Host Steve Harvey even shares a kind word for queer kids who have lost their homes.

Survey says!

Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy will take the stage of "Celebrity Family Feud" this weekend to raise money for the Happy Hippie Foundation, a nonprofit serving homeless LGBTQ youth.

The silver medalist came out in 2015. On Sunday, his father, mother, and two brothers will help him compete for his charity against "The Talk" co-host Sheryl Underwood.

"When I came out to my family, they were completely loving and supportive," Kenworthy tells "Feud" host Steve Harvey. "But that's not a reality for a lot of LGBT youth. When they tell their parents, a lot of kids end up on the streets."

Harvey--who hasn't had the best history when commenting on LGBTs, women, or other groups--still showed sympathy for young queer kids facing homelessness.

"I don't get that part," he says. "If it's my kid, it's my kid. I'm not going stop loving my kid."

But there was at least one string attached. "Now if your ass ain't working, you're going have to get out," he says, laughing.
