Diamond State Rodeo Association President and U.S. marine veteran Sandy Bidwell, 68, (R) and her wife, former army national guard veteran and Assistant Rodeo Director, Lisa Smith, 59, dance at the International Gay Rodeo Association's Rodeo In the Rock party in Little Rock, Arkansas, United States April 25, 2015. Contestants at the International Gay Rodeo in Arkansas, a Bible Belt state with a same-sex marriage ban on its books, competed in events from barrel racing to bull riding on the soft soil of a fairground that looked like just any small-scale rodeo held throughout the United States. The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule in June whether to strike down bans on gay marriage nationwide. Arkansas has been one of the front-line states in the battle between cultural conservatives and those seeking expanded rights for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.
