Sheepish Daniel Hirsch

Dr. Pete Woolinsky is eager to analyze his research on domesticated ovines that display male-oriented breeding behavior and physiological differentiation—aka “gay sheep.” But when drunken college pranksters kidnap one of his ram subjects a media frenzy ensues throwing his work in jeopardy. The subsequent public backlash to Pete’s research unites PETA, conservative Christian talk radio hosts, LGBTQ bloggers, and even his own newly questioning teenage daughter. Inspired by true events, Sheepish tells a story about the delicate business of studying the science of sexuality in a politically rambunctious age.
