Over the weekend, queer athletes from across the globe flexed their skills and muscles in Las Vegas at Sin City Classic, the world’s largest LGBTQ+ sporting event. This tournament shuffled together a mix of traditional sports, such as wrestling and marathon running, with new games like pickleball. Now that these jocks have hit the showers and headed home, let’s huddle up and run a replay of the various games, races, and matches that dominated Vegas, as well as the parties where these champions celebrated their victories. These athletes play hard, and they gay hard.

Tickle your pickle

This year marked the introduction of the nascent sport “pickleball”. Think of it as playing tennis with a ping-pong paddle.
