From Out Magazine’s profile article of Brandon and Benjamin, a gay couple from Montana:
The two met a little over a year ago, and now live together in Washington State, but they go back to visit Brandon’s family in Montana as often as they can. Despite the region’s general conservatism — Brandon says his father is “somewhat of a self-proclaimed redneck” — they’ve experienced incredible support.
“[My dad] was the person I was most nervous to tell [that I was gay], but [he] wound up being the easiest,” Brandon says. “His response was, ‘I don’t give a shit. You’re the same person. Just try and find someone who likes to hunt.’ And Ben loves to hunt, so no problems there.”
And that’s what it’s about folks, share interests; whether you’re hunting for a fabulously tailored Tom Ford outfit to pair with your Whitney sunglasses or you’re on the turkey hunt with your Winchester and Long Beard XRs.
