In Silver Lake the bears are always roaming the streets, rarely growling.  And once a month they’re at Akbar.  The monthly Bears in Space event at Akbar on May 18 brought together bears and those who love them (all those cute otters and cubs, etc.) for a party in the back parking lot followed by dancing inside.   The photos below from Rolling Blackouts tell you what you missed.  But remember, Bears in Space will be back on earth at Akbar on June 22.

For those who are unaware of his previous assignments, he was one of the priests at St Victors here in West Hollywood along with Msgr. Parnassus. St Victor was one of the first Catholic churches in Los Angeles to embrace not only the gay community… Read more »
