Olympics: Gus Kenworthy and Boyfriend Share Kiss on NBC”

Kenworthy revealed he originally planned to come out on live television at the Sochi Olympic games, where he won a silver medal, backtracking at the last minute, according toThe Hollywood Reporter.

"I'll sing to myself when I'm getting ready, just to keep my heart rate down, keep my thoughts mellow", he told the magazine earlier this week.

"But I think that's awesome, that's something that I wanted at the last Olympics was to share a kiss with my boyfriend at the bottom but I was too scared to do it for myself", he said, per Reuters.

NBC aired footage of Kenworthy kissing Matthew Wilkas shortly before a qualifying run in Sunday's slopestyle event in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

In 2014 at Sochi, Kenworthy had not yet told his parents or friends that he was gay.

Olympian figure skater Adam Rippon and freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy have a new famous fan in pop icon Britney Spears.

On Saturday Twitter users celebrated the televised kiss, with one user writing, "Gus Kenworthy, you're making so many LGBT Americans so very proud of you!"

"Gimme, gimme more on the slopes today!"

"Oh. My. God. Was really not prepared to wake up to this. Thank you for not being in denial, LOVE YOU".
