Mr Wright is a fourth-generation cattle farmer based at Woodstock, near Cowra, in New South Wales’ central west. “I wouldn’t call Cowra the gay centre of New South Wales,” he laughed. “But there certainly are other gay people around the town.” Mr Wright said that after coming out, he would frequently visit Sydney to find kindred spirits.
