Hi Ace,
What does the term “Bear” mean to you?

“I’ve actually had a lot of discussions about this. I am a straight transgender man and I do not identify as a bear. However I do label myself as a pup. People seem to get very offended by this because they say that only gay men can claim that along with bear, cub, wolf, ect. But I disagree with that. I think a bear is someone who, regardless of sexual orientation, is of large stature, not necessarily tall, with tons of body hair, and is a kind person.”

Personal Statement: Hi, I’m Oliver, and I am asking for help. It’s not easy to talk about, but here goes.
I am a trans man. For those who don’t know what that is, I was assigned female at birth, but always internally felt like a man. Since I’ve medically transitioned to male I’m happier and more fulfilled. Every trans person takes their own path. No two paths are alike. For me, to feel best about myself in my body I need to take one more step on my path that requires additional surgery. So, I’m reaching out to anyone with a few extra bucks to spare to help me out. You may or may not know me, but I assure you any contribution, even a small one, will honestly mean I will be closer to being comfortable in my own skin. Nothing is more important than that, whether you’re trans or not. If you can help, you have my deepest gratitude. If you can share this page with others via social media, whether you can contribute or not, you also have my deepest gratitude. Be well, and know that I truly appreciate every penny raised by this personal fund. http://www.gofundme.com/fq1oo0

Hi Clint,
What does the term “Bear” mean to you?

“When I close my eyes and think of what a bear is, I probably have the same visual image as most people. Visually, bears tend to be beefier guys with facial and body hair as well as a blue collar or hyper-masculine look. But to me, the term bear goes deeper than the visual aspect. I think the bear community as a whole is all about acceptance. I have traveled to many bear events and there are guys of so many shapes and sizes, furry and non-furry, and they all consider themselves bears. Bears, in my opinion, tend to be more accepting of each other, very social in nature, and fun-loving. I always joke that the bear community is always so friendly and accepting because we eat! We eat, we drink, and…well…we do what men do. So being a bear to me is about being who you are, and enjoying each other for who and what we are.”

What’s your idea of a perfect date?

“Honestly, I have had the “perfect date”. I was lucky enough to be with the man of my dreams for 17 years so I have had a million perfect dates. The next man I date/love will be someone who makes me laugh, and that I make laugh too. You know, the you’re laughing so hard you’re wiping tears from your face and can’t breathe kind of laughter. Whether we are at a restaurant, at a bar with friends or just lying on the couch cuddling up together, I want to laugh. The man who makes me laugh will win my heart. Any date with that man will be the perfect date.”

How would you describe your personal interior design style?

“I am a very simple guy, so my tastes tend to run as such. My favorite room in the house is my den. It has a southwest design with a lot of earth tones. The walls are lined with cowboy hats and southwestern art. Of course that room also has a big screen television and two very comfy couches.”

What kind of music do you listen to?

“My taste in music changes all the time. I can enjoy anything from choral music to hard rock. Most of the music on my ITunes is dance music, with some country thrown in for fun. I love to dance to both. Whatever the sound, words are important to me. I have to know every word to every song. I want to understand the lyrics and what they mean. Understanding the words and lyrics makes it easier when I am singing along.”

Fitness Routine:
“When all the pieces and parts are working, LOL, I am at the gym 4 times a week. I do a very basic exercise routine of upper body/lower body. I try to change my routine every 3-4 weeks. Even if that just means changing from dumbbells to a machine. Anything to break up the exercises to keep my mind interested and my body confused. I also do treadmill two or three times a weeks and once a week I try to play some basketball.”

Occupation: “Human Resources/Corporate Trainer – I hire, train, and fire… (not necessarily in that order).”

Hobbies: “I love to travel. I try to travel somewhere every month. It’s a big gay world out there, and I want to see it all. My trips don’t have to take me across the world, but somewhere where I can meet new people and experience different things. I admit I am developing a fondness for several European countries though.

Because of my love for music, I like to make dance remixes. A couple times a year I will organize an event at the local bar where I can DJ and share my music. The last party was a lumberjack party.

Finally, I love to bake. I am the type of person that shows they care by baking for people. My momma told me when I was just a little bear-cub, “If you want to keep those bears happy, you’ll need to learn to cook in more than one room of the house”. So I learned to cook, everything else came naturally.”

Guilty Pleasure Snack: “Well like any bear, I can’t get within a mile of a cupcake without starting to drool. But when I think “guilty pleasure”, I think of things that I love so much I can’t stop myself; my biggest guilty pleasure is Flaming Hot Cheetos. They are crazy addictive! I can sit and eat a whole bag and not think twice. I especially love when my fingers are covered with yummy Cheetos goodness! I will even tear open the bag to make sure I get to the crumbs at the very bottom of the bag.”

TV Faves: “If you were to check my DVR over the past year, you would find True Blood (did not like the ending), Walking Dead, Hot in Cleveland, Tosh.0, Cupcake Wars and Robot Chicken (how’s that for a mix). I also watch a lot of sports as I am a big Kentucky Wildcat fan (Go Big Blue)!”

Last good movie you saw: “The last movie was Guardians of the Galaxy. It was such a fun, quirky movie. I loved it.”

Turn Ons: “I have a major beard fetish. A nicely trimmed and well defined beard is really hot. Chest fur is also pretty high on my list. Sexy muscle cubs and daddy bears always catch my eye. I like guys who look like they take care of themselves physically, but they can’t be too serious about it. If you’re going to stress over eating a cupcake (or 2…or 3), you’re not the guy for me. Life is too short to not eat cupcakes.”

Turn Offs: “I don’t like people who are arrogant, rude, disrespectful or passive aggressive.”

Personal Statement: “Over the past few years I have learned that life is short. We have to kind and love each other because we don’t know what tomorrow will bring. I also believe we have to take time to laugh and to make each other laugh. If we can laugh together, we can be compassionate with one another; if we can laugh together, we can forgive each other; if we can laugh together, we can LOVE each other. Make someone laugh today.”

We ♥ the Pop Art of Doug Bale

From canvases to throw pillows, we are digging the Surreal, Colorful Pop Art of Doug Bale
Doug Bale: “My art is inspired by my personal meditation and modern spiritual archetypes. The art starts out digitally and has recently shown up on pillows, cubes and t-shirts. The faces are meant to be a “visual meditation” and hopefully hone in on the viewers imagination and personal visions.”
