I have not seen Small Town Gay Bar (also by Ingram), but I will look for it now. I enjoyed Bear Nation, Ingram’s SXSW festival entry, and feel that though it is not perfect, there is something there that everyone can appreciate. The focus presented is a sub-culture (bears) within a sub-culture (homosexual men). Unlike “twinks,” bears do not fit common gay stereotypes because they are usually larger, occasionally hairier, and always more masculine. It is a branch of the lifestyle that has not been officially addressed before, and Ingram does it in style.
