Bowen Yang Gives Good Gay GIF as a Male Exotic Dancer on “SNL”

Guilty as charged!

Saturday Night Live’s 45th season continued Saturday with Chance the Rapper as host and musical guest, and new featured player Bowen Yang got another chance to shine.

In a memorable sketch that did not deadname and misgender Caitlyn Jenner, Chance played Judge Barry, who rules on cases based on his first impressions of the defendants.

Enter Yang as a male exotic dancer serving a lewk that gave Judge Barry no choice but to find him guilty. “Yep,” said the surly stripper, tossing his hair before making a very extra exit—and thus another multipurpose GIF was born for all your queer “We been knew” and “Bye, Felicia” needs.

Speaking of GIFable moments, Jason Momoa made a surprise cameo in the sketch as a former live-in nurse accused of stealing an older woman’s (Kate McKinnon) chandelier earrings, which turned out to be swinging from his nipples!

Bowen is making SNL history as the first Chinese-American performer on NBC’s sketch comedy series, and he’s only the third openly gay male cast member after Terry Sweeney and John Milhiser.
