MOTN was initially aimed at the over-25’s, as that was where the gap on the scene appeared to lie, however, that age restriction was removed quite early on, as it became clear that there were plenty of younger guys who felt that they didn’t fit in on the dancefloors of the other gay bars/clubs. You have more clubs for music, you have more bars to socialize in, you have social nights for mingling, and you have dating apps.In Summer 2016, MOTN held its ever-popular Belfast Bear Weekend – it would be our 15th bear themed weekend and our final event.

In many respects a community-based film, this delightful romantic comedy involves a wedding with no lack of close, zany friends, including many local characters and bearish actors Frank de Caro and Jason Stuart; crowd scenes were shot at the Boatslip tea dance, showing big, furry guys wall to wall.
