Gus Kenworthy Thirst Traps Donors for His AIDS/LifeCycle Campaign

And we're not complaining!

Gus Kenworthy is sexy and sneaky for a very good cause.

Last week the Olympic freeskier posted what might be his most, uh, revealing photo yet, writing, “just another headless torso for your grid… k now that I’ve gotten your attention please donate to my AIDS/LifeCycle campaign!”

The 27-year-old activist pledged to raise $1 million in his first AIDS/LifeCycle ride, an annual event raising funds and awareness to fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic. He’s currently the lead donor with more than $225,000 raised.

The seven-day, 545-mile bike ride along the California coast kicked off Sunday in San Francisco.

Co-produced by the Los Angeles LGBT Center and San Francisco AIDS Foundation, AIDS/LifeCycle is designed to advance their shared interest to reduce new HIV infections and improve the quality of life for people living with HIV/AIDS.

Kenworthy came out publicly as gay in 2015 after winning a silver medal at the 2014 Sochi Games. While he didn’t reach the podium at the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, his televised smooch with boyfriend Matt Wilkas is believed to be the first same-sex kiss aired during the Olympics.

Ride on, Gus!
