The Northeast Ursamen is a social club that started in 1992 for the Bear Community. The Northeast Ursamen throws bingo and trivia nights, dinners out, and bear happy hours. Spooky Bear and Out of Hibernation take place in Provincetown, MA yearly. We also host the Connecticut Bear Contest and help support the winning title holder fundraise for the charity of their choosing and represent Connecticut at various community functions.
The 2022 Connecticut Bear has chosen Q Plus as their charity of choosing. This is a Connecticut based non-profit that uplifts and empowers queer youth through counseling, advocacy, leadership development, summer camps, open mic nights, and game nights. Q Plus supports GSAs at area high schools in Connecticut and also provides group support for the adults of our queer youth. Q Plus is a wonderful, hard-working and impactful organization that needs your support so it can grow. 10% of each order goes to Q Plus! For more information, visit qplusct.org.
