Life is too messy and complicated not to find the humor baked into every moment — especially when you’re queer. Whether it’s taking a pug to conversion therapy, working out relationship drama in the midst of a potential threesome, being trapped in a bathroom with your oversharing boss, gulping down wine during shiva to avoid coming out, or worrying about squeaky-clean sex on a date, these shorts remind us that we have to laugh because in the end . . . shit happens.
