Pennsylvania state Rep. Brian Sims will hold a “Beer and Bears” campaign fundraiser during Provincetown's Bear Week, which kicks off Saturday.

Sims will appear at two back-to-back events on Tuesday, July 15.

A $250 per person cocktail reception will be held from 1-2 PM at the Sage Inn & Lounge, followed by a $50 per person “Afternoon of Beer & Bears.” Tickets can be purchased here.

Sims, a Democrat, is the Pennsylvania Legislature's first openly gay elected member, though Rep. Mike Fleck, a Republican first elected to the House in 2006, came out in 2012, making him the state's first openly gay lawmaker.

Other openly gay politicians have campaigned during Bear Week, most notably New York Rep. Daniel O'Donnell, who self-identifies as a bear.
