Queens & Cowboys
A Straight Year on the Gay Rodeo
First screened in October 2014
Director: Matt Livadary. Documentary about the mostly LGBT-identified participants in the International Gay Rodeo Association, chronicled over the course of a year's worth of competitions. Screenplay: Matt Livadary.

Twitter Capsule: The unusual idiom counts for a lot and the movie has an appealing warmth, even if it hovers close to the surface.

VOR:   Effectively challenges stereotypes of who can or can't hack it on the rodeo circuit, and who can or can't be gay. Utterly conventional in execution. Goes down easy. Almost too easy?
