Just saw this from website thinkprogressive.org:
“Glaad reports that sponsors have “refused to allow” American figure skater Johnny Weir to join the Stars on Ice Tour because they deemed him “not family friendly.” While Weir — a three-time national champion— has never “officially announced his sexual orientation, he has garnered a significant amount of LGBT fans” and is also known for his flashy costumes. Weir won an online poll that asked fans who they wanted to see in the tour, but Stars on Ice seems to have barred him because of his “perceived sexual orientation”:
I met Johnny at Elton John’s Oscar party on Sunday and he was a cool Guy. Hopefully everyone will open their mind and get over their hangups.
Tell the company who produces the show to put Johhny in it!
