Prowler, the gay sex shop and online gay sex toy store to sponsor the Bear-B-Que during Brighton Bear Weekend in June.
The Bear-B-Que will take place in Dorset Gardens on Saturday, June 17 from 12.30pm to 5.30pm.
This year’s Bear-B-Que features a main stage profiling a host of local performers with one of the many highlights being an appearance by Brighton’s LGBT+community choir, The Rainbow Chorus.
New as well this year, will be a little market place and the Sea Serpents, Brighton’s Gay Rugby Club will be there with their coconuts.
Delicious food and snacks will be provided by Lunch Positive, the HIV lunch club and a bar will be run by the Brighton & Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum.
Peter Booth Manager of Prowler in St James Street, said: “Myself and the Prowler Brighton team are thrilled to be able to support the Brighton Bear boys. We have provided casual support over the last few years selling their products in store commission free.
This year thanks to our new owners ABS Holdings we have been able to step the support up a gear via sponsorship. I couldn’t be happier. BBW are a fantastic organisation who work tirelessly in support of the Rainbow Fund.
In addition to sponsorship Prowler Brighton will also be offering 20% OFF all full priced stock to all BBW wristband holders from June 16-18, so pick up a wristband for just £6.
Support the boys and take advantage of some great offers in Prowler and around the area.”
Yet through all of this, they have always been helpful and smiling. I applaud their community minded spirit that allowed us to still put our stock in allowing us to raise hundreds of pounds more for The Rainbow Fund. Even when times were hard they still wanted to help others.
The Prowler sponsorship money will be a great help in reducing our costs at the Bear-B-Que while we bring a fabulous furry party to Kemptown for everyone in the LGBT+ spectrum to enjoy.
The whole team look forward to seeing you there”
