Gay Rodeo: A Celebration of Western Rural Heritage and Gay Culture

Thursday, October 24, 2019 at 6:00pm

Museum of Natural and Cultural History
1680 E 15th Avenue, Eugene, OR

Gay rodeo reveals a long-marginalized segment of the western community, blending rural heritage with the courage, humor, and expression of urban gay America. Join folklorist Craig Miller on a journey into the history of gay rodeo, and explore the values that help unify it as a community. 

 

Miller's talk is cosponsored by the University of Oregon Folklore and Public Culture Program; Department of History; LGBT Education and Support Services, and Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Oregon Folklife Network, a division of the Museum of Natural and Cultural History, is a special contributor to this event. ​
