PHOTOS: A look back at bears around the world at Bearracuda

There may not be a bigger nightlife event than Bearracuda. This mainstay in the “bear” scene brings together DJs, go go dancers, and hordes of rugged, hirsute, and sometimes deliciously large men to mingle and dance the night away. And of course most of the men partake shirtless, at least.

Started in 2006 as a party in San Francisco, the Bearracuda brand has grown to include events in 62 cities, across 10 countries, celebrating men of all shapes and sizes and body hair coverage. 

There are some frisky shenanigans at those Bearracuda parties, and we have lots of photos of their parties that we are not allowed to publish. But the management of Bearracuda provided us with these, which document the furry fun from years gone by.
