Montana describes his artistry as “a whole is an array of visual art installations, prop-based choreography, set design, costume design, transformation of atmosphere, and innovative movement, concepts, and ideas.”
For the live art installation, Montana and Burke built a huge, life-sized ‘Barbie’ box in retro blue hues. The creatives then assembled a collection of all the accessories a ‘Super Gay Barbie’ would need including dumbbells, backpack, dildo, cell phone (complete with Grindr), wig, sunglasses, fan, bling, jungle jumper, and more.
And what ‘Super Gay’ would be complete without some subtle shade? So Montana threw in a passport and airline ticket so ‘Johnny Powerbottom’ can jet off to – where else? – Puerto Vallarta!
The woofy Philadelphia-based artist then posed inside the box clad in a ‘Super Gay’ thong and pink high heels.
In a Facebook post, Montana included a short video showing the construction of the art piece. All in all, we were pretty impressed.
But this project is just a single facet of Montana’s multiverse of talent.
Perusing his Instagram, the gifted fur ball shows off several projects (and lewks) for his social media followers.
Here’s just a sample of the marvelous Montana. Definitely click that ‘Follow’ button below.
• Bear World Magazine: During a time when the Black Lives Matter movement has rightfully taken up space on our news feeds, a conversation has opened up again in Bear spaces about the lack of diversity and inclusion, and the silence of White gays when it comes to the lives of Black people and People of Color. But, it’s a conversation that many White Bears still seem to not want to have.
• Local10: In early April, openly gay Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy Shannon Bennett was the first South Florida first responder to be killed by COVID-19. His family was crushed by the loss.

The couple insists they were “victims” of threatening trespassers who entered a gated community. Nothing says ‘tough’ as much as a pink polo shirt tucked into a pair of khakis, no?
• AOL: Remembering back to 1993 when Mattel released ‘Earring Magic Ken,’ the accidentally gay version of Barbie’s bf that was just about every ’90s gay stereotype in a chiseled hunk of plastic.

The new Moschino Barbie is a huge hit (currently sold-out!), and its commercial is breaking boundaries by featuring a young boy in it.
“Moschino Barbie is so fierce!” the boy screams as he and two female friends laud the doll, done up in designer Jeremy Scott’s sleek glamour. Barbie’s cellphone goes off and the male child says, “It’s for you, Moschino Barbie,” before winking at the camera. Watch the ad below.
