Olympic free-skier Gus Kenworthy recently told CNN that he does not believe that coming out gay is worthy of media coverage.

The 24-year-old Kenworthy came out last year on the cover of ESPN magazine.

“Someone coming out as gay shouldn't be newsworthy. It shouldn't be warranting a magazine cover or anything like that, which I had as my story for coming out,” Kenworthy said.

“I think down the line, it will make it so that it isn't news. It doesn't matter, so it doesn't have to be something that's a big announcement; just something that is what it is.”

Kenworthy called coming out “scary” because “no one in action sports and very few men in sports in general had come out before me.”
