Check out Canada’s Pro-Gay Olympics ad featuring the two-man luge!

The Winter Olympics opening ceremony is tomorrow. And to protest Russia’s anti-gay stance, the Canadian Institute of Diversity and Inclusion just put out an ad featuring the two-man luge . . .

Which is probably the most homoerotic sport there is in the winter games, simply because it features one dude lying ON TOP of another dude.

In the commercial, it’s two guys sitting on their sled at the start line, and one’s legs are wrapped around the other, which is just how they have to sit. Then they start sliding back and forth on the ice to build up momentum.

And a message pops up on the screen that says, quote, “The games have ALWAYS been a little gay. Let’s fight to keep them that way.”
