Scenes from this year’s Palm Springs Hot Rodeo

Every year queer cowboys (and the people who love them) descend on Palm Springs, CA for a rodeo. MEL sent photographer Raphael Chatelain to document the scene last weekend, which included the standard bucking broncos and one seriously psychedelic nun.

Raphael Chatelain is an L.A.-based photographer and filmmaker whose work has appeared in Wallpaper and Dazed.
