Out Olympian Gus Kenworthy and Boyfriend Share Historic Kiss

2018 Winter Olympics TV guide The events to watch Friday night

"The only way to really change perceptions, break down homophobia, break down barriers is through representation and that's definitely not something I had as a kid".

For Kenworthy and his ever-growing legion of fans, that was a victory no gold medal will ever replace.

"I think that's incredible". That's something that I didn't have as a kid. "Hey [Gus Kenworthy], gimme, gimme more on the slopes today!" the pop superstar tweeted at the skier with the hashtag, "It's Gus, b-" she tweeted.

"That's something that I wanted at the last Olympics, to share a kiss with my boyfriend at the bottom [of the hill]", Kenworthy said.

"The hematoma's much more painful than the thumb", Kenworthy said.

"It was the tiniest kiss in the world".

ABLV said in a statement in response on Tuesday that FinCen had referred to unfounded and misleading information about the bank. It did not comment on the investigation directly, although noted it has a "zero tolerance policy" on corruption.

But taking a moment to think about it, Wilkas realized that yes, he was probably part of something historic: a kiss between a gay athlete and his boyfriend at a mass audience spectacle like the Olympics, shown during network primetime television.

The moment was shared by NBC's broadcast during its Olympic coverage throughout the United States. The kiss with Wilkas fit perfectly with the rest of the script. He demonstrated very little of the explosion or style that has made him a six-time world champion, and failed to complete any of his three runs in the finals without a major, score-wrecking error. He was ranked low in each of the final runs and did not medal.

With his back to the slopestyle course, where he had finished dead last among the 12 finalists, the late-afternoon sun began to slip toward the tree line. On this day, though, Kenworthy wasn't only being noticed for the way he skied. "Does it hit me?" he says.

To his friends and family, too.

To Kenworthy and his boyfriend, though, it felt as natural as could be.

American Gus Kenworthy, whose solidarity with figure skater Adam Rippon and defiance toward vice president Mike Pence made him simultaneously a target of derision of Trump supporters and a hero in the gay community, failed to medal in slopestyle skiing Sunday, denying him a second consecutive podium finish after his silver at the Sochi Games.
