Johnny Weir: I Knew I Was Gay at 6

Johnny Weir swaps clothes with George Lopez on Thursday’s (January 20) episode of Lopez Tonight.

The late-night host agreed to slip into a skin-tight skating suit only if Johnny agreed to wear a suit – something he’s never done before!

The 26-year-old figure skating champ was on the show to promote his new memoir, Welcome to My World, and also dished about coming out as a gay man.

“[I knew when I was] six. When you’re six, you don’t realize, ‘Oh I’m gay,’ or, ‘Oh I’m white.’ You just know you’re a kid, right?”

“So I was watching Pretty Woman with my family and I desperately wanted to be Julia Roberts, besides the prostitution part,” he added. “And then I realized, OK, Richard Gere is doing a little too much for me even though I’m six!’

As for what kind of guy he likes, Johnny shared, “I’m kind of lady like so someone with a little scruff … a fantastic dancing ability, someone that can really shake it!”

Johnny Weir: 'Welcome To My World' Release Party!

Johnny Weir is all smiles at his book release party sponsored by Barefoot Bubbly at 230 Fifth on Tuesday (January 11) in New York City.

The 26-year-old figure skater proudly showed off his new book Welcome to My World and is also celebrating the release of his new single, Dirty Love.

In the book, Johnny reveals he’s gay and discusses why he didn’t come out earlier.

“There was a lot in the book that I had to take out…because of people that would sue me and stuff like that,” he told NBC. “If I have the opportunity to write a second book, there will be completely new stories that nobody’s heard yet. There’s lots of dirt that I wanted to tell that I wasn’t able to because I’m still too close to the skating world.”

Johnny Weir: I'm Gay

Johnny Weir is revealing some big news in his upcoming memoir Welcome to My World, which hits stores on Tuesday (January 11).

“In a sexual way, I’m gay, but I would marry a woman tomorrow if it struck me,” the 26-year-old figure skating champ said in an excerpt to People. “I don’t think sex and relationships necessarily have to go together.”

“With people killing themselves and being scared into the closet, I hope that even just one person can gain strength from my story,” he added.

Johnny also discusses getting called names in middle school, a secret affair he had with another male skater he only refers to as “Alex,” and why he didn’t come out earlier.

“A lot of the gays got downright angry about my silence. But pressure is the last thing that would make me want to ‘join’ a community.’” he said.

Johnny Weir: 'Dirty Love' Song Premiere!

Johnny Weir has released a naughty new tune, “Dirty Love“!

The 26-year-old figure skating champ sings the chorus, “I’m not scared of your dirty love/ You think you know me, but I call your bluff/ Better raise your game/ Come on let’s make some dirty love.”

Listen to “Dirty Love” inside the cut. “Enjoy and shake that booty!” Johnny says. “Out Jan 11th!”
