Join the ski club.
It sucks to live in a world where people like Kim Davis can dictate your rights, but thanks to athletes like Gus Kenworthy, we’re one step closer to true equality!
You may remember the 24-year-old skier from Sochi thanks to his silver medal and/or puppy-saving capabilities, but Gus is also going down in history as one of the first Olympians to come out at gay!
We couldn’t be happier for the out-and-proud hottie, who revealed the big news on the cover of ESPN magazine Thursday! He tweeted simply:
In 2012, there were only 23 openly gay athletes, so we’re beyond ecstatic to have Gus as representation in the sports world.
