Because he wasn’t hiding in the closet, DIDN’TYOUKNOW. Out promoting his memoir Welcome To My World this morning on Today, Johnny says he does want you to judge his book by his cover. Also, that he’s “very surprised” by the reaction to his big reveal, which surprises me, because I’m pretty sure everyone out there knew this already? “I was born a white male. A white gay male. And I don’t celebrate being white or male. So why should I celebrate being gay? … I know people who have been activists for years and have worked so hard and tirelessly … and they have definitely wanted me to be an activist, but I think the best way I can be an activist is to live my life and not make that the main thing that is Johnny Weir. I’m much more than just a gay man.” So true. You are Evan Lysacek’s mortal enemy!
