PHOTOS: Johnny Weir is Gay, Gay, Gay in Sochi

If flaunting your gayness is illegal in Russia, Johnny Weir must have packed a suitcase full of Get Out of Jail Free cards before heading to Sochi for his job as an NBC Winter Olympic commentator. If his Instagram feed is any indication, the Quarryville, Pa., native is bringing an unabashed amount of homo-fabulousness to this year’s winter games. From a twerk-off in the Olympic ice-skating rink to his fierce Russian braid, I round up some of his gayest moments so far.

In this video, with retired figure skater Tara Lipinski, he shows us the fab wardrobe and jewels he brought along for the festivities.


Here he strikes a pose in the Olympic ice rink.

Look at this village, darling.

This is what he wore to the spa one day, dripping in jewels.

Girlfriend drops it like its hot and twerks backstage at the Olympic ice rink.

Over here, Putin!

Here he channels his inner Alpine milk maid with a wrap-around braid.

Keep working those Olympics, hunty.

    Johnny Weir, you are a disgrace to America. Climb back in the hole you came out of. We as Americans, and I feel I am speaking for many, feel you simply want to throw it in Putin’s face. How can we take you serious as a commentator when you’re making the show about you? You’ll never as pretty as Tara Lipinski, not to mention you make a mockery of America for the world to see.

      You are not speaking for many, you are speaking for yourself, I’m sure Putin would love a homophobe like you in Russia, maybe after the Olympics are over the rent in Sochi will be cheap enough that you can move to your haters Shangri La where people who are different are imprisoned or beaten by cossacks
