Out Olympian Gus Kenworthy took to Twitter Wednesday and shared a headless/shirtless photo that unsurprisingly went viral. But the athlete used the moment for a good cause!

In the pic, Kenworthy can be seen holding a beer and wearing nothing but super-short yellow swim trunks that don't leave a lot to the imagination.

"Just another headless torso for your grid," he tweeted, referring to the gay dating app Grindr.

It didn't take long for the pic to quickly spread across Twitter. As of this writing, Kenworthy's post has more than 22,500 likes and 1,500 retweets.

The skier quickly followed up the post with another tweet, turning the moment into a good cause.

"K now that I've gotten your attention, please donate to my AIDS/Life Cycle campaign!" he wrote, adding a link. Click here to donate.
