Bearracuda San Francisco GAY Pride! | Friday June 28,
In male gay culture , a bear is often a larger or obese hairier man who projects an image of rugged masculinity. Bears are one of many LGBT communities with events, codes, and a culture-specific identity. However, in San Francisco in the s any hairy man of whatever shape was referred to as a 'bear' until the term was appropriated by larger men and other words had to be used to describe hairy other-shaped men such as otter slim , cub young bear on the way , or wolf hairy, medium build. The term bear was popularized by Richard Bulger, who, along with his then partner Chris Nelson — founded Bear Magazine in There is some contention surrounding whether Bulger originated the term and the subculture's conventions. The bear concept can function as an identity or an affiliation, and there is ongoing debate in bear communities about what constitutes a bear. Some bears place importance on presenting a clear masculine image and may disdain or shun men who exhibit effeminacy ,  while others consider acceptance and inclusiveness of all behavioural types to be an important value of the community.
A fun, friendly party for bears, cubs and other wildlife.

The bear identity created positive self-images and an affirming subculture beyond the narrow concepts of gay masculinity and eroticism that prevailed at the time. On display will be archival materials from a number of Bay Area organizations and events for which Frisch produced promotional illustrations:.

The film follows year-old Riley, a young tomboy who loves hockey and her friends. When her father starts a new company in San Francisco she is forced to leave her home in Minnesota and start over in a new city and school. The City by the Bay is a gay Mecca. If Pixar is going to do a story of a young girl discovering herself as a lesbian it only seems fitting that San Francisco is the setting.
