Welcome to the Viking Bears

We are a non-profit organization for youths and men of all ages.

To be a member of Viking Bears is a good away
to build bridges and meet new friends.

 THE BEAR MOVEMENT  STARTED

IN SAN FRANCISCO

It’s started  by a group of men who were tired of the prevailing gay stereotype of being forever-young, slim, clean-shaven and well-trained.

The first Bear organization in Scandinavia was created in 1995 — the Viking Bears-Sweden — which has now celebrated its 20th anniversary — with the aim of uniting people, counteracting loneliness and alienation, combating prejudices and increasing international solidarity.

 JOIN  THE BEAR MOVEMENT!

 

Your membership helps us strengthens our activities in Sweden and internationally, supports those members who are openly gay and those who do not wish to come out publically — a privacy which we of course respect.

 

The Bear committees working with festivities, other activities, international work, etc. are always looking for new volunteers — for an hour, or for longer work.  We need marketing experts, economists, party organizers, web developers and more.  Join us!

 

As a non-commerical association run by volunteers, we are eager to create a Bear community of colleagues and friends here in Sweden and internationally.
