Could Diver Aidan Faminoff Be Our Next Gay Olympic Idol?

These photos of the young athlete are a good start.

Olympian Greg Louganis is considered one of the greatest divers in history and an icon in the LGBT community. Decades after Louganis’ run in the Olympics, Tom Daley took over as the latest gay aquatic athlete to inspire young queer kids around the world.

But there’s a new kid in town, and luckily for us, he’s not camera shy.

Day one got me feeling ??
