And just what did figure ice skater Johnny Weir have to say this week?

“I’m about as gay as a box of rainbows.”

Great! Wonderful! Now tell us something that we don’t know, right? Well, for those of you who didn’t, Johnny Weir recently came out of the closet with the bright news that he is in fact…gay. But what’s more is that he even decided to write a book in a memoir he calls, Welcome to My World. He actually visited the Empire State Building with hopes of promoting his new book. Surprisingly so, fans of the ice skater (mostly female) were there showing their support for their favorite athlete.

His autobiography chronicles “a driven child with a loving, supportive family; a conflicted adolescent who grows into an accomplished performer; an imperfect adult who stumbles at inopportune times and tries to savor his experience no matter where he finishes.” This book serves as an outlet for Weir, just another way to announce his gay pride.

Good for him for stating the obvious. It’s definitely clear that he is comfortable in his own skin. What do you think? Buzz us back with your thoughts in the comment box and see more pics below of your very own Johnny Weir. Also, check out a video clip below! Ice is nice.
