Three-time U.S. National Figure Skating champion John G. “Johnny” Weir's one-man book tour skated onto HLN's Joy Behar Show on Thursday.

The skating champ with a knack for being flamboyant is pitching his new tell-all memoir Welcome to my World, which was released on January 11. In the book, Weir talked about his sexual orientation, a subject he previously refused to discuss.

Weir told Behar that he wrote the book because he wanted to come out on his terms and rejected the idea that gay activists had pushed him out of the closet.

“The pressure from the gay community has been years old,” Weir said. “They've been trying to get me to come out and be an activist and do all of these things which I so respect and which are so important to the gay community, but it's not me.”

“I wasn't a born activist. I'm an athlete. I'm an entertainer, and that's what I do,” he added.

Last week, the 26-year-old entertainer told George Lopez that he likes masculine men, such as rocker Justin Timberlake and actor Mario Lopez.
