Since qualifying, competing and medalling at the 2018 Winter Olympics, the openly gay figure skater has been making headlines not only for his charming personality, but for his advocacy on behalf of the LGBTQ.
Johnson and Ribbon also shared a video on Facebook encouraging LGBTQ youth to run for U.S. office and follow their athletic dreams.
“We’re here, we’re queer and we aren’t going anywhere, so run for office, pursue your athletic dreams, and don’t let anyone tell you you can’t do anything. You are a glamazon warrior ready for the runway,” the two traded off saying in the video.
