Freddy(aka Goldenheart) is an award winning Singer-Songwriter, music producer, festival organizer and workshop facilitator. He has organized LGBTQ music events like Qnity, Bearapalooza and Out in the Woods. After over a decade of going to Bear events, he began to look for a way to create a Bear event that fostered deeper interactions and formed real community. When he was invited to Easton Mountain, he got his chance, and created Bear Your Soul. He is also the facilitator of Bear Your Soul's core workshop Loving Our Bear Bodies, a group experience of self-love and appreciation for the bodies we live in. Freddy has taken the workshop to Bear runs in the Midwest, and to Bear Week in Provincetown, where it was featured on the Viceland cable channel. He and his husband Jay Freeman have been full time residents of Easton Mountain Retreat Center for 5 years, where Freddy is the current Director of Marketing and Communications.
