Gay actor and Kinky Boots playwright Harvey Fierstein is in a bit of hot water this morning, after calling Johnny Weird the “F” word. (Not, not that “F” word, this one.)

I had hope and Victor and I were talking about reconciliation, but it was for not. … I have been sad for a long time … and unfortunately don’t foresee a way to resolve our current marital issues.”
Only a week after the domestic biting incident that made it’s way around the web, Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir has announced that he and husband Victor Voronov are getting divorced.

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.
