What is a

Get to Know Us

A gay bear is a term used within the LGBTQIA+ community to describe a subculture of people who are typically characterized by their physical traits, such as a larger, often hairy, or sometimes muscular physique. However, the term "bear" is more about identity and community rather than specific physical attributes. Bears often embrace all levels of masculinity and may reject mainstream standards of attractiveness, celebrating body positivity and diversity. The bear community is known for its inclusivity and camaraderie, offering a sense of belonging and support.  (Source: Google)
