Former Olympic skater and gold medalist has just revealed he is gay! In a statement Brian says, "I am many things: a son, a brother, and uncle, a friend, an athlete, a cook, an author, and being gay is just one part of who I am." Adding, "First and foremost I am an American athlete and I am proud to live in a country that encourages diversity, openness and tolerance. As an athlete, I hope we can remain focused on the Olympic spirit which celebrates achievement in sport by peoples of all nation." But just because he is out doesn't mean he's going to publicize his life. He says he will keep his personal life to his friends and family.
