Johnny Weir is an American male professional figure skater who is known for his outlandish outfits, his often controversial soundbites, and his fannish appreciation for Russian. Having won Nationals several times and competed twice at the Olympics, he is one of the best known American figure skaters. Sadly, controversy over his sexuality and flamboyance often overshadows his actual athletic talent.
He was recently honored with a Visibility Award from the Human Rights Campaign, and appears in both a documentary and a reality series about his career and history.
Johnny is considered by many to be an honorary yada both because of his personal style and because of his composed, mature responses to personal attacks. He's also just all-around fabulous, which certainly helps.
