Johnny Weir: Grateful for GLAAD

Johnny Weir: Grateful for GLAAD

Johnny Weir rocks a pair of silver gloves at the 2010 GLAAD Media Awards held at Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on Saturday (April 17) in Century City, Calif.

The 25-year-old Olympic figure skater and Chaz Bono took to the stage and welcomed the 1000 young adults in attendance. LGBT youth and allies from local universities and high schools were invited to watch a live feed of the show and celebrate at a youth-only after party. Johnny, Adam Lambert and the cast of Glee all stopped by to meet the LGBT youth in attendance.

“There are so many beautiful people here tonight,” Johnny said. “It’s so wonderful that everyone comes together to celebrate life and celebrate the differences that make us all unique.”

Yesterday, Johnny tweeted, “I’m now following @adamlambert because he yelled at me for not following! You rocked tonight darling.” (Adam performed at the GLAAD Awards.)

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    …who is he?!?

  • Melons

    @JC: What were your shoes made of – leather, am I correct? Unless you are a Vegan who has never bought leather in their life, you can not make a statement like that. Fur – leather – meat – are all the same. hope you were being sarcastic.

  • Markus

    @MAC: An Olympic ice-skater. Do you live under a rock?

  • Remielle

    I love the way he speaks.

  • black

    Annoying bitch.

  • T

    he has a very…European way of dressing lol…but he’s ridiculously talented and very sweet. Plus super funny.

  • simon

    @black: You’re a *****

  • ^.^

    We met Johnny that night!! He is a sweetheart and so funny. It’s kind of amusing some of his fans think he is ‘not gay until proven’. He couldn’t be more Out if he tried. NOT saying flamboyance , ice-skating etc. = gay because then that is yet another stereotype but sometimes you can just tell! Some of his fans get so offended when you say he is gay, like how slow can you get lol?? He’s not closeted that’s for sure. Wish him well in his career…xo

  • zee

    He looks like a little elf or a pixie!

    I am a vegan and I agree 100% with JC. I support LGBT rights wholeheartedly, but I also care about animal suffering, and don’t like Johnny Weir a bit. You and Johnny should both educate yourself about the fur industry. Animals living miserable lives then being killed by anal electrocution so Johnny Weir can wear a fur hat isn’t going to endear him to anyone who cares about justice and suffering for human AND non-human animals.

  • Dave

    @Valerie: IF you are a Vegan, you are already in a stronger place to argue about fur than JC is. If your shoes are leather, you can stop right there. Ever bought leather in your life? Leather is a by-product of meat. What many, many people don’t realize is that leather, fur and meat ALL share the same Industry produce. All 3 go through the same cruel procedures. Hunting is the same thing although some people just hunt for fun and some hunt for meat/fur/leather. If you support PETA, you can also just stop right there as PETA are the biggest hypocrites in the business. Did you know they KILL dogs and other animals to “prove a point”. Fur, meat, leather — it ALL comes down to personal opinions at the end of the day. Some people are comfortable with leather but not fur, some are comfortable with leather but not meat, some are comfortable with fur but are vegetarians, and it goes on. It depends where YOU personally draw the line. You simply can’t force your opinions onto someone else.

  • Dave

    (especially when all 3 go through the same ‘suffering’)

  • ana

    he’s kinda ugly but cute lol. he’s an AMAZING skater!

  • Valerie


    JC never said whether or not s/he’s a vegan, and for the record, I am sitting here wearing my VEGAN shoes. Neither JC or I said a word about forcing opinions on anyone. Choosing not to financially support someone you find offensive is a personal choice that does not equate to ‘forcing opinions’ on anyone; but an athlete/entertainer who chooses to vocally and obnoxiously thumb his nose at the caring and concern of people who are against fur needs to realize he’s alienating potential fans, and for all the whining about Weir not getting hired by ‘Stars on Ice’ because he’s Gay, it should be realized that many people such as myself would have boycotted Stars had Weir been a part of it: because of the FUR issue.

    Visit CONSUMERDECEPTION dot com if you are interested in the corporate interests who don’t want people to have empathy for animals because it cuts into their bottom line.

  • teila

    @Valerie: god I hate people like you. So pompous and ignorant and set in your views.

  • Valerie

    Yeah, keep hating the messenger so you can feel better about exploiting animals. God I hate people like you.

  • happy girl

    did he ever officially come out? i did not know.

  • haha


    he looks like an idiot.

  • Leslee

    I’m glad he came out

  • mona

    Valerie is right. Most fur comes from China where animals are treated with inconceivable cruelty. Some of the fur comes from cats and dogs and is falsely labeled. Wearing fur is indefensible. I wish people would stop arguing that since some people eat meat we should continue skinning animals alive.
