The World Gay Rodeo Finals debuted this weekend at the South Point hotel-casino's arena.

The two-day event moved from Fort Worth, Texas, and showcases some of the best riders from around the world.

"A lot of things are different about regular rodeo as it's called and gay rodeo, the biggest difference is we allow men and women to compete in all events," said Robert Thurtell, World Gay Rodeo director. "So we have women bullriders and steer riders and we have men barrel racers, things like that."
