UGRA is a nonprofit organization that supports rodeo and country lifestyle while raising money for the community and various causes.

About Us

Golden Spike Gay Rodeo Association (GSGRA) was founded in 1979 and operated as a group of local country western gays helping out the community. They were admitted to IGRA 10 years later in 1989 as the Utah Gay Rodeo Association (UGRA, by this time Golden State Gay Rodeo Association in California, owned the acronym GSGRA) however, they didn’t produce a rodeo until 2000. The association dissolved in 2006.

On January 4, 2016 the Utah Gay Rodeo Association (UGRA) was brought back to life, UGRA plans to be admitted to IGRA by Summer 2016.

We enjoy rodeo and most importantly have fun!
