Finally, more bear content creators have advanced to the forefront of my YouTube algorithm and this one is a welcome surprise. Being an absolute tech nerd myself and constantly looking up news, updates, and deals, I came across a YouTube channel named 4 The Love Of Tech, a channel based on, of course, you already guessed it, technology plus other nerdy tidbits.
We all can recognize that HBO’s OZ was a compelling 90s series that had us captivated with their dramatic tales of prison life, as well as vibrant characters with their own life struggles to survive the Oswald State Correctional Facility, nicknamed “OZ.” From the interesting, yet dangerous inmates to the staff members of the prison, this show managed to be ahead of its time; giving us somewhat of an informal look inside the mind of an inmate and the politics it takes to survive without sacrificing their authentic emotions. However, let’s not ignore that OZ also gave us some excellent well-timed comedic scenes as well as some iconic unclothed lewd eye-candy scenes to break up the monotony of sadness.

"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!!!

As a bear, seeing pure bear representation on mainstream television is slim to nonexistent. The reasons behind this exclusionary travesty are plentiful. For starters, people in Hollywood don't know what a ‘bear community' is. Yes, they know the look and maybe a basic amount of our terms, but they don't know our strife, or humor, or our creativity. Secondly, Hollywood tends to follow a sort of basic gay aesthetic with many gay series on TV like Noah's Ark, Queer As Folk, Will & Grace, etc... Don't get me wrong. I adore all the series listed. They paved the way for the explosion of gay content today, but they represented the generic portion of the community, showing the aesthetic of twinks, toned men, and maybe a muscle stud or two. They didn't describe, or rather celebrate, me or many chubby, hairy, bearded bears watching. Which brings me to my last reason: Marketability. Even though it is 2020, the year of our bear lord, the culture and Hollywood still don't see big gay men as sex symbols, at least not well enough for them to carry their own series or narrative. They are so set in their ways of thinking that it is hard for them to take a chance on a gay bear project. However, if Hollywood wouldn’t give us an opportunity, the Internet would with web series, which was where I caught my first glimpse of a TV series catering to the gay bear subculture.
I can remember when I learned of Michael Clarke Duncan's death. I didn't follow celebrities, but I couldn't pretend that his death didn't affect me. I was hurt. I actually cared about a person who I never met and would never know. I started digging to find out as much as I could about this man. I actually started to feel grateful the celebrity gossip rags for bringing all this information to me. For the first time I understood the obsession that is People and Us magazine. I often ridiculed them, but now I was turning to their reporting to learn everything I could about this man.
Maybe it's because there aren't many celebrities like Duncan that I never formed any attachments to movie stars before. I'm obviously into big guys and the media just wasn't offering up the people that interested me.
