About The Virginia Mountain Bears
The Virginia Mountain Bears is a group of gay hairy men, their admirers and supporters who are dedicated to brotherhood and unity. Started in January of 2006 in Roanoke, Va the Virginia Mountain Bears continues to be a staple for the community in Southwest Virginia. Our goal is to promote awareness of diversity and provide support to our community while creating a safe and friendly atmosphere for bears and their admirers to socialize and grow as a group. We have been a registered non-profit 504c organization since 2009.

We are happy to report that we raised $4750 at the 2013 Mountain Bear Madness: Hollywoof! Lights, Cameras, Bears. With the help of close to 300 attendees money was raised by way of silent auctions, bartender tips, and registration packages. The three beneficiaries are The Trevor Project, Council of Community Services, and the AIDS Service group. Thanks to everyone that attended the event and helped us in raising this awesome amount of funds for our charities.
