Out West at Clark County Library
Out West at Clark County Library

AIR DATE: October 25, 2011

If you think there were no gay cowboys until Annie Prouix dreamed them up in "Brokeback Mountain," think again. There have been gay and transgender people in the West since its last century. An exhibit that began at the Autry National Center will make some visits over the next year to Clark County Library. Festivities begin this weekend with the launch of Patricia Nell Warren's latest book "My West," which has examples of her writing about the frontier over the last six decades.
