WASHINGTON - Starting at 9:02 pm (PDT) on Friday, Oct. 20, bidding will begin to start closing on the popular eBay featured, one-of-a-kind, online auction of historical memorabilia from the 2005 hit movie Brokeback Mountain - the unforgettable Focus Features film directed by Academy Award winner Ang Lee.

Focus Features and James Schamus, producer of Brokeback Mountain, have graciously donated the proceeds of the auction to benefit the Human Rights Campaign's work towards achieving equality for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans.

The Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights organization, in conjunction with Delivery Agent Inc., the leader in shopping-enabled programming for television shows, motion pictures, sports and music videos, have made the auction available for bidding online from Oct. 13 until midnight, Oct. 20, on www.seenon.com.

The collection was first previewed on Saturday, Oct. 7, at the Human Rights Campaign's 10th Annual National Dinner held in Washington, D.C., when a live auction of the first outfit from the film raised $18,000 to benefit the programs of the Human Rights Campaign.

"The overwhelming response to this one-of-a-kind auction continues to underscore the way in which Brokeback Mountain touched so many lives in a very profound and personal way," said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese. "Not only will bidders receive a remarkable part of Hollywood history, they will also be investing in promoting and securing equality for all Americans."

"Delivery Agent is proud to be part of this important film's historic auction," said Mike Fitzsimmons, CEO of Delivery Agent. "The amazing consumer response is a clear indication of people's desire to support the incredible work of HRC and own the products seen on screen."
