"Come as you are!" has been the motto of the Bear community since its inception, The Bear Movement has spread across the world but unfortunately there is a lack of diversity in its representation in media, advertising, and art to say the least. My first experience with a Bear club in the early '90s was one of the rejections but that same experience fulled my desire to see more diversity in the community that I would call home. At the same time, we must take ownership of our representation and become an integral part of the change, and we can no longer stay on the sidelines and ask for change, we must be the change, be involved, and support each other...The time has come for us to expand the definition of what is to be a Bear, as the animal counterpart, we come in a variety of sizes, colors, and nationalities, Is time we break out of captivity and expand the definitions to include the myriad of bear colors that the International Bear Brotherhood Flag represents, for No ones puts Baby in the corner...Not anymore!!!
