LGBT Activist John Becker Appears On CNN To Discuss The Un-Fabulously Gay Johnny Weir – Video

Johnny Queer

 

Back2Stonewall.com’s close friend, LGBT activist and editor-in -chief of the Bilerico Project,  John M. Becker appeared on CNN yesterday to discuss Johnny Weir and why he remains silent on Russia’s anti-LGBT human rights abuses while in Sochi, and how in doing so he’s actually enabling Putin’s “gay propaganda” ban

Becker appeared  along with panelists Nicholas Benton (whoever the hell he is)  and Don Lemon (who becomes less attractive the more he opens his mouth) with Benton disagreeing claiming that his tacky outfits were in itself a strong statement against Putin and Lemon calling Wier “fabulous” and talking about the pressure that this subject puts Weir and Olympic athletes under while simultaneously slamming Wier by saying that no one likes a “gay minstrel show”
