The Rio Olympics are making history this year with how many out LGBT athletes are competing—and a single selfie takes the gold for marking the history of the moment.

Olympic American champion Greg Louganis posted a quick shot from Rio with British diver Tom Daley. Louganis made history when he came out as gay and HIV positive in 1988. The icon stood smiling next to Daley, currently one of the world’s most prominent LGBT athletes.
