Linda and i took the BART train back home last night.

There was a guy across the aisle from us wearing a Brokeback Mountain t-shirt.

As he was exiting the train, I told him i really liked his shirt.

I had a couple of promo copies of the book, and I offered him one.

He turned it down.

He smiled, said thank you, but he already has the book and it's excellent  :)

City and Out West 2011 present Beyond Brokeback: A Staged Reading with Music

The City through its Arts & Cultural Affairs Commission, Lesbian and Gay Advisory Board and Out West 2011 will present an expanded version of Beyond Brokeback: A Staged Reading with Music with a staged reading of messages, essays, poetry, and music inspired by the landmark film Brokeback Mountain as part of the City of West Hollywood’s annual One City/One Pride Culture Series. The event which will be held on Saturday, June 25, 2011 at 7 p.m. in Fiesta Hall at Plummer Park, 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard is free. The public is welcome, and reservations are not required. For more information visit www.weho.org/pride 

Beyond Brokeback: A Staged Reading with Music was first developed and performed at the Autry National Center last December as part of its acclaimed “Out West at the Autry” series and in commemoration of the 5th Anniversary of Brokeback Mountain. Beyond Brokeback: A Staged Reading with Music was most recently performed by the Theatre and Dance Department of the University of Wyoming in Laramie for the Shepard Symposium on Social Justice in April and is scheduled to be presented by Chicago’s Roosevelt University in its 3,700 seat historic Auditorium Theatre on Sunday, November 13, 2011 directed by David Zak. Dates with other national venues are currently in negotiation.
