It's time for another Strand comedy night, with an all-star cast of amazing comics and a critically important theme. In the words of the show producers themselves, «Sex is history and gay sex is neglected. This show celebrates the life of queer sex from the first African Queens to surefire homosexual Mike Pence. Each show highlights an artifact of queer sex and a lineup of comedians talking about queer sex!» The night's talent will include Ashley Gavin, Ian Fidance, Sydnee Washington, Elsa Waithe, Patrick Holbert, Sam Morrison, and the host of the evening, Philip Henry.

Join us in the Rare Book Room for a very special night of gay comedy and LGBTQ celebration!
