Two-time Olympian Johnny Weir has been named grand marshal of the Los Angeles Gay Pride Parade, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The three-time U.S. National Figure Skating champion and star of cabler Logo's reality hit Be Good Johnny Weir came out gay in his memoir Welcome to my World, released in January.

“Johnny lives a life with a defined purpose, is dedicated to helping young people and is not afraid to be himself, sometimes not always an easy thing for a world class athlete,” Rodney Scott, president of Christopher Street West, told the Reporter.

“I'm not ashamed to be me,” Weir added. “More than anyone else I know, I love my life and accept myself. What's wrong with being unique? I am proud of everything that I am and will become.”

The annual parade, now in its 41st year, is expected to attract 400,000 revelers as it winds its way down Santa Monica boulevard to the main entrance to the Los Angeles Gay Pride Festival at San Vincent Boulevard in West Hollywood.

A second season of Be Good Johnny Weir is expected for later this year.
