Weir: I'm Gay But I Like Women

Weir: I'm Gay But I Like Women


Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir, who has triple-lutzed around questions about his sexual orientation, admits in his upcoming autobiography that he is gay, but still wouldn't rule out marrying the right woman if she came along, Gawker reports.

"In a sexual way, I'm gay, but I would marry a woman tomorrow if it struck me. I don't think sex and relationships necessarily have to go together," he says.

Weir writes in his autobiography, Welcome to My World, that he had to come out to set an example for troubled LGBT youths who might be having a hard time dealing with bullies at school, tough parents, or their own feelings.
