Yeah, this is something we all knew, but thought it worth posting. I know that the forum rules say this topic is off-limits when the skater hasn't said anything, but Weir has decided to come out in his book and to PEOPLE Magazine, so hopefully it's OK to post this.
Just a small excerpt. Rest here:Johnny Weir has a memoir coming out soon called Welcome to My World and savvy marketing chap that he is, he's promoting it by leaking/selling excerpts to People magazine. The big news (or non-news) is that Weir finally, explicitly comes out as gay: "With people killing themselves and being scared into the closet, I hope that even just one person can gain strength from my story."
In the People article, Weir talks about his childhood when he was often mistaken for a little girl. Also, his often being called a "homo" or "******" by middle school students. He also mentions a clandestine affair he had with another male skater he refers to only as "Alex."
Anyone have the January 17th edition of PEOPLE? Anything interesting in the Weir article?
