Many hundreds, even thousands, of gay and lesbian Americans may be suffering from emotional circumstances similar to those portrayed in the movie “Brokeback Mountain.” Dale Bullock, gay relationship/gay marriage expert, suggests that a "Brokeback Mountain Syndrome" may afflict many people who choose to forge heterosexual relationships that belie their innate homosexual natures. Bullock is available for interview to define this problem, provide anecdotal evidence of how it has evolved over the years and sensible advice on how to successfully pursue the love of one's choice within today’s society.

With office water coolers bubbling over with talk of “Brokeback Mountain’s” realistic depiction of sexual honesty and heartbreak, nationally-recognized gay relationship/gay marriage expert Dale Bullock suggests that the emotional crisis that is core to the plot may afflict thousands of Americans who choose to forge heterosexual relationships that belie their innate homosexual natures.

Could There Be a “Brokeback Mountain Syndrome?”

The difficulty that arises between the two main characters in the film is not unusual in the gay and lesbian world. This “Brokeback Mountain Syndrome” occurs when someone is compelled by their own fears (such as “Brokeback’s” Ennis Del Mar) or by the pressures of society (“Brokeback’s” Jack Twist) to sublimate their same-gender feelings, often re-directing them unsuccessfully to members of the opposite sex.

The result is personal unhappiness and depression that undermines their attempts to form long-term loving relationships. This adversely affects not only them, but the people closest to them, such as spouses and children.

In his years of bringing gay and lesbian couples together, Bullock has seen – again and again – the emotionally-destructive results of submerging or misdirecting homosexual feelings, preventing gays and lesbians from forging successful relationships.
