I was a guest on OutSports Radio yesterday to discuss Johnny Weir's performance as an ice skating announcer at the Winter Olympics and whether or not he's been an "activist" for LGBT people while he's in Sochi.
After Editor-In-Chief John Becker appeared on CNN with Don Lemon to discuss Weir's abysmal record on LGBT rights and the Sochi games, OutSports columnist Cyd Zeigler came out swinging over Lemon's comment that Weir was putting on a "minstrel show" and argued that Weir's clothing sent a valuable message all on its own. I saw it on Facebook, disagreed vehemently that wearing a spangle-encrusted shirt on television makes one an activist, and quickly scored an invite to discuss it on air.
What do you think? Do you agree with Zeigler or are you more inclined to concur with me? Listen to the audio and give us your opinion on Weir's performance in Sochi.
