Sometimes he looks like a young, redheaded Ryan Reynolds. Other times, a ginger Justin Timberlake. There’s also a bit of Riverdale‘s KJ Apa in there, nd some Prince Harry of course. No matter how you slice it, though, Shawn Barber is ADORABLE. The Canadian pole vault world champion and former Olympian came out as gay in a post to Facebook this morning, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome into the fold.
“Gay and proud! Thank you to my parents for being such a great support. I continue to grow as a person and have a great support group. My parents are my greatest support and have helped me through a lot recently. To my friends, you are always my friends and i love you too!”
We love you, too Shawn!
Oh, I could just lick those ginger pits ALL NIGHT. (via Towleroad)
