Alabama's Gay Rodeo

Alabama's Gay Rodeo

The video, photos, audio and articles below are part of my Gay Rodeo series. So what's an Alabama reporter doing in Texas? I learned a man in Birmingham, Alabama wanted to start up his own gay rodeo by 2014. It would be the first one in the state. So, being new to the rodeo world, I was curious to see what a gay rodeo was like and what possible challenges this Alabama man could face in starting up his own gay rodeo in the state. As I learned, it's just like a "traditional" rodeo with bull riding and calf roping, but it's open to the LGBT community. And, as you can see below, it features some unique events.
