The High Sierra Rodeo Association is an IGRA-affiiliate gay rodeo association in Washoe County, Nevada. It is considered as the regional successor to the Comstock Gay Rodeo Association, the first gay rodeo association in the United States, which primarily organized the National Reno Gay Rodeo for the Washoe County area. The CGRA was disestablished following the end of the Reno rodeo's 9-year run in 1984.
The HSRA was formed by Lloyd Mitch Gill (who participates in Miss IGRA competitions as "DeShannon") in 2003, and was able to bring the IRGA Finals to Reno in 2006 to celebrate 30 years of gay rodeo. It locally organizes the Comstock Stampede rodeo.
