Peter Boag’s research and writing has helped explode the long-held popular belief that queer people have either not existed, or were not much tolerated in rural areas, especially in the mythic space of the “Old West.”

In this presentation, he shares his thoughts on the historical origins of this misplaced conviction and the stories of varied queer people who appeared in unexpected rural places in the early Pacific Northwest.
