For instance, this weekend the International Gay Rodeo Association will holds its "World Gay Rodeo Finals" at the Will Rogers Memorial Center's John Justin Arena in Fort Worth. So go ahead and use whatever outdated stereotypes you wish to describe this to yourself. However, just think about what a boost such an event could do for Dallas/Fort Worth since there's no way Jerry Jones can publicly humiliate us on the national stage by mismanaging this national event.
This weekend's event will award world champion status to LGBT athletes in a number of riding and roping competitions starting on Friday. The festivities stretch into the night with ballroom dancing and a "Royalty Contest" at the Hilton Arlington. The weekend concludes with massive "finals party" on Saturday night and an awards ceremony to the rodeo winners on Sunday. Tickets are $15 for one day or $25 for the entire weekend and can only be purchased at the box office.
