Please welcome Blue to our competitor lineup for Mr Ottawa Bear 2020!
Blue is a 56 year old, pocket bear originally from Toronto who now makes Ottawa his home. He transitioned five years ago into being the man that he is today and was delighted to discover he was a bear and a bear lover!
He’s been involved in the LGBTIQ community since 1991 when he first came out in Toronto. He worked at the 519 Community Centre in the Toronto Gay Village and was very involved in all things queer while there.
In Ottawa, he has worked to make the Jewish community more accepting and inclusive to those identifying with the LGBTIQ community.
He presently works with new immigrants teaching them English.
