Figure skater John G. “Johnny” Weir
says he believes sexuality is fluid for both gay and straight people.
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.
But speaking to gay glossy Out,
Weir said he doesn't even believe people are “purely gay.”
“I've always been comfortable with
who I am,” the 26-year-old said, then added: “I don't believe in
masculinity and femininity, I don't believe in a purely gay person or
a purely straight person.”
And once again, Weir ducked questions
surrounding his own sexuality.
“I have a very clear opinion on my
own sexuality. I'm not saying anything about my sexuality because I
want it to be out there in my own words,” he said, leading readers
to believe he'll address the gay rumors in his yet-to-be-published
During last Sunday's season finale of
his reality series BE GOOD JOHNNY WEIR, which airs on cabler
Sundance, the entertainer suggested he's gay.
Weir dropped the hint as he prepped
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.”
