She is very much alive and is a participant of the Wintergreen Women Writers' Collective, who is a group of awesome African American female Writers' that have met consistently and mentored each other over the past 20 years.

You have to be a skating dork, ensconced within that bizarro world where Johnny Weir apparently stands out as particularly effeminate among a group of lithe young men in sequined unitards, for this to even be in question The level of veracity of gossip has sunk really low on Datalounge lately. Or I remember hearing five or seven years such and such is true. I am not talking about how good (as in juicy) the gossip is or is not, R22.

Nor how high level the person is in the show business world or other worlds.

R2, I don't know whether the OP knows a friend of Evan's or not, but it's pretty obvious that OP is right about the rest of it - Evan is gay and it's known in the skating world.

Johnny Weir basically said that himself on Chelsea Lately. This reminds me of the 80s when closeted guys would pretend to crush on Linda Evans, thinking that she was the straight male's idea, not realizing that straight men were definitely NOT into Linda Evans. My friend is an ice skating trainer, one of his students was in the Olympics this year.

The romance between the two skaters first started to percolate last summer.

"We have been good friends, but last year on tour something clicked," says Lysacek.I'm not R83 and I certainly do not think being called gay is an insult, but you have absolutely zero evidence that Evan Lysacek is gay.Some men seem gay in voice or appearance or manner, but are not gay.Until you have some proof that Evan is gay such as Evan dating a man, then you are just stabbing in the dark and fabricating. There's this thing that looks like a duck swimming around in it.It quacks like a duck and when it gets out of the pond it walks like a duck. My own observation is that Evan is in denial and probably has not come to terms with his own sexuality yet - much like Clay Aiken in his Idol days. Young people and even older people have to grasp their own identity as it is comfortable for them.Johnny Weir is far more famous than Evan, has a TV show and documentary, but Johnny would still not be considered a Hollywood celebrity. Accuse means to charge with the fault, offense, or crime. Lets say they all suffer from a severe case of "Dick Button Disease".(Except Rudy Galindo, Johnny Weir and Adam Rippon, who are cool and self affirming, 21st century gays)I hear that some promoter from Clear Channel(? If Evan is gay and lies about it, then it is definitely the public's business.
