Olympian Gus Kenworthy has “no patience” for Trump and Pence and their attacks on LGBT rights

Olympic silver medalist Gus Kenworthy, who became the first openly gay male extreme sports athlete two years ago, spoke to Don Dahler of CBS News.

Here’s what Gus had to say about Donald Trump and Mike Pence: “When we have people elected into office that believe in conversion therapy and are trying to strip trans rights in the military and do these things that are directly attacking the LGBT community, I have no patience. I am so proud to be from the U.S. and to be from a country where you are able to voice your political opinions and stand up for what you believe in and I think that when you have a platform you have to use it especially if you feel very strongly about something.”

One Remark

  1. Good for Gus Kenworthy for standing up in what he believes in. The LBGT Olympians like Gus and Adam Rippon make me so proud.
