Family-Friendly Friday: Going Home

A pensive Johnny gazes out the window 
on the way to his hometown book signing 
in Lancaster, PA, January 14, 2011. 
Moments before, Tara had explained to him 
that 11-year-old Michelle Babineau, diagnosed with 
an incurable brain tumor, would be coming to the signing 
to fulfill a dying wish: to meet him. 
Michelle had been offered the chance to either 
go to Disneyland or to see Johnny. 
She chose Johnny.

On a wintry Friday evening in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, two families and their extraordinary children came together for a brief but heartfelt moment in the name of love.

Flashback Friday: Flint Revisited

Johnny performs "Dirty Love" for the first time 
at Holiday Dreams on Ice, Flint, Michigan, December 2010. 
Love the way his costume is reflected in the ice. 
I know he said on Monday's BGJW2 episode
"That was horrifying ... We all know it wasn't good"
but the big crowd in Flint (yes! People came! 
Probably more than one gay even!) loved him, 
as you'll see in the video below...

"I'm Here. I'm Weir. Get Into It."

Logo's new profile pic 
for Twitter and Facebook! Love!

So yesterday was an explosion of Be Good Johnny Weir Season 2 fabulosity beginning with the promo video that actually was released Tuesday and that I think has been running on Logo for some time now but which I never seemed to catch but now it's available on YouTube for endless repeat viewing and also here it is again in case you missed it!

"Johnny Weir is here, and I'm going beyond the ice. 
I need to find my next career. I'm trying out a few new routines. 
I want to try out for a movie, model, design a fashion thing. 
I want to sing, I want to write my memoirs, 
I want to make my own Spectacular ice show: 
I want to bring together all of the freaks, 
Lady Gaga, purple ponies. 
I'm afraid of not being good at anything else 
aside from my skating. 
I'm here. I'm Weir. Get into it."
