a bear should look like, but as far as this group is concerned, there are no physical in's or out's. All are welcome who are interested in bears. We just want to have a good time!

GatorBears is strictly a social group of men who get together to have fun and enjoy the company of other gay men who share their interests. We meet several times a month for movies, dinners, and other social gatherings. Our most popular event is Bears on the River!  At this event, bears from all over the country come together for a weekend of events centered around tubing down the Ichtucknee River. We rent tubes and float down the COLD river in a big , friendly, pile.

In addition to tubing, the weekend is packed full of fun events including pool parties, contest, a beer bust, a drag show, and of course a night of dancing.  Pictures from many of our events can help you to see what our group is all about.

GatorBears is a very laid-back group. We have no "membership" requirements, no dues, and only a generalized "steering committee". Our events are always posted on the website calendar. Please consider joining the Google Group and subscribing to the calendar or joining us on Facebook to keep up to date with all our events.
