Two-time Olympian Johnny Weir is set to
marry his boyfriend Victor Voronov on New Year's Eve.
The 27-year-old Weir, who only came out
gay roughly a year ago in his memoir Welcome to my World, told
that the pair will tie the knot on Saturday, presumably in New York.
“I'm getting married on New Year's
Eve,” Weir said. “His name is Victor, he's kind of everything
that I've ever looked for and aspired to be in a relationship with.
We've known each other for a long time and we reconnected over the
summer, and it's just been a whirlwind.”
“I'm very happy with my personal life
and also my professional life, and I thank God I can be exactly where
I'm at,” he added.
“He's wonderful. He's totally not in
my field at all. He didn't even know I was a figure skater when we
first met or even when we reconnected. He is Russian. He worked in
[New York City] for a long time, and then he went back to Atlanta to
do work for his family, and in a couple of weeks he's moving back up
to New York. He's a lawyer. He's in the legal field, completely
separate from all my razzle dazzle.”
In an interview with The
GA Voice, Weir mentioned that his 28-year-old boyfriend had
only recently come out gay.
