Christopher Triezenberg was born and raised in the south side of Chicago. He came out to a very supportive family at the age of 14. He spent his teenage years loving dance music and frequently went to the only underage age gay club in Chicago. As he came of age he became a prominent part of the local bear group. Chris started attending TBRU in Dallas every year, and fell in love with Texas! Moving to Houston in 2014 he couldn’t believe the warm welcome from the LGBTQ+ community here. “I’ve made lasting connections with the Montrose community and can’t wait to see what’s next by helping spread awareness! I’d also like to add I won an award for “cutest cub” at the South Texas Bear Run in Corpus Christi, haha.”
