Who says you can’t find love on Instagram? Kenworthy, an Olympic freeskier, and Wilkas, an actor, shared their improbable, digital love story to OUT as one of the cover couples in our annual Love issue back in February. Kenworthy was still in the closet, but taken with the Gayby star, he kept up the pursuit despite Wilkas’s initial hesitation: “A year later, when Gus reached out again for a drink,” he explained, “I thought, OK, I’ll do it. Look at his picture — he’s adorable. Why not do this?” The rest is history, unfiltered.
