Of all the events and goings on in the Bay Area, Lazy Bear is by far my favorite. It's like a gay body image retreat. People naturally focus on the positive things everyone has going for them instead of expecting everyone to be an underwear model.
This year I camped, which I haven't done in years. I'm not outdoorsy, but it was our best option. Our other options were outside of walking distance. I'd rather poop in a hole and take semi cold showers than have to stay driving distance away. When I got home this morning, I spent several hours just enjoying having indoor plumbing and electricity again.
I have to say though, as much as I dislike roughing it, camping is kind of fun when it's pretty much exclusively gay. I think the closeness of all the straight people always made me uncomfortable whenever I camped before.
