Press: Bear Magazine Roars Back to Stands


The bears are back in print! Following a six-year layoff, Bear magazine will soon resume publication. New owner Bear Omnimedia LLC has announced it will produce 40,000 copies that will be circulated worldwide. The revived issue 65 is free and will be distributed at bear and gay events and in adult bookstores.

Launched in 1984, Bear represented a growing community of gay men who were beefy, ├╝bermasculine and unapologetically hairy. Now, the new version will reflect an emerging contemporary bear movement with erotic photography and provocative fiction blended with humor and information that is of interest to bears and the gay mainstream. The new magazine will be published quarterly starting in February 2009.
