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.

TQJW is 5 years-old today!

The Quotable Johnny Weir is 5 years-old today. Five years of sharing almost 3,200 of the best things Johnny Weir has ever said. Well, said publicly.

Here's the first quote I posted on August 17, 2010. It's still one of my all-time favorites. And remembering the circumstances under which it was said: Johnny's touching, dignified, and calmly defiant news conference at the 2010 Olympics after being ridiculed about his sexuality by two Canadian broadcasters, still poignant as ever.

 Here's to many more years of Johnny talking, and me trying to keep up with what he says on TQJW.
