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

Thursday, October 24 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 Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, University of Oregon Department of History, the Folklore and Public Culture Program, and LGBT Education and Support Services. Included with regular admission; free for members and UO ID card holders. Show your Oregon Trail or other EBT card for an admission discount.
