Who is a bear
Bears are one of many LGBI+ communities with events, codes, and a culture-specific identity.
Here is the term "bear" known as a generally large, hairy man embodying the image of rugged masculinity, the bearded face and "cuddly" body.
Above all, the "bear culture" is about feeling good in your own body and enjoing natural masculinity,
not to be focused to the trends of modern times.
Bears tend to include their friends into the community – thus even heterosexual men who have Bearish physical traits and are
affirming of their gay friends and family (or their gay fans, in the case of a celebrity) may also be informally accorded "honorary" Bear status.
A smaller number of lesbians, particularly butch dykes, also participate in Bear culture, referring to themselves with the distinct label of ursula.
