Our chosen charity for this year has been Gay Men’s Health. This Scotland based charity involves and empowers gay and bisexual men to promote the health and well-being of all men who have sex with men. BearScots are proud to support the Gay Men’s Health and our fundraiser over the BearScotsFest weekend raised £1,430.00. Thanks for your support!

Wouldn't it be handy if you had the programme for BSF2013 on your phone, along with all the venue details, maps, contact numbers and other info you might need for the weekend?
As you may have noticed, we've completely rebuilt our website this year. We've put a lot of thought into making sure it works just as well on your smartphone as on your computer. We know that most of you boys have iOS, Android, Windows and whatever else in your pockets nowadays (yes, we did notice the sea of Scruff and Grindr screens in The New Town last year!) ... so why not carry the info you need to make the best of your weekend on yours?
If you want to get your phone ready for BearScotFest this year, bookmark our BSF programme or better yet, add it to your home screen (it'll behave just like a purpose-built app). If you're a little more daring you can also add the BearScots shared Google calendar to your phone's own calendar app, this also contains venue locations, maps, numbers and everything else you'd expect.
And for those of you who've decided not to embrace the smartphone revolution (or if you choose not to carry a mobile at all), don't worry! You'll still receive the usual full welcome pack at our registration desk, which includes a good-old-fashioned fold-it-up-and pop-in-in-your-pocket style programme!
BearScots is Scotland's group for bears, cubs, chubs and their admirers.
