Teen gay rodeo cowboy ignores death threats, says “I'll never be silenced'

Teen gay rodeo cowboy ignores death threats, says “I'll never be silenced'
- An 18-year-old gay rodeo cowboy from rural Australia has a message for the hate he has received for participating in his sport: “The gay cowboy will never be silenced.”
Josh Goyne, a bullrider from Australia’s Central Coast, has been vilified in online rodeo forums from people trying to stop him from competing in rodeos. The hate has included death threats.
“Today I was asked if I thought it was good that gays died of AIDS, and then the guy said he wished it was 1850 so he could shoot me for being a fag,” Goyne said in a video he posted to Facebook last month.
