EXCLUSIVE: Check out the trailer for the gay wrestling doc ‘Cassandro the Exotico’

Wrestling is about as homoerotic as sports get.

So why has it taken so long to have a few out-queer wrestlers? Meet Saul Armendariz, better known by his stage name Cassandro, Mexico’s out-gay wrestling superstar. As a competitor in the Luca Libra wrestling circuit, Cassandro has earned the nickname the “Liberace of Luca Libre” courtesy of his outrageous, drag-inspired costumes.

Cassandro the Exotico opens in New York July 19 before beginning a national rollout.
