Figure skater Adam Rippon has been tearing it up at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, in which he became the first openly gay U.S. male athlete to medal. Beyond this, he’s become a social media sensation thanks to his dazzling on-ice performances and his out, proud, and hilarious tweets.

But Rippon’s not alone in repping American queerness at the Winter Olympics. He’s got the support of fellow gay Olympian Gus Kenworthy.

Freeskier Gus Kenworthy didn’t win a medal after his ski slopestyle event. However, when he was greeted by his boyfriend Matthew Wilkas, he made LGBTQA history as this touching moment was broadcast on live national television.

He even made a fan of Britney Spears.

But Kenworthy had caught Gay Twitter’s attention ahead of this event, thanks to this tweet where he threw shade at homophobic VP Mike Pence.

Later, he shared a shot, which is a sign of how hard Olympians work, a Call Me By Your Name shout out, and a total thirst trap.

Oh to be an ice pack on that peach.
