Source on the Scene: Bucking All Stereotypes About the Gay Rodeo

It’s called “Queens & Cowboys: A Straight Year on the Gay Rodeo” and it’s meant to clear up some misconceptions that some people have about the IGRA International Gay Rodeo Association and its participants. It’s also a frank and candid look at some of the obstacles that the competitors have had to overcome. One of the main characters that filmmaker, Matt Livadary, followed is a descendent of Wyatt Earp, who has been participating in the IGRA for the past 25 years. Earp and the IGRA community travel all over to partake in the action and it’s not for the money, being an amateur rodeo there’s not a big payout; they travel the distance because the IGRA is a family and it’s a safe place for LGBTQ that are not accepted in their own communities.

Although the IGRA features “camp events” that are unique to the gay rodeo, like steer decorating, wild drag racing and goat dressing, ten out of the thirteen events are traditional rodeo events, like bull riding, steer riding and barrel racing. Earp hopes that people will get past the stigma of being a gay cowboy and cowgirl, and focus on the heart and skill these competitors demonstrate every time they enter the arena. 

You can see the screening of the award-winning documentary Friday January 26th at 7 p.m. at the High Desert Museum. You can also see Blake Little’s Gay Rodeo Blake Little Photography exhibit now until April 30th. Go to www.highdesertmuseum.org for more information.

Source on the Scene: Tour One of the Nation’s Largest Alpaca Ranches

When Central Oregon Daily’s Chris Biggs was told Alpaca Country Estates Ranch and Bed & Breakfast offer tours, she replied, “Al-pac-a my lunch and head on out,” because like a lot of people she was curious about alpacas and assumed they were much like llamas–boy was she wrong. Although they both come from the camelid family, llamas are nearly twice the size of the average 100 – 200 pound alpaca. Llamas can get up to 450 pounds; they are also territorial and have been used as guard animals, whereas, alpacas are docile in nature and show affection to humans. Check out what else makes these alpacas, that graze the 134 acres, at the Terrebonne ranch.
