G’day Bears, my name is Daniel Broadstone and I’ve been with the Derby City Bears periodically since its inception in 2014. My identity as a bearish man is only one aspect of my identity; I’m also a father of two daughters and a son, a grandfather, and the partner of a very smart and hardworking cub.

Hey folks. I’m Joe Higdon.  I’m fairly new to the Derby City Bears, getting involved after the encouragement of some great friends to participate in this year’s Derby City Bears title contest.  I’m new-ish to the queer community having only been out for 5 years, but am finding my voice and where I belong.
