"Just a bruised peach", the caption read.

The athlete, 26, smooched his actor beau, Matthew Wilkas, ahead of his run in PyeongChang, South Korea, in a moment that was captured by NBC cameras and praised by many who are hailing the kiss as historic.

Canadian pair skater Eric Radford became the first out athlete to win an Olympic Gold when he won the Figure Skating event at the ongoing Games last week. Kenworthy didn't realize the moment was televised until the following day, and he was glad that it was. I never saw a gay athlete kissing their boyfriend at the Olympics.

He later came out in an ESPN interview in 2015.

Greyhound to discontinue all north BC Routes
The Passenger Transportation Board has approved Greyhound Canada's request to eliminate passenger bus service in Northeast B.C. In its decision the board says it can't force Greyhound to incur losses indefinitely.


This isn't Kenworthy's first injury of the Olympics - he previously revealed that he had broken his thumb. "I now have an OVERWHELMING desire to post Instagram fashion shows, google stock imagines of corn, and paint on the balcony of my dorm in the Olympic village". "To be able to do that, see this mark of affection on television for the whole world, it is incredible". "The only way to really change perceptions, to break down barriers, break down homophobia, is through representation".

Kenworthy competed over the weekend despite his injuries but did not land a spot on the podium in men's ski slopestlye. And that's definitely not something I had as a kid.

One Twitter user wrote, "That attractive casual kiss between @guskenworthy and his boyfriend on @NBCOlympics - I'm old enough to understand how significant that is". "And I don't think we would be anywhere near where we are without all the hard work that the Human Rights Campaign has done". "Being here now, out and proud and living my life authentically, I'm walking away more fulfilled without a medal than I did at the last Games with one", Kenworthy told fans.
