Check out openly gay Olympian Gus Kenworthy’s new Head & Shoulders shampoo commercial

Remember when Martina Navratilova was essentially the only out and proud pro athlete competing in her sport?

While most pro athletes – especially the men – remain in the closet, more and more are coming out outside of the major team sports of baseball, football and basketball.

Among them are Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy.

And he’s getting endorsements!

Gus, whose boyfriend is the handsome and talented actor Matthew Wilkas, is features in a new commercial for Head & Shoulder Shampoo. I think it is pretty damned cool.

Check it out!

2 Remarks

  1. I’d spend money just to watch Gus shower.

    :)

  2. I like the openness etc. I don’t know if the message (or better said, the particular word) that we are a kind of a separate “community” in contrast to being part of the society in general that we live in, is good. Thus I like to think that we try to be seen as part of society, with equal rights regardless of out sexual orientation (and to be fair and we know it, we LGBT’s can be as different as people in society in general). Also this IMO influences the adoption of the idea that you don’t have to be part of “our community” to support LGBT’s egalitarian causes or “belong” to reach the needed understanding for such support. This doesn’t deny that we may have developed some particular and typical cultural expressions but again, they don’t necessarily can be enjoyed just by LGBT’s people.
