Film: QUEENS & COWBOYS: A Straight Year on the Gay Rodeo Has Made It’s Financial Production Goal!

by Accidental Bear

“An honest to God rodeo with just a little more panache.”

“QUEENS & COWBOYS: A Straight Year on the Gay Rodeo” will chronicle the 2011 season of the International Gay Rodeo Association through the lens of a straight, city-raised filmmaker. Roping and riding in 15 rodeos across north America this year alone, the IGRA’s courageous cowboys and cowgirls brave challenges both in and out of the arena on their quest to qualify for the World Finals in October. And along the way, they’ll bust every stereotype in the book.

But it’s more than just cowboys and rodeos. The film will expose the world to the unsung LGBT community of both the old and new west.  Examining where our country currently stands on the issue of gay rights, this uniquely American subject will explore how far we’ve come, and what challenges we still have ahead.

Please remember that Kickstarter is all or nothing – if we don’t reach our goal by August 31st at 9PM/pst, we don’t get any funds! So any help is appreciated – whether that’s $1, sending this Kickstarter link to one person or just pressing “Like” on Facebook. Regardless, thank you for taking the time to support this project!

UPDATE: Goal has been met. Yeee-haaw!
