M3 Bear Essentials: Integrating Bears and Big Bois

Male Media Mind compatriot Ali Lopez recently had a conversation with the promoters of a website that showcases provocative pictures of various men within the Bear community. When asked about expanding the racial diversity of the models chosen, it was expressed that any social advocacy objectives would trumped by the original intention of fiscal gain, that promoting Bear models of color, specifically African Americans, would not prolong their financial stability since in their experience their audience is unperceptive to Black men. M3 Contributors Malcolm Travers, Gerald Hogan and Breeze Vincinz discuss their impressions of the often exclusionary practices of the Bear community and the validity of African Americans splintering off into the subset commonly know nas "Big Bois."
