Brian Boitano Speaks Out On His Decision To Come Out As Gay
Olympic gold medal winning figure skater Brian Boitano speaks with Today's Matt Lauer on his decision to publicly come out and his upcoming role as a member of the U.S. Olympic delegation in Sochi, Russia. Watch!
“When the president named the delegation, and I read in the news what his message was of tolerance and diversity, I thought, I have to take this opportunity,’’ Boitano told Matt Lauer on TODAY Thursday. “I think the message is so strong. I’ve always wanted to represent my country as best I could, and I knew that I had to go past my comfort zone and reveal a private side of my life that I’ve never done before because I felt that the message is so strong.”
Boitano believes just being part of the delegation speaks volumes when it comes to Russia’s anti-gay law.
