Bearz Beads

Saint “Bearz Beads” Dennis Fortin

Before moving from Boston Dennis aka Saint Bearz Beads was a prominent figure amongst the Boston Bear scene. You could often find him spreading joy at the Alley and other bear events. Dennis was constantly mingling with the crowds and ensuring everyone felt welcome and as if they were a part of a family. You could often spot him by his light up accessories! The biggest way Dennis spread joy through out the community was by handcrafting necklaces and bracelets out of his own pocket to give away to anyone who wanted one. The beads used were made of the colors of the bear flag to represent the community he loved so much, and through these bracelets he passed that love onto and through others.
