Brian Orser (born December 18, 1961 in Belleville, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian figure skater. He Won silver medals at the 1984 and 1988 Winter Olympics.

In November 1998, an ex-boyfriend sued Orser for palimony, revealing his homosexuality, and Orser attempted to keep the proceedings secret. According to Orser, "Other skaters, both Canadian and American, guard their gayness closely because of the likely impact of public disclosure on their careers."

In 1985, he was made a Member of the Order of Canada and was promoted to Officer in 1988.
