In a new online spot featuring Gus Kenworthy, Samsung shows the openly gay Olympians journey to the games. In the ad, Kenworthy receives messages from his boyfriend and from fans.
“I am so proud of you. I am so happy for you. Cause I know how hard you have worked to get here. You are loved by so many people, Gus,” his boyfriend writes.
A friend also writes: “As a gay man growing up, I think the minute we realize we’re gay – it’s a flaw – but people when they look at you, they think ‘I can do anything and be gay and that there’s nothing wrong with me.’”
