Out Freeskier Gus Kenworthy Is “Mean Girls” Slutty Mouse For Halloween, Has Major Instagram Game

"I’m a mouse. Duh!'”

You might think being an openly gay X-Games athlete is no big deal, but in a compelling interview with ESPN, Olympic freeskier Gus Kenworthy revealed the depths of the rejection he felt—from himself and his sport.

But now Kenworthy feels comfortable enough to come out and be his authentic self.

Can we help it if that authentic self is drop-dead gorgeous—and loves to show it off.

Sun's out, buns out! ☀️

Last night Gus posted his Halloween costume online—if you can’t guess, he’s going as TK from Mean Girls. (Which is sort of a coming out move all on it’s own.)

“Halloween costume party at @theeveryhostess & @wowjeremym‘s house tonight!

*Insert applicable Mean Girls quote here: ‘Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it. The hardcore girls just wear lingerie and some form of animal ears… I’m a mouse. Duh!’”

Here’s more from Gus’ glorious Instagram.

All smiles, all day.

We went streaking in the park, skinny dipping in the dark, then had a ménage à trois…
