U.S. figure skating champion Johnny
Weir says he feels gayest when he's having sex.
The 28-year-old Weir came out gay in
his 2011 memoir Welcome to my World and he ended that year by
marrying Atlanta-area lawyer Victor Voronov in New York City.
Weir will be in Philadelphia this
weekend to accept the Delaware Valley Legacy Fund's (DVLF) National
HERO award at its annual HEROES event.
“My hero may be cliché, but it's my
mama,” he told Philadelphia Magazine's gay blog G
Philly. “She raised me with the strength to be me all while
forging the path herself.”
When asked to describe his love for
Philadelphia in three words, Weir answered: “Sophistication,
tradition and cheesesteaks.”
Favorite place in the world, Weir said,
is Moscow, Russia.
Weir also answered some personal
questions, like how to achieve flawless skin: “No matter how drunk
you get, always wash your face before bed! Also, proper hydration
and sunscreen are key.”
And on the fill in the blank question,
“I feel gayest when …,” Weir responded: “I'm having sex.”
