The Wild West used to trade on its rugged masculinity. These were the brave and heroic men of the pioneering generation. But new research shows the story is a bit more complicated. The man who came to embody the West, Buffalo Bill Cody, and export it around the world had gay and lesbian friends. Historian Gregory Hinton will be lecturing on those previously unknown connections at the Clark County Library and he joins us to talk about his new research.
