While some straight men would shy away from fag rag’s, Smith seems excited. In a chat with David Letterman, Smith said:
Within that community there are bears – guys who look like me – and dudes who are really into them, who are called cubs. And, apparently, I’m the focus of a lot of admiration in this community. I’d be considered something of a coup, a score for a cub – the ultimate bear to get.
“And they called and said, ‘Do you want to be on the cover of a magazine?’ I was like, ‘Are you telling me there’s someone out there who sexualizes me? I’ll be on that magazine, totally.’
Smith, we’ve been sexualizing you for years!
