Queer Slang of the Week

21 Dec

ACO talks us through more queer slang. Look’s like we’ll be going A-Z. This week, B is for….

Bear: a gay or bisexual man, often with lots of facial and body hair, who tends to be stocky or heavy-set. As a metaphorical allusion to the animal, bears generally place importance on hypermasculinity, emphasizing physical strength and solid dimensions.
ACO says: Basically… a queer lumberjack.
