Johnny Weir

Whether witty or wise, controversial or charming, shocking or silly, sweet or sassy, provocative or profound, inspiring or infuriating--or any combination of those--Johnny Weir, the three-time U.S. Champion, two-time Olympian, and World medalist figure skater, almost always says something worth quoting whenever he commentates a skating competition, makes a TV appearance, gives an interview, holds a press conference, writes, tweets, or is caught on video. His quotes needed to be collected and shared; hence this blog.

It took me a long time to find my pride. I always was focused more on my sport and making something of myself other than being gay and being born that way. That was just something that I was born with, the same that I'm white, so I wanted to do extra, do more. And then, in the last couple of years, with some many people having trouble and me being in the spotlight more than ever in my life, I realized that, you know, I am proud, I'm so happy to be me, and so happy for all the things I'm born with and I need to show that to the world., "Johnny Weir talks about being honored in Sunday's pride parade," video, June 11, 2011
