Newsflash: There is no Brokeback Mountain here!
We've got the Rockies, and we're not far from various parts of the West that are often sought after.
Did you notice, there is no Brokeback Mountain on that list? Because it doesn't exist.
I think plenty of people know this, but it's funny to see the paranoid rednecks worried that we're going to have a huge influx of gay men coming to Wyoming looking for gay Cowboys. Everywhere you go, you hear "Jeez I hope them queers don't come to Wyoming looking for a piece of ass."
Like gay men aren't known for meticulous planning and would have looked it up on MapQuest or some other travel planning web site before just showing up in Wyoming.
So yes, as many people from the East and West Coasts that have moved here, we still have some old fashioned rednecks worried about homosexuals.
Besides, one would think that most of the attraction would be the stud bikers in leather over at Sturgis in August, right?
