An interesting theme for sure. To me, the ending was unrewarding. There are a ton of typos.

Quoted Text
He ties the animal's reins to a hitching post. He enters
slowly enters the saloon.

To many enters

Quoted Text
He's steps up to the bar.

He - not He's

Quoted Text
His eyes catch the attention of several men at a poker table -
all of him try to cop a feel of one the WAITRESSES

all of him - or them?

Quoted Text
Listen Delroy, lets' keep playin',
The cards are gettin' cold.

Should be:
Listen, Delroy. Lets' keep playin',
The cards are gettin' cold.

Quoted Text
Wow. I ain't ever heard of... I

My - not ny

Something is missing - left what?

He stops in front of the salon. He dismounts from his horse.

Hi Richard,

This is entertaining but its ending falls flat. I like the banter between the man and the characters. I like the Man, he's cool and tough. You've portrayed him well. I liked the scene with the poker players getting what they deserve.

"An openly gay sheriff in the old west must endure a shocked town folk, a corrupt Mayor and a wealthy land baron intent on ridding himself of the newly elected sheriff."

Unfortunately your logline is way off.... we don't see any shocked town folk, the 2 people that do find out he's gay are okay with it. The corrupt mayor? not a huge indication he's corrupt, and who is the wealthy land baron intent on ridding himself of the Man?

It just needs a good ending, at the moment it's about a guy who comes to town, shows a bunch of assholes a thing or to, comes out to the waitress, gets noticed by the major, offered a job, offers the guy he has an attraction to a job, he takes it and thats it...

You've done a good job with the character, just need to build on the story.....

Keep at it!

"Turn that off, our friend has just been killed in a fatal sunlight accident!"....
