A place for me to dump images I like and to share the odd opinion. I'm a partnered gay man who loves bears, so there will be some NSFW pics involved. Not exclusively but, hey, who am I kidding? - There will be bears... A lot of the pics come from my archives and are possibly older than some viewers (I jest, but only just). If you spot one of yours that you'd rather the world didn't see anymore, let me know. (By the way, the avatar isn't me - just what I like!) - Flying Monkeys (@brownbear37)

Chubstr as you become confident in your style @brownbear37


As you become confident in your style, do you feel better about yourself?

Absolutely. I feel incredibly handsome! I feel good. I feel on top of my world right now. It’s a common perception, and I don’t know where it comes from, that because you’re big, you don’t think you look good. That’s so weird to me! I don’t know when all that started. I think bigger people, men and women, don’t feel like they CAN look good, so they don’t actively participate in life in that way. It’s a weird cycle of assuming that because you’re big, you can’t look good, and because I’m big, I don’t look good and I won’t ever look good, so why get into it? It’s just passive. Get out there and be somebody! Motion creates emotion.

We head to the new Indochino showroom in L.A. to chat with Charley Koontz​ about fashion, CSI: Cyber​, body positivity, and being a good-looking big dude in Hollywood. Read the interview and see more photos:

Doctorwho bbc three today announces class a @brownbear37


BBC Three today announces Class - a new 8 x 45 minute Doctor Who spin off from the acclaimed YA author, Patrick Ness. Class is a YA series set in contemporary London. Incredible dangers are breaking through the walls of time and space, and with darkness coming, London is unprotected. With all the action, heart and adrenalin of the best YA fiction (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Hunger Games), this is Coal Hill School and Doctor Who like you’ve never seen them before.

Steven Moffat says, “No one has documented the dark and exhilarating world of the teenager like Patrick Ness, and now we’re bringing his brilliant story-telling into Doctor Who. This is growing up in modern Britain - but with monsters!”

On his first television series, writer Patrick Ness says, “I’m astounded and thrilled to be entering the Doctor Who universe, which is as vast as time and space itself. There’s so much room there for all kinds of amazing stories, and to work with Steven Moffat and Brian Minchin to find a place to tell one of my own has been an absolute joy. I can’t wait for people to meet the heroes of Class, to meet the all-new villains and aliens, to remember that the horrors of the darkest corners of existence are just about on par with having to pass your A-Levels.”

Class is executive produced by Steven Moffatt, Patrick Ness and Brian Minchin. It was commissioned by Damian Kavanagh, Controller BBC Three and Polly Hill, Controller BBC Drama Commissioning.

Hours after today’s massacre in Oregon, President Obama took the podium for the 15th time after a mass shooting. Sounding stern and appearing frustrated, Obama challenged Americans to respond more forcefully to this shooting. His full, impassioned statement is one every American needs to hear.

Thegayreich wwii gay gis recounts tale of @brownbear37


WWII Gay G.I.s recounts tale of losing their Lovers

Excerpt from the book Coming out under fire The history of gay Men and Women in World War Two: Combat soldiers often responded to each other’s personal losses with the deepest respect and understanding, allowing gay GIs to express openly their grief over the death of boyfriends or lovers. 

Jim Warren’s boyfriend was hit while trying to knock out a machine-gun nest on Saipan. “They brought him back,” Warren recalled, “and he was at the point of death. He was bleeding. He had been hit about three or four times. I stood there and he looked up at me and I looked down at him and he said, ‘Well, Jim, we didn’t make it, did we.’ And tears were just rolling down my cheeks. I don’t know when I’ve ever felt such a lump and such a waste. And he kind of gave me a boyish crooked grin and just said, ‘Well, maybe next time.’ And I said, ‘I’m going to miss you. And I’ll see your mother.’ There were people standing around, maybe seven or eight people standing there, and I was there touching his hand and we were talking. Somebody said later, ‘You were pretty good friends,’ because I had been openly crying and most people don’t do this. I said, ‘Yes, we were quite good friends.’ And nobody ever said anything. I guess as long as I supposedly upheld my end of the bargain, everything was all right.”

Ben Small was even less able to control himself when his boyfriend was killed in the Philippines. But he, too, was surprised by the other men’s compassion towards him. “We had a funny freak attack of a Japanese kamikaze plane,” he recalled, “and I guess he was getting rid of his last load of these baby cutter bomb, these little bombs that explode at about three feet high so if they went off through a tent they exploded at bed level. I had just been in the tent of a guy I had been going with at the time. He crawled into bed, and I said goodnight and walked out the tent. And this plane came overhead and all we heard was explosions and we fell to the ground. When I got up too see if he was all right, the trust of the bomb had gone through his tent and he was not there. I went into a three-day period of hysterics. I was treated with such kindness by the guys that I worked with, who were all totally aware of why I had gone hysterical. It wasn’t because we were bombed. It was because my boyfriend had been killed. And one guy in the tent came up to me and said, ‘Why didn’t you tell me you were gay? You could have talked to me.’ I said, ‘Well, I was afraid to.’ This big straight, macho guy. There was a sort of compassion then.”

After a raid in the Philippines, Ben Small remembered, a lieutenant who had been injured was being shipped back to the States, so the men “all went to the plane to see him off that night. It was an amazingly touching moment, when he and his lover said goodbye, because they embraced and kissed in front of all these straight guys and everyone dealt with it so well. I think it was just this basic thing about separation of someone you cared for, regardless of sex.” Small described this tender parting as “a little distilled moment out of time” when men’s “prejudices were suspended” and gay soldiers “could be a part of what this meant.”

Go go bear drew green needed some stress @brownbear37



Needed some stress relief last night - apartment hunting is taking the wind out of my sails for sure - so I drew this cute pinup.  It’s similar to another pinup I drew for a client but I’m not able to share that one *just* yet.  Look forward to it!

Created using my cartooning brush set!  I’m working on organizing an update which features the brush I used for the inks here (probably my new favorite brush).  I’ve been procrastinating on that, but it’ll be worth the wait.  The update WILL BE FREE so if you buy the brushes now, you’ll get the additional brushes when they release soon at no additional charge.



Drew is so talented and had just landed a job with Cartoon Network. This is his own creation, the swoon-worthy Ross :)
