Who doesn’t love a cowboy?
This coming Sunday, This Is Life With Lisa Ling on CNN airs “Gay Rodeo” at 10PM ET/PT.
Via press release:
We all know the image of the American cowboy: He’s tough, self-reliant, stoic, the epitome of masculine. Could he be all that— and gay?
Lisa will explore the world of the International Gay Rodeo Association, which today has over 5,000 registered members.
Here, in Santa Fe, Lisa will meet people united by two unlikely qualities: their love of Western culture and their homosexuality.
Many have braved childhoods in the most homophobic regions of the country; some are still in the closet; and others are fastening their chaps for the very first time. But all are bucking stereotypes, proving that you don’t have to be straight to rope, ride, and wrestle a steer.
Ling will also be hosting a Twitter Town Hall live during the broadcast. Follow #ThisIsLife
