Gay Marine’s Election Night Victory Gets Gus Kenworthy’s Attention

From the look of things, Instinct readers were really happy to read about woofy former Marine Neil Rafferty’s big win Tuesday night as he came out on top in the race for the District 54 seat in Alabama’s state House.

In what can only be described as a landslide victory, Rafferty garnered a huge 90% of the vote in his bid to replace retiring state Rep. Patricia Todd, the state’s first openly gay legislator.

News of Rafferty’s triumph caught the attention of folks all over the interwebs, including that of a certain out Olympic skier.

Responding to a tweet celebrating Rafferty winning the seat, hunky Olympic silver medalist Gus Kenworthy offered this invitation: “I have another seat for him.”

He followed that with a blond, bearded emoji face.

No word on whether Rafferty plans on responding to the invitation.

    And is there a reason the newly elected governor of Colorado didn’t receive the same praise? Perhaps it’s because he’s not “wooly” or “hunky”, and married with kids. This sort of reporting further perpetuates the notion that we gay men are ALL about physical beauty and sex. It’s pretty pathetic.
