I hope you will all join us in welcoming Benoit as a new competitor for the Mr Ottawa Bear competition.
Benoit is a 39 year old pocket bear who hails from Québec city where, as a young cub, he managed a gay bar for bears and leathermen.
He moved to Ottawa five years ago where he currently works as an elementary school teacher and moonlights as a DJ.
Benoit has been involved in the gay community and especially the bear community for over fifteen years and more recently, he has been helping to creating a special event that will highlight the different talents from our community.
He loves cycling, craft beers, music and going out with friends.
