HOWDY, LIFE PARDNER

PHOTO 'MOUNTAIN' MEN: Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal star in "Brokeback Mountain."

NY Post, January 22, 2006 -- Gay cowboys are coming out of the corral in droves since the release of the controversial film "Brokeback

Mountain," People magazine reports this week.

"Sure, it's hard being in a place with so few people who are gay," said Wyoming cowboy Ben Clark, 42. "It used to anger and depress me. Now I just understand it as a fact of life."

The magazine, on stands tomorrow, says the Golden Globe-winning movie has prompted many to declare their sexual orientation - and spawned a forum for gays and lesbians to be held in Jackson Hole, Wyo., on Dec. 9.

"People who are interested in the movie will see it; people who aren't, won't," said Guy Padget, 28, a gay councilman in Casper,Wyo.

Oklahoma rancher Sam Beaumont said he kept his 25-year relationship with Earl Meadow, a comptroller for a manufacturing firm, a relative secret from others near their ranch in Bristow.

"We loved each other," Beaumont said of Meadow, who died of cancer in 2000. "We had a better relationship than most straight couples."

Beaumont told the magazine that there are different types of gays and lesbians throughout the countryside.

"You'll have ranchers who are quiet about it," he said.

"Then you've got the ones that claim they're straight but have sex with men. And when they come home at night and their wives ask if they've been with a woman, well, they don't have to lie."

Jackson Hole plumber Jade Beus, 31, had his heart broken by a man in Soda Springs, Idaho, who, like Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in the movie, denied his sexuality and married a woman.

"It was painful, the main reason I moved to Jackson Hole," Beus said. "I couldn't stand to see them together.

I know the question on everyone's mind is, "Will they be serving pudding?"

I didn't know Wyoming had a Gay Council.

Yes, more wishful thinking of the Leftist in the media.

I am sure this particular "fad" will last for a few more years, thanks to the punks in film and media.

ETA: my spelling suxor.

Remember 10% of all creatures on Earth are gay. If 10% of chimps are gay, so then must be 10% of cowboys. Rosie said it, it must be truth.

The gay boys do be likin' the chaps.

Gay Cowbowys are nothing new,

"Like a Rhinestone Cowboy................"

YMCA anyone?

Heck just yesterday a member of this board invited me to go with him to a gay bar in Arizona in March.

BM is just a way for fags in Hollywood to justify and mainstream their lifestyle to flyover country. I will not pay to see it.

Nothing strikes fear into the heart of these arfcommers like 'teh ghey'.

Whats next? Gay Native Hawaiians?

Does anyone realize how few actual cowboys there are in this country? 99% of the people you see in cowboy hats driving diesel ford trucks with steel grill guards are NOT cowboys. They're posers who think the "cowboy culture" is cool. They think that shelling out bucks for outfits and vehicles with no actual utility for them makes them macho. The poorer variety can be seen leaving their gasoline engine F-150s running when they run in the store for a pack of marlboros.

Hollywood isn't basing this gay cowboy crap on reality. They're twisting the popularly held notions to fit their own.

Gay cowboys can't be coming out of the corralls in droves... because there aren't enough cowboys to be considered a "drove" in the first place.

Wasn't one of the Village Persons a cowboy?


Is Wyoming becoming a gay stronghold or what? Wasn't that murder story where they left the diverse gay guy beat to death on the barbed wire fence in Wyoming also?

I wonder if 10% of the Dallas Cowboys are gay?

Any of the Youngsters around here remember "Midnight Cowboy"?

"Cowboy up"

"Save a horse, ride a cowboy"

Lots of repressed homosexuality in that crowd. Hell the belt buckles alone scream "Gay!"

Sounds more like they are flocking to Jackson's hole.

I take it that they're coming out of the corral because the horse done busted their colons?
