We are a nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster and facilitate cooperation amongst member clubs and promote acceptance and empowerment of big gay men and the men that admirer them. We represent big men, bears, cubs and their admirers. We provide assistance to our member clubs and individuals seeking opportunities to come together without fear of being shunned for being large or liking large men. Our network enables big gay men to socialize and value ourselves by celebrating being big, healthy, and alive. We promote being proud of who we are and knowing that issues that affect us all can be shared with each other to foster and generate a healthy environment for all.
BGMO is a new name for the former organization that was called Affiliated Big Mens Clubs (ABC). The mission of ABC and BGMO are virtually the same, but for organizations to continue to move themselves forward, organizations need to change with the times in order to remain a viable organization. ABC was formed on September 1, 1985, by a group of big men and their admirers that wanted to help the big gay man’s community to connect, in positive meaningful ways that attendees of the functions and events felt comfortable. The name and a new set of bylaws were changed in April of 2013, which formed BGMO.
BGMO is continuing the tradition, as well as moving itself forward as an active nonprofit which allows us to accept sponsorship’s and do fundraising to continue to provide services and the needed assistance to all of our members and the big gay man’s community around the globe. Thus being a voice for issues that big gay men face in everyday life, just because they are large in size as well acceptance for those that like large men.
