Who will be Mr Harbour City Bears 2014?
For Ash Luton, 25, the best thing about being crowned Mr Harbour City Bears 2013 has been “representing the bear community at a number of different levels, including my very first Mardi Gras”.
Luton (right) will be front and centre at the next Mr Harbour City Bear competition this Saturday, May 10, at the Midnight Shift.
Hosted by Aunty Mavis (left), the competition will feature three rounds with different challenges and plenty of interaction between judges and contestants.
Among the prizes, the winner of Mr Harbour City Bears 2014 will represent Sydney at the Mr Australasia Bear Competition at Southern HiBearnation in June.
So what advice does Luton have for this year’s contenders?
“Be proud of yourself – win, lose or draw. It takes a lot of guts to get up there, and to me, they’re all winners for throwing their name in the hat.”
