Asking Bear

Why We Read Ask Bear

MattAsk Bear is back after a long hiatus! A self-described fellow 'busybody know-it-all,' Bergman puts his awesome power to use not only with thoughtful essays tackling complex questions around gender identity and sexuality, but he also has been known to volunteer his time on Yik Yak to answer questions for teens and young twenty somethings who may otherwise be in dangerous LGBTQIA-phobic environments. Ask Bear is doing tremendously important work destigmatizing and supporting the queer community and their experiences—and advice-giving is just one slice of that activist pie. Check out S. Bear Bergman's homepage to learn about their multiple efforts in support of the community.
