Gay swim squad the Atlanta Rainbow Trout likes its holidays mixed with splashing around the pool. So there they were on Saturday for their Spring Splash meet.

But there were no Easter bunny ears on the more than 100 swimmers in the competition, held at Tech’s Aquatic Center. You’ll have to wait until the St. Nick’s SCM Invitational, which is the annual Christmas tourney hosted by the Trout. That’s when the reindeer antlers and oversized holiday ornaments come out.

Up next for the Trout: A beer bust on April 22 at Cowtippers.
