Well small town don't like it when somebody falls between sexes

I am gone until March 7, looking for a cowboy Willie talks about. Brokeback Mountain and Willie Nelson do it all for us...

There’s many a strange impulse out on the plains of West Texas;
There’s many a young boy who feels things he don’t comprehend.
Well small town don't like it when somebody falls between sexes,
No, small town don't like it when a cowboy has feelings for men.

Well I believe in my soul that inside every man there’s a feminine,
And inside every lady there’s a deep manly voice loud and clear.
Well, a cowboy may brag about things that he does with his women,
But the ones who brag loudest are the ones that are most likely queer.

Cowboys are frequently secretly fond of each other — What did you think those saddles and boots was about?
There’s many a cowboy who don’t understand the way that he feels towards his brother,
Inside every cowboy there's a lady who'd love to slip out. - The lyrics are here.

You just have to go to this video, Willie Nelson sings to me. He sings to all of us with this tune and though I always liked Willie, I sure as heck am a bigger fan today for singing this tune.

But the song and video is here . Thanks to Chimera's Cavern for this!


Gay Grandparents

Gay Grandparents...

I am one 3 times over now. I received this story from the Gay Seniors, Canada mailing list...

"About 10 years later, I made a new gay friend and it turned out that she was a grandma a few times over. However, her son wouldn’t let his kids near their Grandmother because she was queer. She eventually moved across the country to be with a lover. I’ve wondered if, before she died of cancer a few years later, her son let the grandkids meet her."

"I suppose it’s always been hard to be a gay grandma, but back in the days of the universal closet, no one talked about it. The family knew only that Grandma had a "friend" who was always invited for the holidays. Maybe the grandkids called her Auntie Jo and the kids described her as a horse-riding kind of woman and maybe the grandkids loved her and her horses and when Auntie Jo moved in with Grandma, the kids were just relieved to have someone watching out for mom, especially someone as handy as Jo was, fixing Grandma’s roof or toilet and teaching the grandkids to ride." -
