Olympic Freeskier Gus Kenworthy Comes Out | Out Magazine

Gus Kenworthy is the shit. This is tremendous news. Welcome to the team!

Olympic athlete and top-ranked, 24-year-old freeskier Gus Kenworthy is on the cover of ESPN and he’s telling the world finally that he’s gay. He’s the face of the X Games and is considered the “top freeskier on the planet.” He won Olympic silver at Sochi, but that didn’t mean that Kenworthy felt confident that his teammates or others would support him.”I never got to be proud of what I did in Sochi because I felt so horrible about what I didn’t do,” Kenworthy says. “I didn’t want to come out as the silver medalist from Sochi. I wanted to come out as the best freeskier in the world.”Although he says that he’s known he was gay since he was 5, he only started coming out to his friends and family two years ago, according to the story.”I was insecure and ashamed,” he says. “Unless you’re gay, being gay has never been looked at as being cool. And I wanted to be cool.”Kenworthy says he was always asked about girlfriends and part of the stress was that he wanted a “TV boyfriend, explaining: “That’s actually something I want so bad — a TV boyfriend.”(We also remember when he adopted those cute puppies, and everyone wanted to be his friend.)It turns out this story by Alyssa Roenigk is part of ESPN’s ongoing series exploring what it means to be an openly gay athlete at the moment and will include stories focused on Derrick Gordon, Megan Rapinoe, Chris Mosier, and others.

Living myself in an open relationship, I am all for us structuring what works in our own lives. And I am sure that multiple partners living in a relationship are faced with a different set of challenges than those of us in a traditional one. These boys seem to have figured it out.Via The Mirror:

Sebastian, 29, said: “We definitely see kids in our future. We would love to have three children altogether of our own genetics if possible and we have a plan on how we're going to make that happen.”We have really supportive family and friends around us who want to help us conceive.”Shayne has two sisters who have offered to carry our children for us and my sister will hopefully donate her eggs too.”Adam and Shayne met in 2009 and the pair got married two and a half years later.After a year of wedded life, they met Sebastian in a nightclub in September 2012 and immediately hit it off.

So, what are your thoughts? If you are in a polyamorous relationship, tell us about it!And check out a video on the three men via Meet the three men in a polyamorous relationship planning to start a family with their sisters' help – Mirror Online.
