There is only one thing that I know of that is more American than Apple pie, hot dogs, baseball and Chevy trucks (before the company filed chapter 11), and that's the IGRA. That's right. The International Gay Rodeo Association. This year, Kensington Grace is trying to buck the system by becoming the youngest Grand Marshall in Gay Rodeo history. While she doesn't technically meet the qualifications, that's not stopping us. We know that her press packet is sure to win the committee members hearts (that, and the online petition that has started will surely do the trick). If not, I'm pretty certain that they will be creating a new category in her honor.
For those of you that have never attended a gay rodeo event, there are several still left in the season before the finals in Albuquerque, New Mexico this October. We'll be trying to make the Philly competition at the end of this month... and our little cowgirl will be obtaining additional signatures to ensure that she get's the crown (and the buckle).
Special thanks to Uncle Mark, Aunie Aggie and her cousin Mason for the cowgirl dress. We're off to practice our Team Roping skills. Moo Moo by little buckaroo!
