Is Johnny Weir too gay for Stars on Ice? According to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, an anonymous source close to the organization says sponsors of the ice skating tour have refused to allow Weir to participate because he is "not family friendly," according to Advocate.com.

What?!? It's Stars on Ice! Know your audience!


Writes GLAAD:  "To say that Weir is "not family friendly" would be a clear jab at his perceived sexual orientation. Weir is extremely involved with his family. He is putting his younger brother through college, and supports the family financially because his father's disability prohibits him from working. Weir's dedication to his family can be clearly documented in the Sundance series, Be Good Johnny Weir, which follows him and his family and friends through his life and career as a championship skater."

Weir was harshly criticized at the winter games in Vancouver for his flamboyant performance style, with two French-Canadian journalists saying he makes a mockery of figure skating and should be forced to take “a gender test.”

Dubbed America’s Premier Figure Skating Tour, Stars on Ice’s sponsors include Smuckers and IMG Entertainment. Tours like Stars on Ice have the potential to provide a significant source of income to figure skaters.
