Figure skater John G. “Johnny” Weir
suggested he's gay in the season finale of his reality series BE
GOOD JOHNNY WEIR.
The three-time U.S. National Figure
Skating champion with a knack for being flamboyant has never directly
announced he's gay, opting instead to sidestep such rumors.
Before competing in the 2006 Olympics,
Weir insisted his sexual orientation was a private matter.
“I can sleep with whomever I choose
and it doesn't affect what I'm doing on the ice, so speculation is
speculation,” he said.
But on Sunday's season finale, which
aired on cable network Sundance, Wier suggested he's gay.
Weir drops the hint as he preps with
his agent, Tara, to attend the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against
Defamation's (GLAAD) annual Media Awards.
“Take it off your head right now,”
Weir commands Tara, referring to a gaudy hair accessory. “We are
not going to agitate the gays.”
“Because I know you think the Jews
run the world,” he continues, “but let me tell you something. We
are the decorators, we are the florists, we are the designers, we are
the dressers, we are the stylists, we are everything.”
Weir, who turned 26 Friday, won
a NewNowNext Award in the Most Addictive Reality Star category from
all-gay cabler Logo for his reality series.
