‘We’re here. We’re queer. Get used to it’: Openly Gay Olympic Athletes Tweet Out

Shares

Figure skater superstar Adam Rippon and sexy skier Gus Kenworthy broke social media over the weekend by posting a cute picture of themselves showing love to each other and proudly showing off as the two first openly gay U.S. athletes to participate at the Winter Olympic Games currently being held in Pyeong Chang, South Korea.

The pair even shared a small cheek kiss before the Opening Ceremony highlighting the significance of marching with the massive U.S. team and representing the LGBT community.

The duo tweeted out these messages followed by an Instagram post by Rippon reading “Eat your heart out, Pence”, boiling up the already opened dispute between the skater and U.S. vice president Mike Pence, who has been a longtime opponent of LGBT rights and who has allegedly supported conversion therapy, a discredited practice that proponents claim can make gay people straight. The clash got its highest peak last week when Adam Rippon rejected an invitation to visit Mr. Pence at the Whte House before the Winter Olympic Games started.

 

Anyhow, we sincerely wish the best of luck to our community’s ambassadors at the Winter Olympic Games!
