SLATE/ OUTWARD: The queer internet was dominated on Thursday by backlash to Nico Hines’ exploitative Daily Beast story on athletes’ use of sex apps in Rio, with condemnation from LGBTQ press-watchers (including us here at Outward) being universal. But, likely for reasons relating to safety and focus, we’ve heard relatively little from athletes themselves. That changed Thursday afternoon when Amini Fonua, an Olympic swimmer and gay man representing Tonga at the Rio games, let fly a tweet storm that powerfully captures the damage this story will cause.
