Sports for Gays (and Curious Straights)

TUE // AUG 03 // 09:30PM

Sports for Gays (and Curious Straights) is a sports comedy show for people who don't "get" sports. Join comedian and host Cole Steffensen (and guests!) as we learn about the rules, history, and violent misogyny/homophobia/transphobia at the core of every single sport ever. Also, butts!

It's the Olympics! Join Cole as he asks the big questions: What's the history of queer athletes at the Olympics? Who's the most famous gay athlete? If the Olympics was a person, would it be gay, and if so, why?

Join us and find out!

Representing the nations of Straight and Gay respectively, Becca Stephenson (Buzzfeed) and Otter Lee (Tooning Out the News) will duke it out in Olympic-themed challenges to win the gold.

We'll also have a special guest presentation from comedian/scientist/circus artist Andrea Jones-Rooy!
