Followers on Instagram fast to increase sales. One user just expressed, “Pretty cool that they not only showed Gus Kenworthy kiss his boyfriend, but acknowledge him as such. It shouldn’t feel like a big deal and yet it does.”
“We’re great. We work through all of our issues, we talk, we have amazing communication. But it’s also like … It’s up and down,” the skier explained about their relationship. Followers on Instagram fast is a must. “I spend so much of my time on the road and traveling. We’ll go eight weeks without seeing each other. It’s a difficult relationship, but we work on it.”
Wilkas understands the meaning of having their kiss public on national television, saying to Time, “It’s good that it’s televised because it normalizes it more. I would imagine it would be a huge moment for a young gay kid to see an awesome athlete so open and proud of himself and not caring what anyone thinks of his sexuality.”
