Brokeback's shirts at Autry National Center

"Those two emblematic shirts worn by Ledger and Gyllenhaal that played such a pivotal role in the film are currently on display in the Autry National Center museum's Imagination Gallery, which is devoted to the western in popular culture.
Local collector Tom Gregory purchased the shirts three years ago in an EBay auction for charity for $101,000. He merely hung the shirts on the wall in his office until author Gregory Hinton called him last New Year's Eve."The shirts hold deep meaning for so many, especially those 50 and older who could relate to the anguish and isolation of Ennis," said Gregory, who thinks the display of the "Brokeback Mountain" shirts at the Autry underscores the need for gay men and women who leave rural communities to reclaim their heritage".
