It is time for an anti-racist, pro-feminist, anti-xenophobic, pan-generational, spiritually awakened, class-conscious, eco-friendly, heart-centered and radically all-inclusive bear movement to begin. It is time to come out of the comfortable social niches, or out of the shadows. It is time to engage in the world at large. As neo-liberal capitalism takes over world economies and neo-conservatives take over governments, it is time to stop passively consuming. Join your grassroots efforts to a larger project. Bring your ideas to a forum for exploring ways to engage practically. Take back the radical gay / queer / LGBTIQ agenda. Prepare for the 21st century. Join the Bear Left! caucus at Creating Change 2011 in Minneapolis.
