Digitally Altered Image

Josh Goyne, self-titled ‘gay cowboy’ and the face of Stroke Support and Awareness Australia (SSAA), is again soliciting for public donations. QNews previously reported on SSAA’s apparent failure to properly account for charitable donations. We have now updated this article with a look back to the events that allegedly inspired a 2017 viral news story about Goyne. At that time, the ‘gay cowboy’ became a public figure following claims he made about death threats on the competitive bull riding circuit.

Updates at bottom of the article include the truth about the false allegation that a rodeo contractor snapped Goyne’s ankles in 2016 and intended to kill him.

Joshua Goyne, the founder and former Vice-President of SSAA, recently solicited donations for a new cause — a gay rights ‘billaboard’ [sic] on the Hume Highway.

Goyne’s fundraising history

Despite relinquishing SSAA’s registration with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) in November 2020, Goyne continues to promote SSAA as one of Australia’s leading stroke charities.

“We deliver stroke services across Australia, campaign for better stroke care, invest in research and fundraise to expand our reach to as many stroke survivors as possible.”

The only one of those claims that a 2020 QNews investigation could substantiate was that the charity fund-raised.

QNews forwarded the results of our investigation to the ACNC. The commission then requested SSAA answer a number of questions.

SSAA relinquishes registration

On 5 November 2020, SSAA voluntarily relinquished its registration with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).

But on that same morning, Joshua Goyne posted an appeal for donations on one of his Facebook pages.

Goyne has Facebook pages under various names including one Josh Goyne, a second Josh Goyne, plus Josh Fearnley and Jo’shua Scott, in addition to the Gay Cowboy, Down Under’Wear International, Buckin’ Mad Western Wear, Gay Rodeo Australia, SSAA and who knows how many others. He also utilises TikTok and Instagram pages. Goyne appears to curate the content of individual pages to appeal to different audiences.

Following the publication of a QNews article on the relinquishment, Goyne claimed in a video that the ACNC recommended a particular course of action.

“We worked with the ACNC on this, and they said to deregister and re-register with our new board which is what we are doing.”

He said similar in a Facebook post.

ACNC response

QNews contacted the ACNC regarding Goyne’s claims.

A spokesperson for the ACNC replied on 16 November 2020.

QNews: 1/ [Is] phoenixing permissible – voluntarily revoking the registration of a charity in order to immediately re-register with a new board – and with the previous financial history of the charity thereby erased?

ACNC: A charity that had its registration revoked voluntarily can apply for registration again. If, as the same entity with the same ABN, it meets the eligibility requirements and is registered again, its full financial information should be available again on the Charity Register.

There is no requirement that a charity be registered with the ACNC. However, a charity must be registered to be eligible for Commonwealth tax concessions.

The Charity Register shows the voluntary revocation of Strokes Support and Awareness Australia Incorporated took effect on 5 November 2020.

QNews: 2/ [Is] the ACNC working with the former Vice President of Stroke Support and Awareness Australia to resurrect the same entity with a new board.

ACNC: Due to secrecy provisions in the legislation that established the ACNC, we are prevented from commenting on the circumstances of individual charities.

However, the ACNC does not work with anyone to establish an entity. Once we receive an application, we may clarify aspects of it that are unclear or incomplete by communicating with the applicant about the details, but we do not work with anyone to set up an entity. All charity applications must meet the legal requirements to become registered as a charity.

Facebook Ban

On the morning of 18 February 2021, Facebook banned Australian news services from its platform.

That evening, Josh Goyne posted to his Gay Cowboy Facebook page celebrating the deletion of ‘defamatory articles’. (He since deleted that post.)

However, the articles he referenced remained, and remain, accessible on the QNews website.

Within half an hour, Goyne renewed his fund-raising efforts.

He posted an appeal for donations to raise funds for a ‘gay rights billaboard’ [sic] on the Hume Highway.

The billboard Goyne claims he is renting is beside the Money Money Parking Bay on the Hume Highway north-east of Coolac, NSW.

Josh Goyne has insisted in posts and videos that he got a deal on the billboard because he owns the land it is located on.

He does not and never did own the farm.

Goyne’s former partner bought the farm at 7448 Hume Highway on 1 December 2020 with settlement on 11 December 2020. Goyne alleged repeatedly for months before that date and since that he left that partner because of domestic violence and other abuse. On 25 February 2021, Goyne described the man as his ‘violent ex’ in a TikTok video.

Update 17.04.2021

As of 17 April, no evidence has emerged to indicate any progress on the ‘gay rights’ billboard. However, Goyne mounted another fundraiser following an alleged ‘homophobic attack’ on his vehicles.

He then ran yet another claiming, again, he ‘lost everything’ following a robbery at ‘his’ farm. As Goyne attended court within days of the ‘robbery’ in an attempt to reclaim his possessions, it appears he was in fact evicted from his former partner’s property north of Coolac NSW.

(Among Goyne’s alleged stolen possessions — his grandfather’s ashes. Goyne previously claimed in one video that those ashes were scattered on Elephant Rock off Currumbin, and in another video that they were washed away in a February 2020 flood, when he again lost all his possessions, as opposed to the time his warehouse was robbed, or the time his car was firebombed — that’s the Sydney arson attack — not the Tamworth one — and different to the recent tyre-slashing — and not one of his various stolen vehicles — a different vehicle.)

Joshua Goyne 2017-2020

The Gay Cowboy from Go to Woe

Marginalised communities love to see a member triumph over adversity. Such people become community heroes by overcoming prejudice and discrimination to achieve in their chosen field. Joshua Goyne provided the LGBTIQ+ communities with exactly such a story. He went on to raise substantial sums of money on the back of his heroic narrative, presenting himself as the “Gay Rights Cowboy, fighting for country lgbti rights, respect and values!” He even won a 2017 Brisbane Pride award for his supposed good deeds.

However, it now seems the real story involved little bull-riding but an awful lot of bullshit.

In 2017, the ‘gay cowboy’ received worldwide media coverage (including in this publication) after claiming he received death threats on the Australian rodeo circuit. He also alleged he suffered a severe injury after a rodeo contractor rigged his rope. Goyne now says that the contractor, in fact, intended to kill him. QNews spoke to the contractor at the centre of the claims.

Goyne claimed that the death threats resulted from homophobia on the rodeo circuit.

In an article at news.com.au, the ‘teenage farmer’ and ‘competitive bull rider’ said the homophobia, on at least one occasion, extended beyond threats to physical harm.

“Mr Goyne said he had been the victim of a number of homophobic incidents, including at a rodeo where he claimed a contractor rigged his riding ropes causing him to snap his ankles.”

Numerous media outlets took Goyne at his word and published his allegations without any attempt at verification.

On Saturday, 6 March 2021, Goyne expanded on those claims in a video posted to TikTok.

“Could have killed me… and that was his intent.”

Goyne recorded the video as he prepared to attend the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade.

“Five years ago today, I was riding bulls at the Stanthorpe Rodeo when a homophobic contractor could have killed me… and that was his intent.

“He rigged my bull, he rigged my ropes, and he threw the chute when the bull went down after I was told to get off the bull and get a re-ride.

“After this, he told me he didn’t want a fag winning the rodeo and making everyone look bad.”

In comments posted alongside the video, Goyne named Queensland company Hall Rodeo.

The following day, he posted another video. It displayed text over footage of Goyne in the stands at the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade.

“The homophobe that broke my ankle just asked me to call him.

“So I posted his number all over Grindr, escort ads and every spam service possible.”

QNews notes it is a crime in Australia to employ a phone or the internet in a menacing, harassing or offensive way.

'gay cowboy' joshua goyne
Joshua Goyne TikTok 6.03.2021

Jason Hall

QNews contacted Jason Hall of Hall Rodeo, the company Goyne named. Jason Hall is also Chairman of the National Rodeo Association (NRA).

“I remember meeting Josh Goyne at the 2016 Pittsworth Show Rodeo, the night before the Stanthorpe Rodeo. As I normally do at Stanthorpe, I worked as the rodeo announcer and stood near the gates where the bulls are released to call the action. I did not work as a chute boss at that rodeo so therefore was not responsible for either mounting riders or opening gates.

“I remember seeing Josh Goyne mount the bull. It then sat down and Josh hit his lower leg against the chute. Josh dismounted, and the chute boss told him he’d line up another bull. However, Josh went out the back and never returned for his re-ride.”

‘Rigging’ the bull and ropes.

“Neither I nor the chute boss could ‘rig’ the bull. Contractors have no control over the selection of bulls for the riders. Rodeo officials conduct the draws before the event. Chute bosses then instruct riders as to which bull they get on.

“Nor could I or the chute boss ‘rig’ a bull rider’s rope. Riders provide their own rope and place it on the bull. The ropes used in bull riding are loose and designed to drop away from the animal when the rider lets go. My father founded Hall Rodeo in the 1960s, and I have been involved in bull-riding since childhood. I do not recall a single instance of a rope injuring a rider’s ankle.”

(QNews checked the NRA Rulebook, which states, “All stock to be drawn prior to the commencement of the contest.”

We also independently verified with other rodeo associations that it is standard practice for riders to provide their own rope and position it on the bull.)

Homophobia

“I met Josh when a local introduced him as a lad from out of town who wanted to compete in the Junior Bull Ride. I made no comments about his sexuality. No one mentioned he was gay and I had never heard of ‘The Gay Cowboy’. Not that it mattered. There are gay riders on the rodeo circuit. That has never been an issue. I am not homophobic, and would never use homophobic or other slurs against a bull rider or anyone else. I believe in diversity and inclusion. In my day job, I proudly participate in programs and events designed to make our workplace one where everyone belongs.”

(A gay man who travels the Australian rodeo circuit with his male partner told QNews in 2020 that their sexuality was not an issue. He said he never heard of Josh Goyne before the 2017 news articles. No one he knew on the circuit could remember ever meeting Goyne.)

Josh Goyne claimed in a comment posted to TikTok to possess video and eyewitness accounts of the Stanthorpe incident. He did not provide evidence.

However, QNews found a first-hand account posted the day following the incident by a participant.

That version of events matches what Jason Hall previously told us.

An eyewitness account

The person who posted about the incident on 6 March 2016 was, in fact,  ‘gay cowboy’ Josh Goyne. On that date, he described the events of the day in a post on his Gay Cowboy Facebook page.

“Last night didn’t go exactly as planned. Whoops.

“Chute didn’t open right away, and the bull sat down then spun my ankle into the hinge when it opened up — lucky I didn’t break my leg.”

Facebook post by the ‘gay cowboy’ Joshua Goyne 6 March 2016.

No mention of homophobia, rigged bull draws, rigged ropes, malpractice or attempted murder.

No mention of a broken ankle — in fact, Goyne explicitly states that he didn’t break his leg.

Injury report

The NRA provided QNews with a copy of the Injury Report for the 2016 Stanthorpe Rodeo. It lists Goyne as suffering “injured tendon ankle.”

Stanthorpe Rodeo Injury Report 5.03.2016

Josh Goyne, Competitive Bull Rider

Josh Goyne entered a Junior Bull Riding event at Pittsworth on 4 March 2016 and the same at Stanthorpe the following day. Video of the Pittsworth competition shows his first ride lasted about three seconds. At Stanthorpe, he never left the chute.

QNews could find no evidence of Goyne participating as a contestant in any other rodeos before his 2017 allegations.

It appears that in 2017, the Gay Cowboy described himself as a competitive bull rider based on just three thrilling — but ultimately disappointing — seconds.

We always keep the receipts

QNews exists to celebrate our communities and hold their enemies to account.

It is sad to report on the enemy within.

QNews does not make spurious allegations, nor does it suppose anything. We do not hazard guesses or put two and two together.

We only report facts we possess documentary evidence of.

And we always keep the receipts. We save everything.

This writer gave up offering Joshua Goyne the right of reply after he responded to early inquiries by calling me a ‘dumb as dogshit tr*nny c*nt’.

My publisher was the recipient of equally vile slurs, much of it published on social media.

Goyne and his enablers attempted to bully QNews and when that failed, attacked our advertisers.

Our communities need heroes, but real heroes, not bullies or relentlessly self-promoting liars who invent death threats and defame innocent people as attempted murderers while living off the proceeds of never-ending ‘fundraising’.

    The latest scam is his so called “Rainbow Ranch Australia” which hosts rodeos, trail rides and has camping facilities. In reality the land is not his, it’s the ex’s, it has no power or water and apart from an old site shed has no facilities. Curiously part of the old Hume Highway (now decommissioned and not used by traffic) runs through this property, could be the “Highway” where he’s erecting his billboard……

    Contrary to his public statements, Goyne does not own the land. It is not his farm.
    The billboard is located beside the Money Money Parking Bay at Coolac – on or beside land bought on 1 December 2020 by the former partner Goyne left months before allegedly because of domestic violence.

        He has a history of abandoning animals on properties that he’s been evicted from. In several community forums on other social media people warn each other about dealing with him and his history of cruelty particular to horses and wattle. Even on the current property the former owner said JG had trashed the place and there were dead animals lying around. The pigs are not penned and just roam and will go feral another fake cowboy tragedy waiting to happen.

    I would honestly question what rights Mr Goyne is seeking to campaign for.

    Marriage equality has been achieved, queer folk are (generally) in my experience accepted and celebrated. Mr Goyne hails from the most progressive and accepting city in the country yet continues to besmirch the community with his scandals. What does he wish to achieve with a billboard that faces exactly due nowhere.

    He’s spending a lot of time on TikTok putting up vids that border on psychotic making claims about this and that about what he owns and what contract’s he’s signed this week, spruiking his underwear label, his clothing label, breeding pigs, making bacon, acting gigs all over the country, claims he was a fencing contractor for 7 or 8 years (hello, he’s 22….. did he start when he was 15), toured the US rodeo circuit for 3 years (strange how there’s no mention of affinity with the local rodeo associations), acted in the US for years, signed recording contracts, poultry processing and breeding contracts, holding rodeos, gay friendly camping, it foes on and on anytime anyone scrutinises what he says or does he just deletes or blocks or both so his narrative is always positive.
    If he’s so successful why doesn’t he stump up the $1500 for the billboard himself? Or is it $1000? Or $770? It keeps changing. He’s also said on TikTok that he’s raising money for another trip to the US to rodeo where he rodeoed in 6 states and made the finals, mysteriously for someone who lives on social media there’s surprisingly little, well, nothing about in terms of photos or proof of anything he claims. Someone on TikTok simply said to him “Big hat, not cattle.” And it’s true, he’s not a cowboy. Nothing about his life in anyway resembles that of a cowboy.

    At the end of the day, as far as his acting is concerned he will always be that creepy short fat weird guy in the background (and in the case of the Aldi ad you had to squint to see him) and he most certainly doesn’t own the land, James Farnley owns it.

Not even a mention of this tragedy or a sign of solidarity from The Fake Cowboy. Same thing with Stroke Awareness Day on 29 October, not a mention by his so-called leading charity, instead he posted pics of himself on a train platform going to Sydney for a hookup.

    This is yet another money grab by a narcissistic liar who does not own any assets except for perhaps his car .. which in some photo’s it looks like he has been living in it. He does not own a bar/restaurant – his parents do, he does not own a farm or land – his ex partner bought that land.

    Dealing with him is like playing whack a mole – you never know when he will re-appear or what the next scam will be.

    He’s crying poor again, trying to raise $ to maintain “the ranch”, to fund a trip to the USA for rodeos, and of course there’s the billboard…… choose your own adventure – 1) the car was stolen with all his new underwear/clothes that he was going to sell, 2) warehouse broken into all stock has been stolen, 3) rainbow ranch and rodeos on hold due to security issues, 4) flood/fire/famine lost everything.

    You know, it really seems like this is a vendetta. Stating that something isn’t a vendetta doesn’t make it so. While I guess it’s relevant if someone actually does something wrong to report on it, so many of these comments and the voracity of QNews pursuing him, naming people, naming locations actually amounts to doxing, which I believe is illegal. It’s obvious this is a young kid who has some issues and you all want to make sure that you grind him into the ground with never a chance to redeem himself or even live a life and get ahead, in any way. Ever. I get that people might have grievances, but shit! You lot need to get a life. Just ignore him if you don’t like him!

      FFS,

      When a grown man (not a young kid) has relentlessly sought donations from our communities for over half a decade while refusing to account for the funds, we as LGBTIQ media have a responsibility to report on it.

      Reporting on such matters is not doxing – it’s normal everyday news reporting – and whatever you believe – legal.

            Dirty Fella..and what a charming moniker you have!! lol…I think you should really open your very narrow minded sheep eyes and see this “cowboy” for what he actually is. I have a feeling that charges will not be too far off. Just in the last 24 hours he has posted pics of a few deflated tyres on a couple of cars that show no slash marks, then claimed he was attacked by a homophobic mob that not only slashed his tyres but also smashed up his cars!! He did not want to call the cops, because they are also so homophobic that they do not have the capacity to function profesionally, but at least this “cowboy” has had the decency to post links to his Paypal account!!!lol!!!! I was very worried as i did not know where to send him money!!lol..I mean seriously, you have to be completely fucked in the head to believe any of the shit that spews out of that muppets face!!..but i have a feeling that Dirty Fella is one of the people who believes all that crap…but come on Dirty Fella, my garden trailer has a flat tyre.., umm, it was slashed by people who hates gay people, umm, so, umm, hmm, could you send me some money now please? I can’t report it as I am so gay that everyone is way too homophobic and hates me..and if they don’t hate me for being gay, then I will make up a whole load of crap so it seems i am being victimised for being gay…then i am going to kill myself, then i am going to kill myself again…

            Dirty fella is definitely the gay conman cowboy.
            Such a lying lowlife piece of shit.
            He/ You dirty fella have never provided any proof of anything- ever! You thought you could suck me in, and did for a while, until you realized I wasn’t going to give you any money because I wanted evidence of everything. You couldn’t prove anything- which is unlucky for you, because I would’ve given you money. And when I didn’t want to sleep with you- because I find you very unattractive- you worked out I wasn’t going to give you a cent.
            You have to qualify for the world championships- how, when, did you do that? I’ve never seen a video of you on any bulls. We’ll never know the real reason, but you were NOT kicked off the USA because you were too good as you told the world. No one has even heard of you!!! Shonk!!!
            Where’s all the funds you raised gone? Provide Qnews proof of anything… The showgrounds didn’t even know of you, and you’re selling tickets to a gay rodeo?
            And all you stock of undies stolen??? Or were they washed away in the floods??? Or was it a fire???
            And you’re slashed tyres without the slashes???
            I could go on.
            But, now I’m just waiting for the announcement that you’re in gaol. It’ll happen- and I’m praying it does.
            Josh/ Dirty Fella/ conboy cowboy, your days are numbered.
            Put up or shut up.
            There’s no vendetta. People just want to see justice.
            Please spread the word so this shonk doesn’t get another single cent from anyone. Especially the poor yanks who are the ones being mostly targeted.

          What is seriously wrong for Qnews is the fact that they have to report this “cowboy” and have done so with complete accuracy!! This money grubbing alleged “cowboy”..who would not stand a chance of remaining on his feet in a shed full of tied up dairy cows, would be best off fucking back off into the city, finding a safe little hovel there, and then just shutting the fuck up!! I own a few farms and stations around the country..and I dare this little grub to have the audacity to get into contact with me so I can arrange his next bull riding attempt!! I have a few bulls, so he should have no probs as he is so good and experienced to jump on anytime!!!

          OK Dirty Fella, answer me this then. What has happened to all the money that was donated for that ridiculous billboard “promotion”? I saw today that the.. ahem.. “cowboy” has now moved about 100km away from there. So what is happening with the billboard? Where did all the money go? Now that he does not even live there, is he going to continue with this? I have a feeling I will never get an answer from you, because I have a feeling I know exactly who you are..

          It’s hilarious and also pathetic reading JG aka dirty fella which is a very appropriate name choice.
          He is so textbook 101 in his reactions and replies.
          Abusive, nasty and name calling but can’t prove where any money he’s scammed has gone.
          Three trips at least to Texas…
          Cars, clothes, cowboy boots and hats etc.
          None of that money went to any charity, it went up his nose and on partying and drinking and staying in apartments and trips to drug furled Mardi gras parties…
          JG aka the gay con artist fraud boy is nothing but a disgusting bully druggie loser thief and I can’t wait to see him behind bars.
          His videos are pathetic, wired off his nut.
          Eyes always glazed over or peaking off his face.
          That’s where peoples money went.
          The guy can’t even keep a lie consistent FFS.
          Money for billboard that will never happen then all of a sudden he wants money for his car for flattened tyres he did himself then uses his PayPal to scam people for money.
          It’s sad and pathetic and predicable.
          At least less and less people are following him.
          At least he can’t dirty delete these comments like he does on Facebook.
          Anyone who disagrees with him he deletes the comments…
          Because he’s a lying fraudulent narcissistic POS.
          I can’t wait to see him in prison.
          Guarantee he goes straight to protection unit.
          They don’t take too kindly to people like him in prison.

    This guy is an unbelievable scam artist..yet idiots still fall for it!! This guy is a train wreck of a magnitude that is off the charts. I have been following him on social media for a few years now and I can’t believe he thinks people are stupid enough to believe half the BS he claims to have gone through..or claims to have done..or been..or going to do!! Just in the last few years, this muppet claims to be a cowboy, a bullrider, a horse breaker, a land owner, an actor, a seller of online merchandise, been physically attacked, held at gun point numerous times, lost his son (he does not have a son) because he is gay, been verbally attacked, had too many death threats to mention, made too many suicide notes on social media to mention, been taken to court numerous times, held for ransom, claimed to be a land owner ( he owns no land at all), had property vandalised, had livestock stolen, had several cars and trucks stolen..all with expensive equipment in them of course..,been the victim of domestic violence, been evicted off land several times (even though he claims to be a landowner lol), claims his grandmother kicked him off the family farm for being gay, claims he got kicked out of agistment for not being paid by someone..but i thought he owned land??!!lol…,claims he has a casting agent who is outraged by him having an only fans site lol, claims to have an online hate group dedicated to having him removed from tiktok, claims to be a horse breaker and trainer..again lol!!!!, repeated claims that he is going to delete his account because of bullying..but has never done so!!, claims to have been paid almost $6000 for one days work as an actor lol,..sorry I just can’t go on…I could, but I really do not want to!! Just tonight this sponge has posted on a social media site that a homophobic vandal has slashed all his tyres and he does not want to call the police..or pigs as he described them..because they are too homophobic as well. But luckily, and hopefully everyone will sleep easier now that they know this, he has also posted a link where we can all donate money so that he is able to get back on his feet..again….

He creates the homophobia that surrounds, where it doesn’t exist he manufactures it to suit his narrative.

        Nick, yep he has managed to pack a lot of things into just the few short years I have been following him..which I do only because I want to see what unbelievable stories he comes up with next!! I did see the photos of the allegedly slashed tyres. They are just pics of a couple of different cars with deflated tyres, no evidence of slashing whatsoever haha!! Yet, he has posted Paypal requests on all his platforms trying to get money. I have seen a few people make comments about asking for money and questioning if those tyres were actually slashed or just flat..they were quickly shouted down by the moronic sheep who actually believe whatever comes out of this “cowboys” mouth. I am guessing they have also been blocked. I would have blocked this gay cowboy, actor, horse breeder, pig breeder, poultry breeder, model, kidnapped ransom victim, receiver of multiple death threats and constant victim of endless homophobic attacks ages ago but it is just so damned entertaining to see what happens next..and also to see what brain dead zombies are believing and supporting it!!

    Like Sam, I have been following him with interest for a number of years. First came to my attention when he was doing the bicycle rides for charity and then when he had a go at a local cycling club road race. His version of events that transpired in the road race (and why he didn’t finish) are very different to what I know happened. Also saw him exaggerating about him competing in an upcoming National Road Series (NRS) cycling event not soon after. Of course that never happened/transpired. At first I thought it was just a tendency to exaggerate on his part but now it seems to be just outright lies. Also remember him getting in on a post about sexual abuse with him putting a post up saying that he had been sexually abused. A few hours later that post was deleted like so many others I have seen him delete. Definitely a person to be wary of when it comes to what is true. And yes as for his supporters, I suspect most if not all have never met him. Just blindly support him for whatever reason.

Almost choked on my drink as I was laughing so hard!! Then he goes on about his recent slashed tyres incident and that the pics he posted clearly show slash marks..spoiler alert-they don’t!! Then he asks why he would do that and then just ask for donations..kind of answered his own question there lol. Then of course there is the declarations of not being able to take much more of this before he is 6 foot under……again!!yawn..I am now just waiting for the requests to help/donate so that he can finally get back on his feet….again!!

      There will be something to replace funds used at Mardi Gras.

    So… I have the privilege of knowing all the people involved here. Yes, I know about the billboard, no, he hasn’t taken the money and used it somewhere else. Yes, I know who actually owns the property, no, you guys really have no idea about the complexities that are involved here. Yes, I know where the information to QNews came from, no, you guys don’t know what it’s all about. There most defintely IS a vendetta and QNews is being used as the avenue to execute that.

    Interesting that supposed journalists are not capable of working out the intricacies here. I guess they don’t necessarily fall under the banner of “investigative journalism” and take the path of least resistance where possible. While I’ve heard all about the stories of who won’t/wouldn’t sleep with whom, I’m not sure your small minds would really cope with the entirety of the story. I’ve heard ACA mentioned a few times here and there and that would really be an interesting thing to see. Any credible journalist would scratch below the surface and pick up the real story. This is just sensationalist garbage here.

    The Gay Cowboy definitely has a problem where his mouth gets him into trouble, but he doesn’t really fit the profile of a scam artist. He doesn’t have the money that went missing from the charity, though it is known where it is and the person responsible will be held to account. The money is not lost. The billboard (or billaboard, LOL) will happen eventually, and he has no plans to use that money anywhere else. Destiny, maybe you should do a little more digging darling. The real story is so much more interesting than this crap.

    And for the record, yeah, he really did think all his pigs died. He did find most of them, but not all. He tends to get a bit melodramatic, but what he says is what he thinks at the time. In some ways, given the sort of crap here, it’s enough to make anyone paranoid. Especially someone so young! Oh, and while we’re at it, compared to most of the people throwing shit here (and those with a vendetta), yeah, he’s really just a kid. And if you’ve never met him in real life, you probably shouldn’t comment.

    I suspect it will all come out in the wash. So we’ll see how things go. Until then, I get to laugh at the comments here. You’re all really funny!

      I also have the benefit from knowing people here. Josh being the number 1.
      From day one with Josh making public accusations of high school teachers telling him if he were gay nothing would come of him.
      All false.
      From family members who disown him. Flying rainbow flags atop Murrumbateman houses and crying wolf of homophobic neighbours.
      Of death threats.
      Of slurs.
      But continual requesting of PayPal and other cash donations on multiple social media platforms and cashed up parents who bail him out time and time again is a bit much for us the general public to take.

      And Seeing, we know this isn’t Josh. It’s too well written. And doesn’t refer to sane sex relationships.

      It’s just lie, after lie, after lie, after lie.
      From being virtually destitute after the “homophobic” vandalism to a Mardi Gras weekend in Sydney (minimum $1000) to buying $10000 worth of underwear to selling 1000’s within hours (that was a lucky strike) all without a dedicated website or payment gateway….. still no photos of the current range, or of orders being fulfilled, or reviews from satisfied customers.
      A farm that doesn’t produce anything. A ranch that doesn’t run any stock. A camp ground with no facilities. A property with no power and no water that he claims to have bought with the ex (who he has spent the last 12 months accusing of domestic vionlence). Pigs with no pens that disappear, reappear, one day they’re pets, next day they’re bacon.
      The “rescued” horses, the chickens, the peacocks, the bucking chutes, the arena, the rodeo (moved for the umpteenth time)…

        Listening to his Tik Tik crap, his homophobic Grandmother gave him the land, he was going to confront her about her views on this. Loved her and then hated her. In his opinion, everyone is homophobic. No, they just can’t tolerate his rubbish. Don’t dare ask where the money went, he’ll just block you. Yesterday’s Tik Tok was that someone had said the world would be a better place without him here and he was upset over the comment, yet continually posts about suicide. People who are considering it don’t tell anyone. Fact there.

        To those who say “he’s just a kid” need to wake up. He’s 22 and according to his work history of being a fencing company owner for 8 years, he’s an adult since age 14. I know heaps of company owners at age 14!!

        Loves the attention when it suits but seems he can’t handle the heat and answer legitimate questions when asked. Just blocks them.

        Correct. His underwear company. His words… went from selling a couple of thousand pairs of undies and shipped a few hundred. No link to website or payment method. Nothing he says or posts adds up.

        That’s enough red flags wouldn’t you think. I counted 5 chickens, 1 horse, and a few pigs (that are inside the house which he locked himself out of – yuck) Don’t know anyone with pigs in their house!! A farmer with no dog however. LOL.

    Seeing. I’d rename yourself blind. And foolish.

    I get literally bombarded on social media with people messaging me about what the infamous “Conboy” has done to them, how he has perceived himself as being a saint and done nothing but literally scammed money off them. Do you mean to tell me that these people have made all of their stories up? Each individual has had something different happen to them where it involves money being transferred to the “Conboy” and they either get blocked after a week (even after helping the guy) or are continually used until they wake up to what’s happening to them. As sad as it is, some people fall for his crap.

    Numerous Tik Tok, Facebook, Insta posts show him as this almighty power within the gay community, how wealthy he is from making money selling his “over a thousand pairs” of underwear in a weekend, the property he own – I could go on all night with what the “Conboy” claims he owns. Should he dare go out in the wind, all his tickets would fly off.

    So, Seeing. May I ask why someone with so much supposed wealth, fortune and good luck would make a Go Fund Me page asking for donations towards a billboard? Pretty simple. If he was that generous – he’d pay for it himself. A mere $6,000 shouldn’t wouldn’t touch the sides (If you believe what you hear him saying). So who has hold of the money that was raised for the billboard and when will it be started? According to the company that owns (yes – actually owns the billboard), they have absolutely no idea as to what is happening. No enquiries have been made on it regarding a lease for months. Call them like I did. Ask the owners of the billboard.

    I do believe however, Seeing isn’t “The Gay Conboy” – he can make a sentence that is understandable and literate. I don’t believe however that you’re thinking correctly and have your blinkers on at the moment. “Conboy” would have to be the most desperate, fake, unbelievable, audacious, and deceptive person I have come across.

    One would ask also, why the guy moves so often. Even though he is holding a party at his so called Ranch, one has to think – is this actually legitimate? A party for all his “fans”. I’d like to attend however I am far from being a fan of him. I have seen all too often what he has done and the audience he targets. Mainly older, naive people in the USA who are under the assumption he is raising money for worthwhile charities. Far from the fact there. Does he have any proof of where the money donated went? Like a receipt? No would be the answer there. Anyway – moving house. How does he manage to do this in a 12 hour period with no social media attention and the enormous livestock logistics nightmare that would be. Magically overnight a fence goes up and he is gone? Wow. The guy has a few piglets, a few pigs. Far from a farmer. Garden market hobby, yes.

    In closure (and I could go on), it just doesn’t add up. How could someone who runs a farm with so many supposed animals find so much time to spend on social media? How does he manage a fencing company, running the “Rodeo Ranch” (what a load of horse crap), work in the restaurant, run a magnate empire underwear company (more horse crap), run a pig farm etc etc….. it just doesn’t add up. He’d need a payroll of 30 people with the amount he says he does. I find it hard enough to listen to his rubbish – yet people seem to believe it.

    So there has been no mention of the billboard for a couple of weeks now, he did post a video asking for money and saying that the haters were wrong 2 weeks ago… I am guessing there has been no update because he has moved about 100km away from where that sign is. There has been a post about him having a 10k business loan to make tie dyed, rainbow coloured underwear with a question of who wants to buy a pair?? No links to a website to buy any or any mention of how to buy these essential fashion statements though….hhhmmmm, could this possibly be a post that is not completely honest??!!lol!!…There has also been a post about how the “haters” of The Gay Cowboy got his FB page restricted. No mention of how it is restricted, or any mention of any reason for the restriction just a post saying the “haters” got it restricted!!lol..again!! Then also a claim about meeting his ex in a crowd of over 30,000 people, threats to delete FB, then statements that there is huge news about to drop that is making him cra cra-his words btw!! Then there is a statement that he has substantial proof that his ex fucked his best mate on his 21st, states he won a wet t-shirt comp, a post that says you can work from anywhere in the world with his world renowned brand, states he has a hundred more orders in the mail(for what?)..I mean Jeez..this train wreck of a bloke would have to have the most stupid, moronic, empty headed idiots of people following and supporting him that they deserve to get fleeced of money!! And Josh/Seeing/Dirty Fella, in case you were wondering, fleece is a product that comes from sheep, but fleeced can also mean ripped off!!

      LMAO. Well said. His Tik Tok, Facebook and all social media needs to be blocked. The guy irks people just by opening his mouth. He’s an embarrassment to the gay community.

    And this week…. He’s going to be a stuntman in an action movie!!! And an actor and extra…! All at the same time in the same movie. He’s delirious. It’s actually not possible. I’ve worked in the industry.
    Can wait to see him flying through the air!
    Who’s posting the undies, when he sold thousands last week, but only posted a couple hundred??? Who’s working on the arena for the rideo? Who’s doing the fencing? Who’s looking after the pig farm?
    Oh, and why have the billboard company not heard from him, yet he’s got the money? I’d love to see pics of the new tyres that he had to buy to get back on the road.
    He is an embarrassment to the gay community and Australia.
    Qnews, please keep digging and forwarding everything to ATO, ASIC, Alan Jones and Tracy Grimshaw. Please shut him up and stop him from scamming money from unsuspecting older gay guys.

      Hey Shaun, this bloke is not just an embarrassment to the gay community of Australia, he is also causing trouble to the unsuspecting people overseas who don’t know what he is up to. Hopefully once these people realize they are being ripped off they don’t think that all Aussies are the same as that muppet!! Something truly needs to be done about this grub, and soon!! I know karma, and eventually the law, will catch up to him but in the meantime he is still online with his hat in his hand begging for money. The billboard, the tyres, the ranch, the rodeo, the underwear, the fencing, the äcting”career, the stuntman career(lol), the rodeo career(even bigger lol!!), the kidnapping, the ransom, the suicide threats, the pigs, the constant homophobia, the..oh I can’t be bothered going on!!lol..there is just way too many lies, scams and outright bullshit to mention on here!! Although, I gotta say, that billboard scam was pretty hilarious!! He lives about 100km away from that sign ffs!!lol..yet there were people who did fall for it, which is exactly what he wanted!! It was almost as good as him selling tickets to the gay rodeo!!hahaha!!!

    Seriously, this is far better reality viewing than anything on TV. This guy is a total embarrassment to our community. Have followed him from the start, only for the entertainment value, which sadly these days, is dangerous to our community. If you missed todays episode….it started with a total vial accusation against a member of the police force, naming him with a barrage of accusations of discrimination, this post was gone in a few hours, followed by another post accusing the ex (who this guy is still consumed by ) accusing him of last night stealing tools from the farm….of which he possibly owns, lololol this too, was deleted before the sun went down. Surely …. he must be aware, that the majority of his viewers/followers are there to watch his outrageous behaviour, egotistical rants and delusional facade of grandeur behaviour (forgetting his post he was living on 3 minute noodles) sadly he has become dangerous to all we have strived for within our community, the work achieved with the gay & lesbian police task force throughout this country is huge, he is nothing but a walking time bomb. His behaviour with the highway billboard, Gst on underwear sales, and a general taxation enquiry is going to hurt. Sadly this guy needs professional help, before he becomes a movie plot….

Then he has been ridiculed and told his being gay is a choice, pleas for attention for his upcoming birthday because he has now realised how little he means to people, a ridiculous post about his ex buying a wig..so of course he did too!!, he is asking who would be interested in attending a “farm party” for his birthday..despite him hating his birthday, proclamations that he is now an out and proud gay christian(honestly..wtf!!??)..who the actual fuck comes up with these unbelievably ridiculous stories??

    So according to his GOFRAUDME page, he scored $350.00 of his aim for just over $700 before it was closed. This does not make sense if the cost to hire the billboard in the first place was way more than $700!!! No more mention of the billboard as of 20/3/2021 at 16.35. I am not sure how much he got for his posts asking for money to compensate for the homophobic and violent slashing attack against several tyres (may they RIP until they are re-inflated!!LOL)..I am sure the timing of both these incidents leading up to Mardi Gras are just a coincidence…right?..umm, right (crickets)..But on the positive side of things, The Gay Cowboy is now engaged to the love of his life(again), free to pursue a life of religious fulfillment as a now out and proud gay Christian!! May Gods blessings be upon you both, and a chorus of heavenly Angels sing you to your rest..wishing you both a long and happy life together!!!..now to fund the wedding..please standby as there will be a GOFRAUDME page up anyday soon..or some tragedy will occur that requires funding, but trust me, something will happen and there will be a post pleading for money……………..again!!

      Apparently he’s going back to the US to compete…! Go away. Stay there!!! But I bet that doesn’t happen either… he’ll blame The Homophobes for not letting him compete. Or the fundraising failure because of jealous competitors.
      If he’s so successful and got so much money, stop embarrassing yourself and asking for money all the time. You look like a loser on the corner shaking your tin can…! Literally look like one.

    He doesn’t add up, make sense, have any morals or guilt. The Billboard was a load of crap. Yet people donated for it. Unethical really. But that’s him all over. I remember his first sob story about being thrown out of home by his Aunt (homophobic of course), but where were the parents? Had they given up on him as well? I’d assume so.

    Posting crap on Facebook now about all his haters. And how successful he is and will be in the future. Bit like a peasant saying they’re a millionaire. No proof of his so called wealth. And I don’t know any millionaires who wear the same Wrangler Tshirt for days in a row with dribble all over it. LOL.

    He got his free pass to MG. WOW. I don’t feel at all sorry for Tom, the latest fiancee. He’ll learn the hard way like all the others. I wish them well.

      Exactly right there Paul. The only acting he is good at pretending on Tik Tok that he’s some superstar, along the lines of Joan Collins from Dynasty. Marlena Dietrich, etc.

      When I saw the part of his “acting” lifting his leg over the verandah – I almost lost my shit laughing. Chubs certainly can’t do anything related to stuntman material if he finds it hard to lift his legs. The fake horse summed up his Rainbow Unicorn Rodeo Ranch. Fake. They did a great job selecting him.

    Now, in his latest Gay Cowboy post, he’s claiming to have signed a recording deal. This must be one very talented guy!! However I feel his only talent is talking bullshit. As quoted before re: his post about losing Jobkeeper, I doubt highly the Government would be impressed by his posts about “his bar” and other multiple businesses being so profitable.

    Again, it’s just more sewerage spilling out of his mouth. I’m all for helping people who need help. But he’s beyond help now. Just a serial liar, thief and fraud.

    If someone who uses a hashtag #millionaire after their post, you’d not need a Go Fund Me page for $810 worth of billboard which has suddenly gone quiet. He has no shame. The drugs have obviously cooked his brain (what’s left of it) and his posts are getting again beyond desperation.

    How does he get away with it? I have to ask the question. Are Yass Police so misinformed that they can’t stop this cretin from penetrating society with his loads of horse shit? He can sure defame an officer at Yass Police station – yet can’t stand on his own two feet to defend his claims. Pathetic really.

    I have seen (yet again) so many of his short posts on social media. The one’s where he realises he’s put his foot in his mouth, he deletes quickly. An attention seeking halfwit . I agree with Stevo. It’s beyond time, this idiot has to be removed from society into something more……. Wentworth style. All he does is rip people off – and the silly fools believe him. C’mon!! Cat litter trays have more intelligence.

    If the guy would pull his head in, and stop attention seeking with his absurd, ridiculous and embarrassing posts – life would be much easier. People in the country are not homophobic. They just dislike dickheads being forced in their face. And he’s one hell of one.

    I actually showed a straight associate one of his posts. His comment; “Gosh! that’s embarrassing to gays, and inappropriate”. The guy posts utter crap. Moving along >>>

Eefan, if I am right in thinking you are the guy I am thinking of, I have just very recently added you as a friend on FB. I have lived on a farm in a remote area of Australia my entire life, and I have been out for years, but I have never, ever endured what that lying piece of crap says he has had to endure in regards to all the alleged homophobic attacks. Sure, it has not all been smooth sailing, but as an actual crop farmer and a breeder of Merinos and live/own a property of over 15000 acres, I can guarantee you that Ms Goyne would have absolutely no idea what actual country life in Australia would be like!! I would love to have that idiot here on my farm..for just a couple of weeks..just to see how it copes!! My guess is, it would not last a week..but luckily the recording contracts, the acting work, the fencing contracting, the owning of the bar etc..(lol)..that would make sure that all is good in his drug fuelled life!! I just can’t understand how one person can lie and manipulate so many people into believing the unbelievable crap that comes out of his mouth, then get them to give him money!!?? Surely that has got to be illegal!! His Gofundme schemes?..surely there has to be proof of his taking money for a cause like that billboard and then all posts about it disappearing like all the donations. I can not find a single post about that billboard now, am I wrong and I just did not search enough? But I can’t find anything about a billboard now!! So, where has the money gone?

    Conboy posting about death of Matthew Shepard (again), incorrectly stating it’s the anniversary. As tragic as this is, he has posted over 12 times about him but has said nothing about the other 100’s (probably 1000’s) of LGBTQI+ deaths and bashing’s at the hands of ignorant perpetrators, most recently at our own Mardi Gras. His only interest is his perceived homophobia directed at him. He’s not a champion of rural LGBTQI+, but he is the champion of self-interest!
    It’s peculiar that he makes no mention of events at home, aside from the billboard go-fund-me scam – the topic was noble enough but the funds went into his pocket to fund his Mardi Gras weekend.
    So much for his much touted ‘respect and values’ for the LGBTQI+ community…..
    It’s very apt in his recent post about a Westfield ad showing him as a fake cowboy riding a fake horse captioned “you know you’ve made it when….”

    A reader just noticed Goyne drinking and on his phone in his parent’s restaurant in Canberra, while the fiance smokes out the front.
    We know what he’s doing on the phone. He’s on TikTok rounding up donations to help him after a break-in where thieves allegedly stole his saddles, bed, clothes, alcohol and everything else including his partner’s father’s ashes.
    Goyne posted 17 minutes ago “Lost everything. Don’t know where to start.”
    It seems he already decided that a bar an hour and a half from the scene of the crime might be a good start.
    This round of ‘fund-raising’ comes after he collected donations for a billboard which never eventuated, more money to repair his vehicles following a ‘homophobic’ attack and then a birthday fund-raiser to pay for the last two panels of his rodeo arena.

I think just about everyone has finally cottoned on to the fact you are just a money grabber and attention seeker, except for maybe a few people of very limited intelligence. Would love to do an IQ test on your fiance. It is time for you to now go away and stay there, you have done nothing but give Aussie gays a bad reputation both here and overseas. I have a feeling that you are going down for that billboard scam, and I am looking forward to seeing that happen. Your posts on social media more often than not seem to be a drug fuelled rant, with your rambling and bloodshot eyes. The best you could do now mate, is just give it all up. You are not a cowboy, farmer, actor, stuntman, bullrider, singer, fencer, advocate for LQBTQI people..or the million other things you promote yourself as. You need to come clean on a public forum and ask the community for forgiveness..and not for money for once in your grubby little life. You really should be ashamed of yourself, but I doubt a person like you has the capacity for guilt. If you have any guts at all, you will reply to this comment, but I think we all know what the outcome of that will be.

    Josh, or whoever you call yourself above, your time is up. Give it up. Apologize, admit your scams, and return peoples money. It might just reduce your gaol time.

      What Billboard? That fell flat on it’s face – like the whole Cowboy Con job did to be honest. The only one’s who believed him were the yanks… and look at where they are now.

      I’m a proud Australian. I am ashamed to see his face. Utter scum of the earth stealing money off people because he decides he can’t work… oh…. hold on, he has 15 jobs. Yet are the people aware he has no RSA to actually serve alcohol, he probably thinks he deserves getting tanked for a mere 4 hour shift at the family bar.

      The latest Tik Tok showed his parents. Ii bet my ass cheeks they”re not amused, they looked like they weren’t. Faces like dropped pies – anyway. (and they need wardrobe assistance.. maybe a freebie from RM Williams or Wrangler again)

      I actually feel sorry for James. He gave up a marriage to be with this complete, utter, lying douche. Doesn’t give us a good name. Not that we need competition against this ankle.

    This is gold! Goyne has finally come unstuck! This man belongs in jail! He won’t stop before that as he thinks he is untouchable! This is the Australian version of the Tiger King. Narcissistic megalomaniac.
    You need to contact the International Gay Rodeo Association (IGRA) They have a interesting story to tell you about him.

    Would love to hear the story from the IGRA, but I can pretty much imagine what they have to say!!lol..Thank you Destiny for the updates, very, very interesting and well put together reading. The Gay “Cowboy” seems to have gone quiet on FB. I did hear that he is now single, so maybe the fiance finally came to his senses and if so well done mate, ya dodged a big ass bullet there!! Goyne has also posted that he is off FB as he cant deal with the haters!! Hope he doesn’t think just because he is staying quiet on social media allows him to not be held accountable for what he has done. There is now a great Facebook page called The Fake Aussie Gay Cowboy. If everyone shares/forwards that page to all the enablers who comment on Goynes sites (he has his friends list blocked), and also give a link to this page on Qnews so all can read this article and comments, word will spread not only in Australia but also to the people he has fooled overseas. Hopefully this is now the downfall of this scammer, and looking forward to the inevitable criminal charges that are surely not too far off.

    Well there you go. All the evidence you need. Worse is that there’s more than reported above.
    Great work Destiny with your investigative journalism. Very professional and well done. Concrete evidence. His time is up.

    Another interesting thing is that “his”‘Rainbow ranch, is on the market. Being sold by the actual property owner. Most of us knew that this was a figment of his imagination… but here’s further proof. Also to note, that all the money raised for his arena that was just about finished- I think he said he only needed that $200- for the last two panels… Well not surprisingly, there’s no rodeo arena, at all! The whole Rainbow Ranch was a sham. You can see in the property advertisement that nothing is on the property! Literally not a single arena fence. No improvements to the land. It has a 1 bedroom house and a shipping container. It would appear that the reason he was in court last week was to be evicted off the property owned by an ex and he was staying there illegally. Now he’s gone, the property is for sale. Rainbow Ranch never existed, and he’s spent the money. And the billboard that is on the property remains blank. Where’s all the money from the fundraising for LGBTIQ+ awareness campaign??? Where’s the money raised for the Gay Rodeo Association, and Rainbow Ranch Rodeo gone??? He’s literally got nothing to show for all the money donated besides pics of him drinking and partying.
    And this all happened at the same time he became single. Engagement (wonder what happened to his imaginary ring and croc belt ) is off. It seems Tom came to his senses.
    We need to collect all the names of people who have lost money to his scams and we all need to take him to court. Then the police will take over and have him locked up.
    People need to stop feeling sorry for him, because he’s not the victim, WE are. He’s robbed us. We’ve all been ripped off and taken advantage of by you Josh. You’re not a victim you’re a criminal and you should be in gaol.
    The Karma bus is hurtling towards you Josh… you are going to be held accountable. Tom, you’re an accessory, but you can lessen your part by coming clean and telling the truth.

    Here is the link to the imaginary Rainbow Ranch that never existed. Note the lack of fences and arena that you all paid towards.

    Come on now, surely he must be getting close to being charged for these scams now? Wouldn’t that billboard scam be enough to have him charged? Has this been reported to the police? If not, why not? I didn’t donate any money but I will put in a tentative complaint to the police anyway just to make them aware just in case no one else has. Let’s see what happens then.

    Have noticed that as well Granddad’s ashes…I am starting to think that finally the majority of people with an ounce of common sense and intelligence have woken up to the fact that the “cowboy” is a fake, fraudulent scammer, whose lying has managed to take a lot of money from a lot of people. Of course, there will still be a few idiots who somehow still think he is the genuine thing and will throw money at him to assist in whatever the next tragedy is, and the countdown is on. What is it gonna be this time. Another homophobic attack against a car, a homophobic break in, a kidnapping, a held up at gun point scenario, a flood, a domestic violence attack, a birthday, a fire, yet another suicide statement..pretty sure there is not much left for him to stick his hand out for unless a volcano decides to erupt at the fictitious rainbow ranch and destroys all his belongings…..AGAIN!!! Muppet man has had more (fake) drama in just a few very short years than anything a script writer for Home and Away could come up with and have it semi believable!!! Time to go now fake “cowboy”, everyone is slowly but surely becoming aware of your bullshit..finally!!! See you in court Muppet Man!!

    Apparently The gay “cowboy” has moved to Tamworth and is now going to be the manager of The Imperial Brew House there. Check out the last few posts on their facebook page..the crap that always surrounds him has already started. So no more rainbow ranch, no more arena, no more billboard, no more acting career..bit of a shame really as I always had a great laugh reading about his latest ridiculous story about any of the fictional crap that occurred in his very dramatic life. Also, bit of a shame for all the people he scammed money out of for fairy tale crap that was so obviously bullshit, but fools and money are easily parted. Anyway, at least I can sit back with a nice cold drink and watch as the Imperial Brew House saga slowly boils to a head..and it will with Mr G involved.

    Woops..sorry..all the posts about The Imperial Brew House in the last couple of weeks have now been deleted..who’s shocked??? So pretty much no posts since December last year now..so all the posts asking who wants to be the headliner at the grand re-opening, all the posts stating that they are just one signature away from re-opening, all the hyped posts stating that the pub will re-open next Friday..all of that is a load of bullshit!!!! If this alleged cowboy muppet is in charge of any pub anywhere (and for fucks sake, who the fuck would hire him), and able to run it successfully (without any scamming)..then I will donate $1000 to a reputable stroke charity.

    Well shit! You guys have nothing better to do. I think those people who know Josh and have just grown bored with all this. No, this is just tabloid level reporting. Destiny isn’t even close to the truth yet. Seems to me that it really is a vendetta and QNews is the vehicle for that to be done. Destiny, you’ve been duped.

    So in the last few days the “cowboy” has been quite busy in his attempts for money, sympathy, attention, money. He started a Gofundme on his own page and also the “cowboy” page with the ridiculous but familiar sum of $180,000 being the target goal. This was so he could get money to “set the record straight” against all his” haters” and “bullies””. He asked that donations be kept direct and offline, just in case the page got deleted!!lololol..The only way that Gofund me can verify donations this way is by trusting the word of the person setting up the fund to begin with!! Within minutes of this page being set up, the alleged cowboy was inundated with the most generous offers, all by offline and anonymous donors. One donation was for the lovely sum of $10,000!!! There were a few others for $2500, and before too long the total was very close to $20,000..not bad going at all and especially when the donations all came in at pretty much the same time!!lol..Guess who made fake donations to himself to make it look like he has great financial backing? During this time, and also a day or so before, there were the obligatory sympathy seeking comments of him being at rock bottom, then there was another since deleted post about how his life was just so worthless he is going to jump off a bridge, and another since deleted post about a court date with his ex, and another stating that life is not worth living and it would be easier to end it….meanwhile on another page of his at pretty much the same time, the “cowboy” is crowing about how he has already scored $16000 and living his best life, and how much he loves his (good lord i hate to use this word but it is what he said) “fans”. Using threats of suicide or self harm, as he has done numerous times in the past just prior to starting a Gofundme, is a disgustingly shocking way to get attention and money, and makes a mockery of people who actually do have these feelings. He is a shit stain on the Gay community of Australia, as it is gay people he is mainly targeting both here and overseas. As of today 7/5 at 12pm the Gofundme page has been shut down, and of the 13 or so donations (that amounted to almost $20,000) there was only 3 or 4 actual donors. On the “cowboys” own personal fb page he has posted he has now engaged a lawyer to get justice due to the haters and bullies!!lolol. Also, interesting to note is that The Gay Cowboy page has disappeared today!!..hmm, wonder what happened there?lol. Hopefully this will be his last attempt to get money out of people, but I somehow don’t think so.

    Oh god.. He will pop up again in no time. Guaranteed! It’ll be asking for money again… The only way he gets by is donations to the pity party and the pretense of doing something worthy.
    He’s so pathetic and so predictable. Up down up down, Living my best life, pathetic threats of suicide, domestic violence, every boyfriend (so hard to keep up ) has stolen everything, going to court to win, stolen (non existent ) Rainbow Ranch. Living in my car… whilst his parents who love him and get along with, have plenty of money. Yet he’s a millionaire, and has a million dollar recording contract. And what’s happened to all his animals??? Has he dumped them?
    I think we need to start a class action against him and Tom, for the return of all the monies stolen! If they weren’t used for the donated purpose, it’s theft, fraud and at the very least, misappropriation of funds. Tom, you’ve been warned, you’re going down with him. You lived together as partners, were part of the pleas for donations, and you used the funds too. You’d be very wise to distance yourself from him, and come clean. It’ll look better in court… and TV! #ACurrentAffair.

    Another things that really pisses me off is that he’s making Australians and Australia sound like a homophobic country! We’re not!!! It’s not even an issue anymore! Police are fantastic. Marriage is legal. We have rights. He is so pathetic to keep marching that one out!
    He is a disgrace to Australia, and all Australians who identify under the LGBTQI++ banner.
    STFU and go away Joshua. We do NOT want you as an ambassador for anything.
    You’re a loser, lying and rattling the tin can asking for other peoples money. Get an actual job and pay your own way.
    I wouldn’t ask anyone for money, ever.
    No dignity or integrity whatsoever.
    As I offered before, I’ll pay for your counseling, but you’re not actually going to see a cent. I’ll pay the hospital and the drs.
    Otherwise, just go away…, because you’re heading for gaol at this stage.
    And, If you want to go to court…, be careful about what you wish for! Because in court, the truth comes out. And your hustle will unravel for the world to see. And there’s going to be a huge witness list. I’ll start a gofundme to pay to get the witnesses who’s money you scammed to get to court. Some people gave you money when they had none to give. Absolutely despicable of you. I’ve got a list!!! Mostly Americans, but many in Australia. And no judge is going to think you’re cute, or feel sorry for you.
    One last thing; Be very careful selling things that you don’t actually own, or haven’t paid for.
    Time is ticking.

    Hahahahaha..i just..lololol…..so today on TGC’s facebook page..one of Mr G’s sheep asked what happened to the most recent Gofraudme..sorry Gofundme..and why it got stopped!! The reply from Mr G was that donations were now offline(lol) as he is sick of the haters(i think he means people who have cottoned on to his scams) and the total scammed..sorry i meant donated is now at 22k!!!!lolololol…..Then, he also says that he is having a meeting with his “legal team” , Which is surpisingly happening today…haha what a coincidence!! Hahahaha..legal team!!!!!!! I mean, c’mon..is he even deluding himself? Hey cowboy..what about the BILLBOARD??? What about the ARENA?? What about the RAINBOW RANCH?? Can’t wait to see what happens with the fictitious lawsuit against his haters..his defense will be an awesome amount of bullshit!!! But it will never happen.. There has been a lot of recent posts on all his pages about how he is a victim of domestic violence..so I am guessing it won’t be long till there is another plea for money..the countdown is on..again!!

    So in the last few days he has been allegedly fat shamed..which he should be, as he promotes a lifestyle that takes money off people without doing a damn thing!! Hey” Cowboy”…get off your ass and work for a living!!!..then there has been posts begging for people to send him likes, then another hilarious one stating that he is now working full time for his “label”, which has supposedly sold 1000 pairs in the last week!!!! This post was also asking for a “guru” to help sell these non existent items!!!lolololololol!!!!!!!! This post also had a hilariously disgusting pic with it!!..so bad!!! I have never been softer!!! There has been zero mention of the 60+ thousand he has allegedly scored in the last few weeks..got a feeling there will never be a mention of it again..despite his huge court win!!lololol..What really shits me though, is that he posts a pic of himself, in all it’s c***** non-glory, wearing nothing but cheap as shit jocks and Bunnings bought socks, loitering in what I am guessing is a public toilet..while at the same time crowing about the fact that it is a cowboy!!!!!

    But these comments are alot to be desired… I understand alot of you have been hurt or lost money to his antics, I’m one of you, but alot of derogatory demeaning comments doesn’t help anyone. Let’s not come down to his level.

    Some of you mention that you follow his pages for Lols, which I get, but have we all tried to report or flag these pages with Facebook/Twitter/google to get them removed?

    Hey Tipsy, you are missing the point I think. There has been a LOT of people scammed out of money, so whatever comments, however derogatory you think they are, are very well justified!! Just in this last week, that muppet has stated that he has been offered a pub lease in Tamworth (again??..really?? I smell more bullshit than can be smelt at an actual rodeo), done photo shoots(for what?), signed a contract to appear in a movie(lololol!!!), posted a video where he states he has a truck load of underwear on the way to customers (he does not open the truck to prove this), put up a post saying that everyone wants him dead, then another post saying he has got his permit back to compete in rodeos ( can’t wait to see what happens there), put up another post about how he has sold so many jocks he is now out of debt for the first time since he was 18 (despite the fact there are no ways to actually purchase these fictitious items),he’s broken up with another boyfriend, been fat shamed.. and all this does not include any of his tiktok vids btw, this is all just fb!! After all this in one week, I can just about guarantee there will be a gofundme coming up soon..just wait a bit and it will happen!!

    So…still nothing about the billboard after all these months!! I am guessing that the piece of **** *** ******* has gotten away with theft again. Have seen a few posts on his numerous Facebook pages where he makes references to his “legal team”, and also he states that he can cope with his “haters” because he has a “team” working behind the scenes to make sure he is all good!!!lololololol..who the actual fuck does this deluded moron think he is?? He is not a world famous movie star, he is a broke ass scammer who swindles people out of money on social media..but wait..didn’t he sign a million dollar recording contract??!! FFS, have heard frogs croaking in better tune than what I have heard that idiot sing!! He thinks he has a legal team and an entourage ffs!!! There was also a fair few posts about his return to being a rodeo rider as well..absolutely hilarious as the only pic of anyone actually riding a bull was not of him!!!! Just a few pics of that idiot wandering around a rodeo ground and taking photos of real cowboys is about all scamboy could do!! Then there was a couple of posts about him being the victim of dv..again, despite no proof of this…omg, this shit stain of a person has no idea of what reality is..can’t wait to see how he is in 10 years time. I am guessing a ********, ******** ***** **** **** as he is pretty much already there. I hope his “team” of legal professionals (who would be so busy atm anyway with all his non stop legal action) don’t come after me lol..fucking idiot!!! Anyway, I look forward to seeing the results of these non stop photo shoots, tv shows, movies, stunt man career et al…but I think we all know it is an absolute pile of lies!!
