Olympic Skier and Puppy-Lover Gus Kenworthy Comes Out on the Cover of ESPN
Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy marked a monumental moment in LGBT history this week when he came out on the cover of ESPN's "Being Out" issue. He begins the interview with a brave, short sentence: "I guess I should start by saying, 'I'm gay.'" While a slew of celebrities have come out over the years, Gus joins a very small group of openly gay athletes, which includes football player Michael Sam and Olympic diver Tom Daley. You might remember the skier from the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi — he made headlines for rescuing stray dogs and even bringing a few home with him. Read on to see the adorable tweets he used to announce the news, then fall in love with him by looking at his cutest pictures.
