Gus Kenworthy was the Grand Marshall at last weekend’s Miami Beach Pride.

Over 100,000 people turned out for the celebration’s 10th anniversary, and to see Gus ride in the parade and partake in the festivities, including some crazy crowd surfing action.

“Pride is so important and Miami does it right,” Gus said from the stage before leaping into the audience. “It’s such an honor to be here!”

Emcees Julie Goldman and Brandy Howard warned people “no package grabbing,” but did encourage them to “feel his butt for me!”

Afterward, Gus posted the selfie video to his Instagram page, along with the caption: “Stoked to [check] ‘Crowd Surf’ off of my bucket list, today! I was semi-nervous I was gonna have a Gretchen Weiner’s moment but thankfully my queer fam had my back! Such a fun day at Miami Beach Gay Pride!”
