Ahead of TCU-West Virginia football game tonight, one banner goes too far

The TCU Horned Frogs face off tonight against the West Virginia Mountaineers.

Unfortunately, some fans took the football game as an opportunity to advertise their homophobia.

Tyler Heston, a first year divinity student at Brite Divinity School who is also gay, tweeted the photo below. The banner in front of the home near the university’s campus reads “TONIGHT’S SHOWING: BROKEBACK MOUNTAINEERS.” (Wait a minute for the tweet to load.)

The banner refers to the 1997 novel and 2005 movie Brokeback Mountain about the fragile emotional and sexual relationship between two men.
