Spanish Olympic figure skater Javier Raya has come out publicly as gay with a sweetness-overload picture of him kissing his boyfriend.
The 25-year-old pro athlete shared the photo on his Instagram with the caption:
‘Many of you know, others can imagine by the pictures and others will be surprised, but I have to say that right now I feel like the luckiest person in the world! Thank you @nicholsondrew.’
More photos of the adorable couple are found on Raya’s boyfriend, Andrew Alan Nicholson’s Instagram profile:
Raya competed at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi and placed 25th.
Here’s a quick look at the magic he does on ice:
Raya is the second major Olympic athlete from Spain who have come out recently.
‘I hope my coming out serves to break a taboo within the sport,’ Gutierrez said. ‘You have to be judged not by your sexuality but by your sporting merit.’
