...'With the intention of drawing a
parallel between the apostles, fishers of men for the Christian cause,
the bears as bait for other men (real men, with hair on their chest),
establishes a series of suggestive connections: the representation more or
less sexy of this type of beauty
- which we could call alternative - which
distances itself from the mainstream representation
of the ideal gay man by
using the cultural context which underlies many sociological phenomena, mainly
at an unconscious level'.
