Description
Meet the director and main subject of "Queens and Cowboys."

"Queens and Cowboys: A Straight Year on the Gay Rodeo" chronicles a complete season of the International Gay Rodeo Association (IGRA). Roping and riding across North America, 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 at the end of the season. Along the way, they'll bust every stereotype in the book.

This award-winning film tells the story of five members of the International Gay Rodeo Association. From Wade Earp, a descendant of cowboy legend Wyatt Earp and one of the best competitors on the circuit; to Char Duran, a female bull rider who's never won a buckle but seems determined to die trying; "QUEENS & COWBOYS" weaves the stories of its protagonists over the course of an entire rabble-rousing year.
