Gus Kenworthy first made headlines for competing as a freestyle skier in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. He won a silver medal in the Men’s slopestyle and went on to compete in numerous other championships over the years. Namely, Kenworthy won several medals at the X Games, as well as a gold medal in the 2020 Calgary Ski World Cup.
In October 2015, at the height of his career as a skier, Kenworthy came out as gay – which felt like a historic shift for Olympic athletes. Given that athletes rely so heavily on sponsorships, there was always a sense that coming out as LGBTQ+ could potentially drive sponsors away. However, this began to shift around 2015, and Kenworthy was one of the athletes responsible for this change.
Since retiring from sports, Kenworthy has been focusing on several other endeavors that include being an actor, model, TV personality, and social media influencer. As an actor, Kenworthy’s credits include appearances on American Horror Story: 1984, Will & Grace, and Sharknado 5: Global Swarming. He also appeared as himself on shows like RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 4, The Real O’Neals, and the recent Netflix docuseries Coming Out Colton.
