So I have some pretty big news…. I’m going to the OLYMPICS Y’ALL!! I’m so excited to be heading to South Korea this month to watch all things SPORTS (that’s what’s happening right?) Since I’ve never been before, I thought what better way to prepare for my Olympics debut than to learn and hang with an Olympian! Adam Rippon is an unapologetic figure skater that will be competing this year – and better yet, he’s the first openly gay athlete to compete for the USA in the Winter Games! Gossip unfurls as we discuss Grindr, Mike Pence, and what it really takes to be an Olympian.

Find Adam (and cheer him on this month!):

  1. Great video….shot and edited beautifully and great connection and interview…very relaxed and real! Excellence! <3

  2. I'm so jealous that you got to hang out with Adam Rippon, Tyler! It must have been fun! If anyone could teach me to skate, I'd want it to be Adam and he's such a fun, kind, and sassy person!

  3. Him or Gus the first openly gay Winter Olympics athlete? Not that the order matters, it is great, just curious since the “title” has been given to both by some media.

  4. Imagine if I posted a video: Starights on Ice. There would be so much backlash. I understand your gay but do you have to throw it in everyone’s face? It’s not the only thing that defines you
