We covered Johnny's trip to Fukuoka previously, with fab photos and the videos referred to in the article. But now we know more fully why Johnny was there and the importance of his trip. 

Three things: (1) The world needs a lot more missions of this kind from Johnny, ambassador of love, acceptance, and "never-listen-to-idiots-who-tell-you-'no'." Hillary, let's get on that right away. (2) Most moving part of the writeup: "One participant said, 'It was like a dream to get to talk to Johnny Weir, and it was the first time I ever spoke about LGBT issues with a mixed audience.'" (3) Always so proud to be his fan.

Johnny On My TV!! Skating!

Can't wait!!

More Johnny On My TV!! Skating?

Congratulations to Johnny and to the Johnny Weir to Host SNL! (Yes Please) team for going over 600 "likes" on the campaign's Facebook page yesterday! The milestone was achieved by Facebook agreeing to a merger of two pages both promoting Johnny as SNL host. Please come "like" the page if you haven't already, and follow the campaign on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr so you can help make this happen! Because he should be on all the things. Especially since SNL lately seems to be obsessed with skating...

Any Picspam Today

There's a Tumblr called "beautiful shapes" that's devoted to figure-skating photos. And when I first saw this exclusive new set by the wonderfully talented Elena Vasileva of Johnny's November 8 practice, that's the phrase that immediately came to mind. I think you'll see why...

As always, please click any photo twice for larger view.

And now, he skates to center ice, 
poised to begin a run-through 
of his beautiful Phoenix program...
photos to come...

Bonus pics!! Catching up on fan art

Johnny looked really good. His practices looked really good. Johnny is a born performer. When his body is cooperating, nobody can touch his performance.

#ayukovon has a sweet and sensitive soul that comes through in all her art. Binky, too, with her words.
