Gus Kenworthy had a chat with Conan O’Brien about being out in the sports world and how he almost came out in a big way while participating in the 2014 Winter Olympics in notoriously antigay Russia.

He’s all adorable awkwardness and dimples while talking about his journey, and good for Conan for being an ally and giving Gus the space to share.

We’ll leave it up to you to watch the clip and discover the Stunt Queen move he almost pulled, but it’s safe to say it would’ve been an iconic moment.

Now that we know, we’re kinda bummed that he didn’t do it.
