PICS: The 10 Out Male Olympic Athletes to Root for at Rio 2016

Visiting Rio? Don’t forget to download our gay guide to the Rio Olympics!

You may not realize this, but there will be 44 openly LGBT athletes at the Rio 2016 Olympic Summer Games — almost twice as many as were at the 2012 London Games. That includes 33 women, 1 trans woman (South African runner Caster Semenya) and 10 men. So while you’re busy channel surfing or watching the Games in person, be sure to watch and cheer on these 10 male athletes — it shouldn’t be too hard to watch them seeing as they’re all both talented and easy on the eyes.

WARNING: One of the shots below is somewhat NSFW because it shows one of the athlete’s butts — ¡escandolo!
