The season of all things rodeo is quickly approaching, and with local rodeos sweeping across the country and the Calgary Stampede 5 weeks away, it’s time to dust off your cowboy boots and kick up your heels.

But if you’re straight, you’re going to have some major competition!

I’m talking about line dancing… And nobody does it better than the gays! But I’ll get back to that…

Last month I saddled an airline seat and made my way to the deserts of Palm Springs for the IRGA Hot Rodeo.

The 3 day extravaganza had the full array of ‘usual’ events but with a few special activities tagged on!

The Drag Race

Real cowboys dressed in drag attempting to riding a very confused calf… Indeed a spectacle to behold!

Now any good rodeo always finishes with a good party… But when the gays are involved the party becomes GREAT!

Jell-O shooters, shirtless hunks, martinis and feather boas.

But besides Fab, what really stole the show?

The line dancing!

Now there is line dancing and then there’s GAY line dancing!

This was more than your standard ‘easy to learn’ boot scootin boogie, this was a full on remix of anything you’ve seen before.

It was the Olympics of the 2 step and the gays were about to win GOLD!


So next time you do-si-do, learn how to follow and pick a gay, you’ll be sure to take homo the prize!
