Nine weeks before winning two silver medals at the Rio 2016 Olympic Summer Games, 24-year-old U.S. gymnast Danell Leyva posted two Instagram videos (below) in which he wore a “Make America Gay Again” tank-top (wait, when was America ever gay?) and shared his thoughts on the Orlando Shooting. We appreciate his support; we also appreciate the incredibly hot sexts of him that surfaced sometime around his premiere at the 2012 London Olympics — supportive AND sexy? Yes, please.
In the videos, the Cuban-American athlete highlights the importance of LGBT safe spaces and trans rights, adding “I am not part of the LGBT community, but it is imperative that those of us not in the community to do our best to show them all the kindness and understanding they need.”

Yes, that’s right folks — he isn’t gay or bisexual (in fact, he recently spent some time in Rio with his girlfriend) — but he’s aware of his gay fans and even went so far as to tell his 100,000 Instagram followers that if they didn’t like his videos, they should unfollow him.
But our love of Leyva isn’t just limited to his support, it’s also limited to his Olympic body. You may recall that some sexts surfaced of him around the 2012 Olympics. As a flashback of sorts, we’ve shared those images below.
These sexts were just one of several sexy shoots he did around that same time, including the tasteful nudes he took for ESPN magazine’s 2012 Body Issue and some hot pics he took with Lifetsyle Miami that are worth viewing as well. We also have our own gallery of the thirst-inducing gymnast as well.
