Adam Rippon shares adorable photo with boyfriend
US figure skater Adam Rippon has shared a heartwarming photo with his boyfriend Finnish-born realtor Jussi-Pekka Kajaala.
The US ice skater, who is the first openly gay person to win Dancing with the Stars, uploaded the snap on Wednesday (November 14).
Rippon simply posted a series of emojis alongside the photo.
” ♂️ ♂️ ,” he wrote.
The star revealed in May that he is moving in with his boyfriend Finnish-born realtor Jussi-Pekka Kajaala.
Rippon met his boyfriend on Tinder while at a skating competition in Finland last year.
Speaking to People Magazine in May, Rippon opened up about their relationship.
When asked about what would happen when his boyfriend arrived, the 28-year-old figure skater said without hesitation: “We’ll live together.
“It’s a whole process to move out here, but I think it’s something that we’re both really looking forward to. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
In October, Rippon urged US citizens to vote for Democrats in the US midterm elections.
He spoke out as part of a campaign to get LGBT+ Democrats voted into offices across the country.
“Earlier this year I made history when I became the first openly gay US athlete to win a medal at the Winter Olympics, but I’m not going to be the only LGBTQ person to make history this year, and you have a chance to be a part of it,” Rippon said at the time.
“In 20GayTeen, Democrats have nominated more LGBTQ candidates than ever before. I’m talking about queens on the ballot for statewide, federal and state legislative seats across the country.
“So take five minutes, and go to IWillVote.com, and commit to vote this November.
“The Rainbow Wave can only happen if you’re a part of it.”
