Oh, Johnny, it’s too bad we never hung out when you were in Vangroover, because we would have had a fabulous time! I can’t resist a passive-aggressive activist (just ask Julian Assange) and it doesn’t get better than Johnny “No, I Won’t Say A Word About Gay Rights at Sochi” Weir. Some men know how to send a message without making any noise at all.
So far the world’s brassiest figure skater has treated us to a solid week of accelerating levels of superfabulousness, culminating in a sequined ensemble which practically bitchslaps the director and demands a Bob Fosse solo. Poor Tara Lipinsky; she is very much the dowdy, butt-bowed bridesmaid at this party, despite that stunning braid.
Johnny is, of course, married to a Russian, and is known formally as John Garvin Weir-Voronov. He and his husband Victor have been married since 2011.
