Rumor has it that Ricky Martin only came out of the closet because his boyfriend ,a fellow Puerto Rican wanted to out him and was being fed up with the hiding. Makes total sense, why else would he come out right now.

Johnny Weir was making the rounds once more at late-night talk shows, this time with E’s Chelsea Handler where he mocked Evan Lysacek’s “straightness”. When talking about rooming with Evan’s ex-girlfriend at the Olympics he made a very telling wink while saying girlfriend. Love me some Johnny.

The attitudes towards homosexuality have been tested with polls asking people “if they think homosexuality is never justifiable,” since the 80’s. Back in 1980 39% of swedes thought is was unjustifiable, now only 4%. In Germany it went from 45% to 11%. Japan from 54% to 24%. U.S not so good, still 35% in 2006. It came from 66% in the early 80’s though so that is a good step in the right direction.
