Johnny Weir and husband Victor Voronov
appeared last weekend at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against
Defamation's (GLAAD) Media Awards in New York City, where they
presented on the group's efforts to legalize gay marriage.
In introducing Voronov, Weir joked: “I
liked it, so I put a ring on it.”
Weir, a two-time Olympian who recently
returned to competitive figure skating, and Atlanta-area lawyer
Voronov capped off 2011 by tying the knot in a civil ceremony at the
New York City Courthouse.
The 27-year-old Weir last month told
New York's the Daily News that he has pushed back plans for a
big summer wedding in favor of a winter wonderland reception.
At Saturday's awards show, Weir also
adlibbed a portion of his presentation on GLAAD's work to help
legalize marriage equality in various states when he encouraged the
crowd to “check out our registry – Barneys and Hermes.” (The
