Since the age of 11 Adam Romanik, President and founder of the Keystone State Gay Rodeo Association, has been paraplegic. Adam began riding at the age of 4, but at the age of 11 Adam was diagnosed with a spinal cord tumor and the procedure to remove the tumor left Adam paraplegic. Despite this Adam has pressed on to not only give a voice to riders who would normally not be heard, but to also continue doing what he loves. About a year after the surgery Adam was pulling himself back onto the saddle and riding again. He competed in his first Gay Rodeo in 2009 and Adam would go on to become president of the Keystone State Gay Rodeo Association in 2015.
