MTV's 'True Life' To Feature Gay Bears And 'Chubby Chasers'

Gay men are still stereotyped in mainstream media as being gym bunnies -- and judging by the results of a recent British poll, nearly half would be willing to make significant sacrifices in pursuit of the perfect body.

Now, MTV is turning the spotlight onto a somewhat less-heralded subset of the community: gay bears and their self-proclaimed "chubby chaser" admirers.

The preview clip features 26-year-Justin, who says, "I'm not attracted to muscle, I'm attracted to mass." Though Justin fears his conservative parents dismiss his relationship with boyfriend Josh as merely a fetish, he goes on to note, "When I'm with a bear, I feel safe because of his size. I like feeling dwarfed by this individual –- a protector almost."

Check out the trailer for episode, set to air Jan. 11.
