Schindler's List plays. His costume seemed to be made of barbed wire, fire, and smoke. Brown, who is Jewish, had previously spoken about the performance."This music has meant so much to me since growing up, for my entire life," he said in an interview about the piece that was choreographed by David Wilson. "It's a piece of music that I always wanted to skate to, I always felt connected to, but never felt like I was mature enough to take it on and put it together, to perform it in a way that I dreamt about when I was little.

Those feelings of not being mature enough came to a stop two years ago when I decided that I was ready to perform it. And I think by that point I've grown into myself a little more, of who I am and I just felt very confident that I could portray it and bring it to life in a way that hasn't been done before, that was hopefully very respectful and you could feel the emotion but at the same time a work of art type of way."NBC tweeted that the Olympic performance cemented Brown's "place as one of figure skating's greatest artists." He is one of more than 30 out LGBTQ+ athletes competing at the 2022 Beijing Olympics after notably coming out as gay in 2021.

He is the latest in a long line of gay and bi Olympic male figure skaters.Brown has an Olympic Bronze medal from the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
