The Olympics may be over, but Gus Kenworthy is still looking to score.
The 26-year-old freestyle skier took a stab at writing his very own Craigslist “Missed Connections” personal ad aimed at at Ricky Martin and his husband Jwan Yosef this week.
Long story short: Gus and his boyfriend, Matt Wilkas, ran into the couple at the Oscars, where they had a lovely conversation. The dialogue was cut short, however, and now the boys are hoping to reconnect with the power couple.
In an Instagram post, Gus writes:
*Craigslist Missed Connections*
Living La Vida Lonely – m4m (LA, California)
Us: We were wearing black Ralph Lauren tuxedos, mine had little cowboys on it. You: You were also both wearing tuxedos because… well, because it was the Oscar’s and everybody does. You and your husband stood out though. Partly because you’re both gorgeous but also because you’re literally @ricky_martin & @jwanyosef. The four of us chatted and laughed but then, sadly, got separated in the chaos of the Oscar’s. My bf and I searched for you both for the rest of the night but never found you again. In town for a week. Let’s connect.
An encounter may not be outside the realm of possibility either. In a recent interview with Vulture, Martin talked about his hope to see open relationships “normalized” in society.
Speaking of playing Versace’s lover Antonio D’Amico, Martin said:
I want to normalize relationships like this. It’s good for the world; it’s good for me as a gay man with kids. It’s important that we shed some light on power couples like this, even though he was quiet and behind the scenes and he was just there supporting his man for 15 years. I also believe there was a level of homophobia going around in his family where he was hiding, even though he says, “My relationship was very open and free with Gianni.” So I used that as well in front of the camera, and for that, I will always be very thankful.
