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.

I never used being gay as a handicap. I only saw it as a positive, and it only made me stronger whether I was being bullied or whether I was going to compete in the Olympics. It didn't matter. I had to be strong and I had to be good at what I did, and I think that's the strongest statement I can make to the gay community., Straight to the Web, "Iggy with Johnny Weir," podcast, November 10, 2011
