onvergence. You hear the
word thrown about from
time to time, but rarely does it
hit you so clearly as it does in
the middle of Chicago in May.
When Bear Pride and Interna-
tional Mister Leather descend
on this progressive city, you
can hardly tell where the
bears end and the leather
begins!
This summer, BearParty
Magazine is celebrating this
wonderful crossover between
the thriving Leather Commu-
nity and the growing Bear
Community. In addition to
photo galleries from our
release parties for the premiere issue of
BearParty Magazine, Ken Slater has put
together a montage of hot bears we ran
into at IML this year. The heady scent of
freshly spit-shined IML leather is still
wafting through our studio, thanks in part
to the nice folks at Acme Toy Company in
Chicago, who sent us some samples of
their ne leather oils, soaps, candles, and
incense. (I cant begin to describe what
we got from the folks at the Aneros booth,
but it made for a charming memento!)
Weve also got a very hot photo gallery
from Raging Stallion Studios featuring one
of the most famous men to challenge
classic denitions of both bear and porn
star, Franois Sagat. Is the choice contro-
versial for a bear magazine? Maybe a little,
but how can you ask us to ignore a furry
chest like that in black leather--especially
considering the way hes beefed up lately?
Dont forget to check out
some of the great mer-
chants we met at IML in
our new Classied Ad
Section. Show them how
much you appreciate their
acknowledgement of the
bear community. Woof!

ohn Asheld is a talented bear whos
getting a lot of attention these days for
his original musical style and his powerful
stage presence. Asheld sings lead and
writes his own pop-inspired songs for the
award-winning band The Bobbleheads. We
sat down with him to nd out more about
his inspirations and his plans.
BearParty Magazine: Youve been getting a
lot of positive reviews for your music.
John Ashfeld: Weve been pretty
lucky. Weve been on a lot of web-
sites that do reviews. There are a
couple college stations that will play
my CDs when they come out, and
some DJs who like us. Ive gotten lots
of airplay in Portugal and Spain. They
like power pop over there; that
Beatle-esque squeeze kind of rock.
BP: Do you consider yourself and your
music part of the bear community?
JA: I suppose so. Certainly a lot of
people that listen to it are bears.
A lot of my friends are bears, and
Im part of the community.

BP: Do you consider yourself and your
music part of the bear community?
JA: I suppose so. Certainly a lot of
people that listen to it are bears.
A lot of my friends are bears, and
Im part of the community.
BP: Are you partnered?
JA: Yes, Greg is my partner.
Weve been together since 1999.
He does all my album covers and
the website, and he makes all the
T-shirts and sells them. Hes
really the whole record company.
He does all of the business stuff.
BP: Is the business going well?
JA: Well, you know, its fun and
everything, but music really doesnt
pay. Its really a fun thing to do and I
love it, but its certainly not going to
supplant teaching music as my day
job, unless something radically wacky
happens. But Im past having those
American Idol fantasies, or hoping to
have some huge hit record. Theres
not a lot of demand for chubby rock
people singing happy pop songs.
People buy it, and thats cool and
gratifying. I get to do shows, and
people enjoy it. Its a lot of fun. I do
the music because I love it.
BP: What is your website?
JA: www.JohnAshfeldMusic.com
is the most up to date right now, and
www.TheBobbleheads.com should
be up this summer.
BP: I saw you perform last year at The
Eagle in San Francisco, and you really
commanded the stage.

JA: Its fun being up on stage, and its
really cool to make all that noise.
BP: And its good noise, too.
JA: I always wanted to do that. In
high school I was in musicals and
plays, and since I was a kid I would
always see the Monkees and the
Partridge Family and think that
looked like so much fun. Especially
when youre on stage with good
people.
BP: Is everyone in The Bobbleheads gay?
JA: No, and theres not any gay
hang-up, either. Phil, the drummer in
the BobbleHeads, is straight. A lot of
people want him to be gay, but he
isnt. But hell irt to sell a sell a CD
or a T-shirt, so he has no problem
with that, which is cool.
BP: Didnt you win an award recently?
JA: The Bobbleheads won an Out
Music Award from OutMusic.com. It
was cool to get an award, but we
couldnt go to Chicago and play,
because at the time they didnt even
have the money to y us out to play
for free. Plus we all have day jobs,
and we cant just take off a week to
come and do a show, as much as I
wish I could have.
BP: Are you involved with Bearapalooza?
JA: Freddie Freeman runs that. We
havent been able to get it together
for the Bobbleheads to go and do it.
But it would be awesome.
BP: It seems as if theres this whole com-
munity of bear musicians out there now.
JA: Its always nice to have people
interested in you for whatever
reason, but you want it to be musi-
cally really good frst. At the same
time, if somebody likes me because
Im big, Im ok with that. Tickets are
ten dollars. (laughs)
BP: So you work it too. Thats nice.
JA: Well you gotta do what you gotta
do to get more people to come out to
the show. Hopefully after a while
they get over whatever it was and
enjoy the music.
BP: And when will we see you on MTV?
JA: Do they play bands anymore on
MTV? (laughs) If I was 20 I might
still have a vision of making it in the
music industry. I think now youre
more likely to see our videos on
YouTube or on our website.

Cologne could be considered the Bear
Capital of Germany, with the largest bear
gathering in Europe happening every
November to elect the new Mr. Bear
Germany, and sponsored by the Bears of
Cologne. They also offer a summer edition
that is typically a long weekend in May -
with a river cruise and BBQ included. If
you plan on coming to mingle with the
3000+ European Bears in November, go
online and buy your tickets early - a lot of
the venues are capacity controlled and do
sell out well before the event.
(www.bearparty.de)
For the average American tourist, there are
a few things to be aware of when you land
in Cologne, or Kln. The primary thing to
know is that Beer is a cultural icon here!
Each city or region in Germany brews its
own type or style of beer and it is almost
sacrilegious to order something else when
you are in the area. If you want to blend
in with the local bears in Cologne, order a
Klsch (pronounced kurlsh). By govern-
ment order, no brewery outside the greater
Cologne area can brew Klsch.
Klsch is a style of beer created by several
local breweries, each with its own distinc-
tive avorings. One brand, Dom, is even
named after the most signicant landmark
of Cologne. Frh, Gaffel, and Reissdorf
round out the list of the biggest-selling
brands. Klsch is a pale light beer that is
top-fermented, ltered, and hop-accented.
Some have called it the ale that wants to
be a lager. A tall, thin 0.2 liter glass is the
traditional way to serve it, and approxi-
mately 50% of all Klsch is sold on
draught, which is about double that of any
other beer in Germany.
There is no Happy Hour in Germany to
speak of; the bars generally open at 8:00
p.m. and stay open late as long as there

are customers still drinking. Credit cards
are not generally accepted at pubs and
small eateries, so be prepared to pay with
cash. Germans are still allowed to smoke
in public places, so the bars get very
smoky and crowded on the weekends, and
also during holidays and festivals (of which
there are plenty!). Germans love to drink
and sing, especially around Karneval, a
weeklong celebration of debauchery.
Almost all the bars play the same favorite
tunes, so youll quickly be able to sing
along phonetically, even though you might
not understand all the words. One of the
top three favorites is a song about a man
who discovers three hairs on his chest and
now declares himself a bear.
Some of the bars have dark rooms where
you are responsible for setting your own
limits, but please play safe, gentlemen!
And although Germany is a country where
behaving properly is a national passtime,
you should always have a safe place for
your wallet, mobile phone, and passport,
especially in any dark rooms.
The most well-known bear bar in Cologne
is COX bar, owned and operated by a HOT
Croatian-born bear named Darko. The
barmen are friendly and multi-lingual, as
are most of the clientele. The honor
system is observed here, so you can order
drinks all night and you dont have to pay
until you want to leave. Tipping is
customary here, but in small increments.
Just a few coins or a Euro would sufce for
the evenings drinks - saving a ton of
money over the typical American method
of tipping well and paying for each round
immediately. When its warm enough, lots
of bears can be found on the broad
sidewalk in front of the bar. But watching
the straight passers-by work their way
through the rough and hairy crowd can be
an entertaining experience unto itself!
(www.cox-cologne.de)
Close by is the ZIPPS bar. This was the
original bear bar in Cologne. It now caters
to a more mixed but manly crowd. This
bar has occasional drink specials, but this
is not typical of bars in Cologne, and they
are often tied to a less crowded weekday.
Should one care to go dancing after a few
cocktails or Klsch, around the next corner
from ZIPPS you will nd CHAINS, with a
basement dance oor and large dark room
area upstairs. For the dark room experi-
ence without the dance oor, you can try
Hands, across the broad street from COX.
When you enter, you get a small card on
which the bartenders will record your drink
consumption. There is a minimum charge
when you leave - so go ahead and have a
drink, because youll be paying upon exit

1933 was one hell of a
year in the U. S. of A. It
was the rst year of
Franklin Roosevelts
presidency, the fourth
year of the Great
Depression, and most
important of all for bar
patrons everywhere, it
was the year of Repeal,
or the end of Prohibi-
tion. Whatever youre
drinking, lift it high, say
Heres To Repeal! and
drink.
The dark years of
Prohibition (1920-1933)
were sometimes called
the Noble Experiment.
(!) The folks who
pushed the 18th
Amendment through
decided that, since there
were a lot of scumbags
out there getting
shitfaced, the solution to
the countrys problems
was to make alcohol
illegal.
Immediately, a lot of
pencil-dicked under-
world goons in bad suits
started making a fortune
selling bootleg hooch.
These guys loved Prohibition, which made them
rich. They hated Repeal, which took away their
customers. The customers were too busy going
blind and dying from drinking toxic bathtub gin
to comment. It sucked, and not in a good way.
After thirteen bootlegged, blood-soaked,
bullet-punctured years, Congress saw the grim
results of Prohibition and pulled the plug. In
1933, the 21st amendment to the Constitution
was ratied, repealing Prohibition, and totally
kicking the asses of the bootleggers.
Wow, good thing we learned our lesson about
wars on drugs, isnt it?

Long Island Iced Tea was one American
response to Prohibition. Its an alcoholic
beverage disguised as something else. It
doesnt show up a whole lot in post-Repeal
books and magazines until it enjoyed a
comeback in the 1970s. It took that long for
the American public to realize that, besides
getting you anonymously sideways, Long
Island Iced Tea is a complex and refreshing
summer drink for those who want a harder
kick than you can get from a Tom Collins. Be
warned. Its a nighttime beast, its big and its
strong.
The constant mix for Long Island Iced Tea,
the core of the drink, is a blend of equal parts
of four ingredients: tequila, rum, gin, and
vodka. During Prohibition, it was probably a
blend of equal parts of whatever you could
get, but now its these four. You can use
anywhere from half an ounce to an ounce of
each one as long as you keep the amounts
equal. Once you shake your main ingredients
with ice, you add other ingredients as
avorings and serve with a lemon wedge. The
idea is to make something that looks and
smells like a glass of iced tea, so cola is used
a lot, and theres always lemon juice. You
should end up with between ten and 12
ounces. Make it a big glass.
Long Island Iced Tea
1 ounce vodka
1 ounce tequila
1 ounce rum
1 ounce gin
4 ounces cola, OR 2 ounces Earl
Grey tea and 2 ounces cola
1 ounce lemon juice
1 tsp superfne sugar if desired
Shake the spirits and sugar in a shaker half
lled with ice cubes. Strain into a glass of ice,
top with lemon juice and cola. Stir and drink,
taking a very long time to nish it. One guide
suggests taking two days.
God bless America.

eady to party?
Here are some
tips to help you stay
safer on and off the
dance oor.
Besides making sure
you have your wallet,
keys, and breath-
strips, you should
also consider bringing
other supplies such
as condoms and lube
in case you go home
with a hot bear. If
you are planning to
bring that hot bear
home instead,
consider leaving all
your safer sex
supplies handy and
close to your bed so you dont have to
fumble for them later. Having those items
visible will make the whole condom
subject easier to approach if you plan on
fucking.
Going home with a stranger? It doesnt
hurt to ask your trick for an address; that
way, you can text your friends so they
know where you will be. You may also
consider setting up a silent alarm. A
silent alarm is a person who agrees to
receive your phone call at a set time later
that night or the next day. That way you
can exchange sex stories with your friends
and, more importantly, let them know that
you have arrived home safely. After the
festivities are over, dont forget to check
back in with your friends the next day. If
you have arranged a silent alarm, make
sure to call your friends at the time
previously agreed. There is nothing more
embarrassing than a pair of concerned
friends, or worse yet, a pair of police
ofcers, knocking at your tricks door.
Remember that while some party favors
can help you enhance your evenings
overall experience, you should never forget
that they can also lower inhibitions and
create a false sense of security. Those
factors can lead you into less-safe sex
practices, and you may nd yourself
making bad decisions that can potentially
put you at risk for HIV and other sexually
transmitted diseases. Knowing your own
HIV status is as important as knowing your
sexual partners HIV status. Getting tested
for STDs every three to six months is not a
bad idea either. Having an STD can make it
easier for other infections, such as HIV, to
be transferred from another person to you.
Drinking lots of water is a good idea,
especially if you like to dance your ass off
on the dance oor; however, make sure to
alternate water with something else like
Gatorade or sparkling water. Both are high
in sodium and will help you replenish your
electrolytes. Energy drinks should probably
not be used as your only source of uids
while on the dance oor. Caffeine is a
diuretic, meaning it increases urine output.
The combination of uid loss from sweat-
ing and the diuretic properties of caffeine
can leave you very dehydrated.
Mixing energy drinks and alcohol can make
a tasty cocktail but it can also be a
dangerous combination, since it mixes an
upper (caffeine) and a downer
(alcohol). Consuming both at once can
mask how intoxicated you really are and
prevent you from realizing how much
booze you have really drunk. Fatigue is
one way your body tells you that you have
had enough to drink. The stimulant effect
of caffeine can make you think that you
arent impaired. No matter how alert you
may feel, your blood alcohol concentration
is the same as it would be without the
energy drink, and that still means getting a

ticket, a trip to jail, or even worse, getting
into an accident. Keep in mind that both
caffeine and alcohol can dehydrate you.
Dehydration can hinder your bodys ability
to metabolize alcohol and will increase the
toxicity of whatever you are drinking. In
other words: Bad Hangover.
If you decide to indulge in more than
alcohol, or take more than one drug at a
time, make sure whatever substances you
are taking together are not going to
interact badly with each other, or with any
other medications you take. Some drugs,
such as crystal meth and ecstasy, can
impair your bodys ability to absorb HIV
medications.
Got the Tuesday Blues? If you used party
favors such as crystal meth or ecstasy over
the weekend, your brain is probably low on
a chemical called serotonin. Serotonin is a
neurotransmitter in your brain that helps
control your mood. To help combat the
drop in mood, many people report taking
over-the-counter supplements such as
5-HTP and St. Johns Wort, but never take
them with alcohol. In clinical trials, both
supplements have been shown to improve
production of serotonin. Always consult
with your doctor or pharmacist before
taking any new medications or
supplements.
Do you still want to go out and have fun? I
hope so; these are just some pointers to
help you keep safe on and off the dance
oor. So party on, and party smart!

bars that cater to the Dolce & Gabbana
crowd are in another neighborhood. The
venues I have mentioned herein are all
within a few blocks of each other, near the
metro station Heumarkt. The Cologne
metro system, called the U-bahn locally,
is also on the honor system - but please
buy your tickets beforehand or onboard
the streetcars as its a 40 Euro charge if
you get caught without one, and theres
very little sympathy for out-of-town-
ers from the ticket inspectors. These
fellows go by the Ignorance is No Excuse
rule.
Cologne was selected as the host city for
EuroPride 2002, so you can be sure of a
lot of fun and acceptance here. There are
several great restaurants around the
neighborhood, serving both traditional
German and international cuisine. There
are also some very bear-friendly hotels
close by, such as the Maritim and the
Intercontinental. Most of all - enjoy your
stay in the Bear and Beer Capital of
Germany!
