Stop Mistaking Margaret Cho’s Rainbow Dress For a Giant Gay Flag

Margaret Cho’s Dancing With The Stars partner Louis Van Amstel — who were both kicked out of the competition last week — insists her red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple dress was not a gay flag, as the judges remarked. “Bruno said, ‘Oh, I love the gay flag as a dress,'” says Van Amstel. “That was not a gay flag! That was the rainbow colors to say, ‘Let’s celebrate each others differences and lets all live under this rainbow.’ That was my message.” To be fair, Cho did say she wore the dress to “celebrate pride.”
