Cher: I Admire Chaz’s Courage

by Accidental Bear

It is small stories of acceptance like this, that show’s the rest of the world, primarily the mid-west, that Fuck, look at me I’m Cher and I have a trans son, whatcha’ gonna do about it (pumps up chest, hands risen gangster style)! I cannot imagine the mixed emotions one might go through having your child switch sex, but hey I think as hay-homosexuals we should just say to ourselves, “What would Cher do? “- AB

Cher is more supportive than ever to her son, Chaz, who legally changed his gender and name last year.

The iconic singer held a small screening of the upcoming documentary Becoming Chaz at her Malibu home over the weekend. “Cher and 10 of her and Chaz’s friends stood up and cheered when it was over,” a friend of Cher’s tells PEOPLE.

The friend says Cher told her during the screening, “I admire my son Chaz’s courage for sharing his personal journey. Most important to me is that he is very happy. That’s what I care about the most. He has my love and support.”

Chaz, who was born Chastity Bono to the famed singing duo, Sonny and Cher, started his female-to-male sex change March 2009, shortly after his 40th birthday. The documentary tells the story of his transformation from a woman to a man. It is scheduled to air on Oprah‘s OWN Network next week. READ MORE

Hawaiian Camo Shorts by Paul Smith?

by Accidental Bear

Help somebody stole my aunt Judy’s porch furniture and made shorts out of them. Hawaiian Camo? Hawaiian prints should stay to tops. I say the victim is never to blame, but you are asking for trouble in these shorts.

Paul Smith Goes Hawaiian Camo via Shorts

Paul Smith Hawaiian Camo Shorts

No wax, no canvas, all natural Hawaii style from Paul Smith. “Named Hawaiian Camo, the shorts feature a bunch of tropical flowers and animals also reminiscent of Henri Rosseau’s wild life paintings.” Take a risk and stop looking like the guy next to you. Por Vocacao has them.

All Eyes on A Bear Knows Photos Brendan McWeeney

by Accidental Bear
I spotted Brendan McWeeney bounding over chairs and crawling to the floor to capture the best moments of Bob Mould’s performance at Swedish Music Hall on Market Street, SF. Later to find to out that I have admired his photographs before as they appeared on friends of a friend of a friend of a friends Facebook page, you get it. Who needs the CIA anymore I tracked him down via the internet and pleased to find a sweet collection of his work ranging from architecture, landscapes, sports, travel and live music.  I personally feel like he rocks, no  pun intended, at grabbing just the right moments at live music shows and the results are evident.

I asked him what his dream gig would be. Brendan say’s  “As far as a dream gig goes. I’m not 100% sure what that would be. This year it’s to shoot a large festival, I don’t know what my goal will be next year. Ultimately the goal is to be published in a national news outlet, either some big rock or hip hop or general music magazine or blog. I know that’s a ways off though.” I say dream big, big boy (FYI, Brendan is a big hunk of burning Ginger love = side note). I have been around the block enough to notice when a photographer has an eye for “the”  shot, and Brendan is a natural. Looking forward to seeing more of his work in the future. Become a fan of his on Facebook and keep up on his current projects and be sure to √ i like. From Brendan to you, Bear hugs!

Take a peek at the goods.

BIO:

My passion for photography began in high school. It is there I learned how to shoot and develop b&w film. It is also where I learned to truly “make” a photograph. To this day, I get a rush from freezing a moment in time and sharing my view of the world with others.

My 13 year career in Visual Design has honed my eye for composition, as well as capturing the personality of a subject and conveying the emotion of a scene.

As a photographer I am as comfortable in the field as I am in my studio. I have the experience and approachable professionalism that enable me to capture just the right images for myself and my clients

Rude Leather Gay, Bullies Dad and his 10 yr old

by Accidental Bear

When does someones personal freedom and amendment rights cross the line of common decency? This is not a gay or straight issues but I know for a fact that many gay men in SF feel as if certain moral or ethical rules do not apply to them because this is “their gay” town. I think it just boils down to the leather queen being tacky and rude by the sounds of it. I’m curious how  this will all unfold. – AB

Condo Owner’s Leather Sex Dilemma

By Advocate.com Editors

LEATHER BIKER X390 (PHOTOS) | ADVOCATE.COM

A new condo owner in the Glen Park neighborhood of San Francisco is in a bind — he sunk all of his money into a place for himself and his 10-year-old son. But when he went to remove the carpeting, his downstairs neighbor informed him that he enjoys “leather sex” and that it would be audible in the upstairs bedrooms without an effective sound barrier.

“He’s entitled to his life,” Jack Hagerty told the San Francisco Chronicle. “I just wish he’d told me sooner.” READ MORE
