Mr Bear Perth

Mr. Bear Perth is a representative of Bears Perth Inc, who is crowned each year during our Mr. Bear Perth Competition.

The Perth Bear community through Bears Perth Inc. is searches each year for a person to represent Bears Perth Inc. in the coming year, and Perth’s contribution to the Mr Australasia Bear Festival. The title holder will represent our State in the Mr. Australasia Bear competition in June.


This competition is not to find the most attractive, large, muscled or most hairy bear. It is to find the man that most typifies what a bear is in today's ever-changing world. Someone who can uphold the values of self-confidence, masculinity, understanding and inclusiveness.


The title holder is expected to be an ambassador for the Bear community, promote a positive bear image, foster unity within the bear culture and be a role model for those new to the community. He must maintain an openness, respect, and willingness to work with all aspects of the LGBTIQ and wider communities.
