Washington, DC-based musician Tom Goss wanted to give some love to the bear community, so he unleashed his latest single, "Bears," with an accompanying video directed by Aram Vartian and Michael Key, onto the public to show his fondness for this hirsute set of men. The video features a pool party full of big, hairy men, affectionately known as "bears" by some in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, shooting each other with water guns and enjoying a Slip N' Slide. Goss, in a kiddie pool, sings about how "bears got the best of me, bears are my fantasy," thereby showering some love onto a group that usually doesn't get the pop song treatment. In a press release for the video sent to The Huffington Post Goss said, "We are overrun with images of perfect men, in perfect clothes and perfect bodies, and as a result, many people doubt their self-image. This video showcases what it means to be beautiful and sexy, regardless of size. It makes sense coming from Goss who might not be labeled a "bear" but who has been married to "self-professed bear" for three years.
See, that’s what the app is perfect for.
Into Hairy? These Guys to the Rescue! • Instinct Magazine
When it comes to grooming, men have followed the lead of women in recent years, and opted for a hair free body. There is no shame in a man admitting to waxing or shaving these days, preferring a polished torso to a hairy chest. Nothing wrong with a bit of a tidy up but men stripping themselves of all masculinity completely seems a waste. Give me a rug over a smooth chest any day of the week. I want to date a man not a plastic doll.

Nick Jonas has spent the better part of the last month promoting his new single, " Jealous ," and his upcoming DirecTV series, Kingdom , with a dizzying media tour that has included not only interviews with several gay publications but stops at several gay bars. At HuffPost Gay Voices we've written about how Jonas happily showed off his abs at these bars, engaged in some light flirting with the patrons and has generally spent the last few weeks going out of his way to prove that his affinity for his gay fans is more than a mere marketing ploy or if it is marketing ploy, it's one to which he and his team are fiercely dedicated. Then, just when we thought Jonas had given all he had to give to us, we were gifted with his photo shoot in Flaunt magazine , which included several shots inspired by Marky Mark's iconic Calvin Klein underwear campaign. The images hemorrhaged their way across the Internet and for good reason: They're hot and nostalgic, two things we can rarely get enough of but, for me, at least, they're not the most interesting thing to come out of the Flaunt shoot. It's a beautiful photo, but it's also one that you'll rarely see in mainstream media because of one thing: the small patch of hair fanning out across Jonas' lower back and creeping down his ass crack.
