The Keystone State Gay Rodeo Association will be holding their annual royalty competition, February 24th at 704 Lounge (704 3rd Street, Harrisburg) starting at 3 pm. What is Rodeo Royalty? The royalty program consists of the royalty candidates of Mr., Ms., Miss, and Mister KSGRA. The royalty candidates help fundraise and promote the organization and rodeo throughout the local and regional community and throughout the US. Those that are sashed as royalty also have the ability to compete for the IGRA (International Gay Rodeo Association) Royalty team in November 2018.
Oftentimes at the mention of the word rodeo mental images of blue-jeaned, mud-splattered male wranglers usually come to mind. International Gay Rodeo Association (IGRA) president Candy Pratt, however, doesn’t just surpass that misconception, she shatters it.

Think rodeo! Are you a little bit country? Put on your boots, dust off your hat and get ready to go Boot Scootin’ Boogie! Since 1985, the International Gay Rodeo Association has been roping and riding all across the United States. IGRA, based out of Denver, Colorado, is made up of 20 local associations. Each of the associations hold unique events — including rodeos, dances, trail rides, and horse shows — for the country cowboy and cowgirl lover in all of us.
Think rodeo! Well with fall creeping up you might be looking for ideas to do on the weekends. Here’s something you may have done a long time ago or something you have never done– Trail Riding. Think of it … long walks in the woods with new friends where you just sit and let something else do the walking.
Let me introduce you to Irene Benedetti – a short, slim, soft-spoken Italian woman who hails from South Philly, but could be from any Italian neighborhood in any major city. At a recent dinner party, someone asked her what it was like growing up as an out lesbian in the early 1960s. You see, Irene is now a senior, and most LGBT activists of today only know a little of our elders’ stories. In our community, LGBT seniors are largely invisible. Our activists talk about or mention Stonewall and all it symbolizes, but that symbolism is rarely personalized.
