A tough Wyoming cowboy who just happens to like blouses
Sissy Goodwin isn’t gay; he’s been married for 45 years and has two adult children. As a young man, he was a rodeo cowboy who rode bulls bareback, a free spirit who never shied away from a fistfight. The former aircraft mechanic loves to drink beer, play golf, throw steaks on the grill.
What sets him apart, he says, is what he calls gender independence: He just likes to do most things in a dress.
A resilient guy living it out in Wyoming, a state he refers to as “the Mississippi of the West” for its disposition toward him, Goodwin has been beaten, arrested and glared at for years - but he continues his defiant dressing habits to this day.

I KNOW THIS MAN.
I KNOW HIM.
I MET HIM WHEN I WAS WORKING ON THE REZ IN SOUTH DAKOTA.
HE IS HONESTLY ONE OF THE MOST FANTASTIC, SUPER-NICE MEN I HAVE EVER MET. He went to WORKSITES in a skirt. And he gave no fucks.
