That’s buckin’ gay
Well, howdy. That’s a mighty big and shiny buckle you got there, cowboy. You look like the kinda fella who ain’t averse to a little bit of buckin’ and rasslin’ now and again. And somethin’ in the way that buckle hangs tells me you got a sensitive side, too. Bet you want to know why a great outdoor adventure like rodeo should be dominated by macho, intolerant, small-minded brutes. Well, maybe you shouldn’t be so quick to judge, pardner. ’Cause, as a matter of fact, the Capital Crossroads Gay Rodeo Association’s annual Sierra Stampede just happens to be dominated by macho, tolerant, big-minded fruits! Oh yeah, you heard right, baby. We’re talkin’ steers and queers. We’re talkin’ goat dressin’ and “drag” racin’ like you’ve never seen. We’re talking about knowin’ how to live a lifestyle. Start with the Sierra Stampede on Saturday in Rio Linda (848 Elkhorn Boulevard, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and then hit the Rainbow Festival on Sunday in Midtown Sacto. Tickets cost $12.50 in advance or $15 at the gate. Visit www.sierrastampede.org for more information and saddle up, friend.
