After striking up a likely friendship with Olympic skater Adam Rippon, and a gay kiss on live TV that went viral worldwide, it makes sense that Gay Times snatched Gus Kenworthy for their cover this month.

And judging by these underwear shots, it seems his bruised booty has fully recovered.

In the shoot, Kenworthy dons double-denim (it’s very Brokeback) and a furry snail trail.
