If Brokeback Mountain taught us anything, it's that gay guys sure do love the cowboy stuff. So tonight the homo hoofers from the Cleveland City Country Dancers will kick up their spurs to show folks that square dancing isn't just for Grandma anymore. "It's funky, fun, and different," says Mike Krupar, the club's secretary. "If you're not too confident about getting on the dance floor, it's a great way to get into fast dancing."
Tonight, the 16-year-old group invites prospective dancers to its annual potluck picnic, where novices can bring a side dish and learn basic dance moves. "I like the whole idea of becoming comfortable with male-male dancing," says Krupar. "It's a good way to get involved in the community when you're just coming out of the closet."
Wed., Sept. 6, 6:30 p.m.
