OUR MOTTO: BROTHERHOOD, COMMUNITY, CAMARADERIE


Mass Bears and Cubs, Inc., is a Massachusetts 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, organized to provide and promote an inclusive LGBT+ community through charitable fund raising and other community events. MBC is an organization that is administered 100% by volunteers, and we are grateful for the service of our Board Members, Officers, administrative support staff, and others, all of whom devote their time and talents to MBC on a volunteer basis.


A group whose mission is to be supportive of the LGBTQ+ community at large, we are not only “Bears” and “Cubs,” but “Otters,” “Twinks,” younger, older, Black, Asian, Latinx… and whatever other category you might consider yourself. We welcome all and are an inclusive group, not limited by any traditional definition of “Bear” or “Cub.” We are all of you… we are everyone.


We invite you to explore our Website. Here, you can meet our Governing Board virtually, learn about our history, view photos from our past events, discover volunteer opportunities supporting local non-profits, preview upcoming events, purchase MBC branded merchandise, find out how you can support us, and more. Our Website is updated regularly, so check back often!
