MOB, Past Event Report

MOB Proceeds Donated to Charity

As most of you already know this year’s Mr. Ottawa Bear was a resounding success and helped raise some much needed funds to help rescue LGBTQ+ refugees who are being persecuted, tortured and killed in countries where being gay is against the law and sometimes punishable by death.

Northern Lights Refuge is the charity that was chosen by last year’s Mr. Ottawa Bear recipient, Adam Frey.

Adam has been working directly with this organization since it’s inception.

A cheque for $500 was presented to Adam by the Ours Ottawa Bears president Lars and the current MOB title holder Chris.

The Ours Ottawa Bears committee would like to thank all those who attended MOB 2018 and who donated generously to this very worthy cause.


Mr Ottawa Bear 2018

Congratulations to the newly crowned Mr Ottawa Bear 2018: Chris Nerpin!!

Hats off to his two co-competitors, Pedro Diaz and Shawn Green who were brave enough to put it all out there for us.

A heartfelt thank you to our three judges, David Gazzola, Tim Cloutier and Tony Gibbs, and to Jason White for a job well done as our MC as well as to Jay Blackshire as judges boy and tally master.

And finally thank you to all the volunteers without whom we couldn’t have made this event the amazing success it was.

Mr. Ottawa Bear 2017

Congratulations to Adam who is this year’s Mr. Ottawa Bear!

With stunning performances by the Ottawa Gay Men’s Chorus, Boylesque and the Bytown Kings and featuring a surprise visit from our very own local bear celebrity Drake Jensen, the 2017 edition of the Mr. Ottawa Bear competition was a rousing success.

To loud cheers of “woof!” from the audience, Gustavo and Adam strutted their stuff onstage while a silent auction raised money for our chosen charity (Family Services Ottawa).

A great time was had by all!
