He has the face of Paul Rubens, the hair of Nick Nolte, and the fashion sense of a gay dolphin caught in a fishing net while reenacting a scene from Showgirls. What’s not to love about U.S. Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir?
As Steph mentioned on her blog, Johnny is one of the Boys We Like. Which is quite different than our friend Scott’s version of “Boys I Like.” On Scott’s version, you can sometimes seee boy’s pee-pees. We pretend they don’t have ’em.
Every time Johnny opens his mouth he scares reporters. Just by saying things I hear every day from my gay men:
“I am very princessy as far as travel is concerned and having a nice room and things like that. Sorry to say ‘princessy,'” he added, laughing, “but that’s what we do.”
Known for his outspoken manner, the three-time U.S. men’s champion isn’t afraid to declare that the Olympic Village “is not very comfortable.”
“It’s a little dusty, very underdecorated, the beds aren’t very soft,” Weir said Tuesay, “but I’m enjoying it!”
In sports reporting, “Outspoken” is code for “flaming homo.”
