“You’re occupying your male sexuality whether that is gay or not. When I danced with my partner Karen, we did the Tango to David Bowie – it was our first dance. I bloody loved it.
It was all about a connection. I didn’t try and pretend that I wanted to screw her, I was just taking on the character.
And I think actually I would find it more insulting if someone was like, ‘You’ve got to dance with a man because you’re gay.’ It’s the same as acting. It’s like, no, I don’t.'”– Will Young, venting about the Strictly Come Dancing rule that implies openly gay contestants can only dance with same-sex partners.
What a pity Will Young’s exit was early. The professional dancers are just as likely to be gay as the celebs – nobody asks them if they would prefer to dance with a male of a female – or do they?
True. And maybe someday it won’t be necessary to proclaim that you are straight or gay, just human.
How about showing the “rule”.
you are very cute, Will. I’ll dance with you…
