Gay Olympian Gus Kenworthy Kissed His Boyfriend On Live TV

“It was such a little kiss...if I’d have known it was a big deal I’d have made out with him.”

This years Winter Olympics have been historic for many reasons -- not only did we have our first two openly gay Olympians in Adam Rippon and Gus Kenworthy, but instead of defining who they were in the context of the Olympics, it only served to add another facet to the public understanding of these men as athletes and as people.

That's why it's so heartwarming to see something as small as a loving kiss between Kenworthy and his boyfriend, Matt Wilkas, be broadcast by NBC on live TV with little fanfare.

While Kenworthy didn't medal, coming in 12th after taking home silver at Sochi, his presence on the Olympic team and his open and honest love for his partner are victories in and of themselves.
