Bryan's pic

Hi I'm beardance,

AKA Bryan D. Spellman. I last updated this site on December 13th, 2000, when I moved to this new URL. In the spirit of the holidays, I wish you a Merry Christmas, and invite you to read about my own year 2000 by clicking here. My Christmas 99 letter has lots of good pics of fun things and places I visited last year. To read it, click here. My Christmas 98 letter is still available, if you're into things like that. To read it, click here.

I signed up on 12/29/97 19:31:48, and keep adding things and changing other things, so feel free to come on back anytime and see what's new. I'm following the lesson plans in Teach Yourself HTML in 24 Hours, and am using Speedy's Home Page as my model, so check it out to see what I've learned. BTW, most of the pics below the bar are links to other pages or sites. Be sure to check out everything that interests you. There's a lot more here than meets the eye!

My interests are:

Gary, Romance (Gary's very romantic), outdoor activities (with Gary--you should see that southern boy on skis!), bears (the human kind--like Gary), weaving, theatre, music, cars, MinPins (See Speedy's homepage if you don't know what a MinPin is) and did I mention, Gary? For a more detailed introduction to me and my interests, click here to see my "Country-Western Page" (well, after all, it's got pictures of my dog, my boat and my truck!). If you'd like to read a more detailed history of the gay movement in Montana (and how I was part of that), click here. I wrote this history for Outspoken, Western Montana's GLBT Newspaper. To get to the current e-issue of Outspoken, click here.

The Western Montana Gay and Lesbian Community Center.

Click on the Gay Montana flag to visit the Center's web site which has many links to other areas and organizations of interest to gay people living in or visiting Western Montana.

One of the great things

going for the gay community in Montana is the Montana Gay Men's Task Force, P.O. Box 1253, Billings MT 59103. Check out their site by clicking on this icon: .

Every year a group

of us canoe the Missouri River Breaks. This great trip covers 50 miles of river in 4 days, with plenty of time for hiking, playing in the water, Trivial Pursuit, or whatever suits our fancy. I've included some photos from the 1997 trip for your enjoyment. Drop me a note if you want more info, or write to the outfitter directly, Don Sorenson at

To learn more

about my best friend and constant companion, one of three males who consistently shares my bed, click on the dog. Actually there are three dogs who share our lives and bed, but the girl has been too shy to put her page up yet. It's coming though. Watch for further developments. BTW, her name is Faylene Grace, and she's adorable (a black and tan MinPin). To learn about the other male who consistently shares my bed and my life, I guess you'll have to ask him yourself, since I haven't been able to convince him to stop puttering and put his web site on-line. (Hint--his name's Gary, and he's a well-known on-line bear!)

If you don't know

anything about Montana, you should check out the state's Home Page And if you'd like to look at a neat map of the state, thanks to the Montana Department of Transportation, click here. Finally, the Beardance's cave is in Montana's second largest community, Missoula, which is in the western part of the state, about mid way between north and south, or in the eye socket if you see Montana's western border as a human profile.
