PHOTOS: Burly bears as far as the eye could see on the sandy beaches of Sitges

The annual Sitges Bear Week just came to a close. Just a few miles south of Barcelona, the Spanish coastal town offers one of Europe’s longest established LGBTQ scenes, dating back over three decades.

Thousands of bears and bear watchers came out for this year’s celebration, which included an entire week of pool parties, beach events, circuit nights, and other furry fun in the sun.
