So last night I finally got to see 'Bear City', and I was very pleased. I thought it was a great movie. Good cast, good story, and some good looking men. It was nice to see a gay movie, hell, a movie in general where the characters don't have to be perfectly muscled or toned to be the object of another character's affection. I hate how in most movies anyone with some weight to them is considered fat and is usually part of someone's joke. I also really enjoyed seeing a gay movie that centered around bears. Most gay movies tend to ignore the bear community. I really related to the main character, Tyler, as well. When I was 18 and just coming out, the first gay friends I made were my age as well, and they were all clean cut, twinky boys who dressed in clothes from stores like A&F and The Gap. Even though I tried to fit into that group for a while, I knew it wasn't me, and was afraid to come out of the so called "2nd closet" and tell them I liked older men, with body and facial hair, and dressed more down to earth. This was a great movie and I definitely recommend it!
