FAMOUS LAST WORDS...

Yes people .... we made it again! On behalf of all my The Web colleagues, I would like to wish you a very good, healthy and horny year 2020.

A lot has happened in the past year, both in The Web and in my private life. I have already shared a lot with you in previous columns such as the Change of Law on Conversion Therapy (something I have fought for over 35 years and I am very proud of). The law still has to pass through 

the Senate (mid-March), so keep supporting your support.

I was also proud to be a jury member in 2019 for both the MIster Bear Netherlands and the Mister Bear World elections. We were also happy with the many successful events that we were able to experience in our bar and will continue to do so in the new year.
 
Before I talk about that, I want to give the room for another look back at 2019 and I would therefore like to give the floor to my colleague Kevin:
"Lovely people! A question to all of you: Where were you on December 14 at 9:30 PM? I remember it. I got backstage (nervous) in the Westerkerk. I was about to enter the stage to tell people my story. We had a wonderful Christmas concert where homeless young people were in the spotlight and people came to tell their personal stories. That also applied to me. It was very special and beautiful to be able to share my story with others and thus finally give visibility to quite a big problem in the Netherlands: Being homeless as a young person (LGHBT). People soon forget that living on the street is difficult, let alone as a 
rainbow youngster.

And then the moment came that I was allowed to sing a beautiful song together with the group "De Poppers. And as was so beautifully expressed, they gave the note and I soul to it. I was very proud to be able to do this together with them After this, I had five minutes to get dressed and climb onto the stage in full leather, I sighed for a moment, closed my eyes, and then started my story - I briefly explained how my fiancé took me six years ago. was thrown into the street, and how for years I fled from everything and eventually found love in Berlin, and then lost the love of my life through a heart attack, and then the destruction of myself started because I no longer wanted to live. to end up in the hospital where I had to fight for my life.
Dear people, what I want to give you is when you're out and about, don't look at your phone and start a conversation and let's focus on each other instead of the phone and social media. Because that is what this society is all about. Consider for a moment that the person next to you is very shy about having a nice chat. let's rebuild the community together and help people fight in difficult times.
 
A big kiss from your one and only Kevin Deurloo (Mr Leather Netherlands 2020 first runner up) ”
P.S. If you want to watch this evening again, you can do so at: https://youtu.be/PLZdlGumjEA and our Kevin will be on screen with his story at 21.10

As mentioned earlier, we also look ahead and then I want to talk about the first major event: the Amsterdam Bear Weekend 2020 (19 to 23 March). Many of the events will take place in the Bear Cave, as The Web is called in these days.

The Mister Bear Netherlands election will also take place again. I would like to make a warm plea to participate. I myself participated in a gray past and then also won the World elections. And since then I have had the title ": Mister International Grizzly Bear 1996". OK ...... it has been articulated for a long time, but it has meant a lot to me and has brought much to this day. I dare say that a lot of what I have achieved could not have achieved if I had not won this title. I also believe that participating is very important for your self-confidence. In addition, you can have a year-long influence to place our Bear scene in a good light and there is an attractive prize pool. So sign up (before 15 February 2020) via the following address MisterBear@AmsterdamBearWeekend.nl.
 
I am very enthusiastic about the expectations that I have for both the national and international level in 2020, but I will gladly discuss that in the next column.

Make it a beautiful and safe 2020 and be proud!
greetings from Jacques Zonne
