6. FILM: Queens & Cowboys: A Straight Year on the Gay Rodeo

Funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign, Queens & Cowboys: A Straight Year on the Gay Rodeo is a one-of-a-kind documentary that sheds light on the community tied to the International Gay Rodeo Association. The film, which premieres at the Santa Barbara Film Festival this weekend, traces the 30-year-history of this unique organization, in which LGBT cowboys — and cowgirls — buck all stereotypes through 15 rodeos in their quest to become champion of the new west. Strap on your spurs — it’s going to be a bumpy night in Santa Barbara.
 
Queens & Cowboys: A Straight Year on the Gay Rodeo premieres Friday at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, with an additional screening Saturday at 1 p.m. Watch the trailer below, and find more info about the Santa Barbara Film Festival here. — Daniel Reynolds
