The winking bear in his tightey-whiteys should tell you a lot about Guide for the Modern Bear. It’s a tongue-in-cheek instruction book to gay subculture, complete with cool city maps and cheerful pictures. It’s both a travel guide for gay bears traveling around the USA, and a glossary for those perplexed as to what a bear is, all done in a fairly adorable package.

— Ken White - Books Inc. in the Castreo


A humorous, stylish guide to the gay subculture.
