Rustle up your western-style shirt, boots, chaps and jeans (Uh, how about a T-shirt and denim cutoffs? It’s hot out there.).

Gay cowboys and cowgirls are expected to converge in Riverside County this weekend for the annual Palm Springs Hot Rodeo. Many will spend the better part of their days May 3-5 ropin’, ridin’ and entertaining in rodeo events in Banning. Then, they will head to Palm Springs and Cathedral City for evenings of ropin’ … partying at various clubs and venues.

The big dance is planned for 7 p.m. Saturday, May 4, in the parking lot at Spurline Video Lounge, 200 S. Indian Canyon Drive in Palm Springs ( Admission is $10.
