Stripped down and covered in honey for
the cover of New York City's Next magazine,
the stars of the film BearCity spoof the September cover of
Rolling Stone, which featured leading stars of the HBO vampire
drama True Blue in the raw and splattered in blood.
In its cover, the gay weekly posed Joe
Conti sandwiched between co-stars Gerald McCullouch and Stephen
Guarino and replaced honey for blood.
The movie begins a one-week engagement
at Quad Cinemas in Manhattan on Friday. Its DVD release, originally
slated for Friday, has been pushed back to November 16.
In reviewing the film, On
called the film “a sweet and comic romp that is sure to delight
furry and hairless alike.”
In the film, svelte and hairless Tyler
(played by Conti) escapes his twink-filled world to delve deep into
New York's bear scene where he meets the man he's been dreaming of in
playbear Roger, played by McCullouch (CSI: New York). Tyler
plots to win over Roger during the three-day party called BearCity.
