Your 2011 LA PRIDE Parade Grand Marshal.
The parade is TODAY!
or via live webcast through the link
on LA PRIDE's Parade page!

Johnny being interviewed Saturday by Edd Adamko,
Senior Executive Producer at KABC-Los Angeles
for both ABC7 Eyewitness News and the entertainment show,
"On The Red Carpet." Photo from LA PRIDE's Facebook page!

And here's the (really excellent) interview!

Which brings us to Three Reasons Why You Should Watch Johnny as Grand Marshal in the LA PRIDE Parade Today:

(1) "My mother picked my outfit."

(2) "I am wearing a little bit of a wedge boot, I am pulling out a sparkly short-short, and this kind of very crazy Jill Sander tuxedo jacket ... I wanted to be a little bit understated."

(3) "For the parade, we are building up this giant mohawk on my head. So it'll be lots of artificial things--feathers and flowers and chains and lots of crazy stuff--so it'll keep my hair strong enough so it'll be more like a hat than hair."






So! The pre-parade press conference begins at 10:30 am PDT / 1:30 pm EDT, and then the parade kicks off with Grand Marshal Johnny at 11 am PDT / 2 pm EDT.

You can watch it live on West Hollywood Channel 10 (click on the graphic on the right-hand side of the page that says, "Click here to watch City Channel 10 Live!"), or via the link on the LA PRIDE Parade page (click on "").

Thanks Johnny, now I have the whole Shrek/Donkey onion/parfait argument running through my head!

Can't wait to see the mohawk, what outfit Patti picked out for him, the parade, the pride, the love ♥

Glad to hear he's taking another year off. I didn't see how he was going to be able to pull off the Spectacular and training along with everything else he has planned. But also glad to hear that there are still hopes we'll see Johnny in Sochi.

Johnny G. Weir = #WINNING!

DONKEY: You know what ELSE everybody likes? Parfaits! Have you ever met a person, you say, "Let's get some parfait," they say, "Hell no, I don't like no parfait"? Parfaits are delicious!

SHREK: NO! You dense, irritating, miniature beast of burden! Ogres are like onions! End of story! Bye-bye! See ya later.

DONKEY: Parfait's gotta be the most delicious thing on the whole damn planet!
