Gary Miller, owner of Dallas' Round-Up Saloon who is also a former TGRA president, explained that while men and women compete together in chute-dogging, the top male competitor and the top female competitor both get first place trophy buckles.
Miller encouraged people who might be interested in participating in rodeo come to Fort Worth to see the sport's finest athletes and recommended the camp events for those just starting. "Try goat decorating," Miller said. Miller and his partner, Alan Pierce, have been named honorary grand marshals of the rodeo. Miller joked that it was a role he was getting very used to filling. Two weeks ago, the pair were grand marshals of the Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade. "It's an honor for us since we've been involved since the 1980s," Miller said. Miller was among founding members of Texas Gay Rodeo Association in 1985 and served as its first president. Miller said the Round-Up Saloon sponsors five participants by paying their entry fees. He said rodeo can become an expensive sport, especially for those traveling with their horses. "It's a big deal to trailer one in, especially from the coasts," Miller said. He said the trip takes several days because they have to stop every few hours to exercise the horses.

Alan Pierce and Gary Miller, co-grand marshals with Chris Bengston of this year's Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade, have been partners in life for 26 years, and partners in business for 12. That's how Pierce met the new president of the Texas Gay Rodeo Association, a man from Dallas named Gary Miller. That's a big part of why it just keeps getting better for us, because we have these children and grandchildren in our lives," Miller said. Miller added, "When By then, Miller had been working for several years at The Round-Up Saloon, thanks to his friendship with bar manager Tom Davis. And Pierce, who had worked in construction, too, in Houston, was there to handle most of the rebuilding for the bar, Miller said. Eventually, longtime Round-Up manager Tom Davis died, and Miller took over as bar manager. "We lived through the '80s, through the AIDS crisis when we all got involved to raise funds to help our friends," Miller said. "We have a great venue for events, and it's necessary to continue raising money, so we do it," Miller said. "We enjoy what we do, and we are always trying to think of ways to make things better," Miller said. "We've been very fortunate. Both Miller and Pierce agreed that luck has been on their side over the years, giving the Round-Up a chance to evolve into "a great place to socialize," Miller said. We're not known as a place where there's a lot of fighting in the bar, because we just don't allow that," Miller said. Miller and Pierce said it is a great honor to have been chosen to serve with Bengston this year as grand marshals of Dallas' Pride parade, and Pierce said they feel doubly honored tohave been chosen grand marshals of the Dallas parade and honorary grand marshals of the International Gay Rodeo Association's finals rodeo coming to Fort Worth in October. "It's a good feeling, a really good feeling, when you're chosen by your friends and colleagues for something like this," Miller said.
