No Pride at The W.H. But Plenty from Out Olympian Gus Kenworthy on His Undies

Trump broke with another tradition at the White House besides having not having honor for the heritage of the place and refused to honor Pride or even mention the word. I remember President Obama with his Vice President Joe Biden walking down the outside of the Oval Office in the White House with two humongous Pride flags. We won't see this again may be forever unless LGBTQ people understand our political system together with the millennials and know that voting for someone you don't love (you are not supposed to love politicians anyways) keeps you from getting the one the ass crazy dude loves.

Olympic freeskier Gus Kenworthy one of the celebrities who is “celebrating him selves” by stripping down for an inclusive Pride month effort.

Online underwear retailer MeUndies unveiled their new rainbow polka dot designs May 23 with a colorful spread featuring Kenworthy and Kiyoko for its “Celebrate Yourself” campaign. But the photo series ― which also features musician Big Freedia and YouTube personalities B. Scott, Stevie Boebi and Ally Hills ― isn’t just an excuse to spot the stars in their skivvies. For every pair of underwear sold, MeUndies will donate $1 to the Los Angeles LGBT Center to help expand its youth center. 

Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Chief Marketing Officer Jim Key told HuffPost that underwear was “a very appropriate choice” for their new campaign, which was launched to coincide with Pride month in June. “We lift, support and comfort people of all types and ages,” he quipped, noting that much like MeUndies’ polka dot designs, “we’re bold and courageous.”

Given the current political climate, Key said, funding for homeless LGBTQ youth services is more at risk than ever, which is one of the many reasons he’s grateful for the MeUndies campaign. It’s a particularly pertinent issue in Los Angeles, where about 40 percent of the homeless youth population in the city identify as LGBTQ, he said.
