Brokeback in Argentina: Los Gauchos Gay

Now that Brokeback Mountain is hitting theatres in Latin America (where it's been dubbed "Secretos de la Montaña" or "Secrets of the Mountain," some interesting reflections have started to be explored in media about machismo, masculinity and sexuality.

This weekend, Revista Veintitres in Argentina takes a look at "Los Gauchos Gay" in a front page story promising a look at homosexuality among the rural Gaucho cowboys of Argentina. Aparently the article focuses on the existance of a gay bar in the rural district of Suipacha and its clientele. Unfortunately, that's as much details as I have about the article as access to website content is available by subscription only.
