Hello newsletter readers!

It's less than a hundred days until the Paris Olympics and we are ramping up!

The Olympics are one of the most queer-friendly sporting events in the world, with out and proud athletes winning medals every four years, and new LGBTQ+ sports heroes rising to the occasion and blowing us all away.

Already this year, we've tracked down 11 queer Olympians to cheer for this year, and we'll be updating our slideshow as more Olympic qualifiers happen and more teams are finalized. You can also be sure that we'll be letting you know when LGBTQ+ athletes have breakthrough moments or win medals.

You can also prep for the Olympics by taking a look back at some of the out medal winners from previous years, and we've got you covered there, whether you want the Tokyo games from 2020, the Beijing games in 2022, or from the 2016 Rio Olympics.

We also have a great interview with 9-1-1 star Oliver Stark, where he sat down with Out Deputy Editor Bernardo Sim to talk about his character's long-suspected bisexuality, the journey to his first kiss with a man, and where he wants the story to go next. It's a terrific interview.

Now, onto the news.

Comment of the Week

We love niamfr’s idea for a project our favorite besties, Sarah Paulson and Pedro Pascal to star in!

"Someone needs to write a mystery thriller where they play a husband and wife whose relationship isn[t all what as seems," she wrote, "Someone can fill in the rest of that, but that's the jist."

Gayest Song of the Week

Get up and get down to the new dance track by Jamie xx and Grammy-winning DJ Honey Dijon (as featured on Beyoncé's "Alien Superstar" song)! "Baddy on the Floor" reminds us of a time when we'd get loose in the club dancing to classic Daft Punk. And we could use some vibes like that right now!
