Weir himself is the one who fans the most flames about his sexuality. It is very obvious that he wants to come out of the closet yet probably was told to keep his orientation to himself. How do I know this? Well Weir is the one who uses the term "princessy" to describe himself, reveals that his nickname given to him by Bobek is "Tinkerbell" because of the way he moves across the ice [which could be attributed to any one of the US guys yet I have a hard time imagining anyone calling Savoie or Evan 'Tinkerbell'], actively participated in fluff pieces called "Weir Eye" which is a play on "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, constantly prances around in a fashion stereotypical to gay men... I could go on and on about the things Weir does that cast light on his sexuality. There are other gay men in skating who don't do things that draw attention to their sexuality like Brian Orser. Even Rudy Galindo doesn't go out of his way to draw attention to his sexuality. Yes Rudy is effeminate, however he doesn't behave in a manner that exaggerates his "femininity" to be provocative.Originally Posted by chelseamp
Johnny projects this "hysterical queen" persona which seems quite at odds to who he really is as a person. Maybe adopting this public image is his way of giving himself more courage and puff himself up. However he cares too much about what people think of him and is hurt when he is criticized. I get this defensive vibe when I read his interviews.
