there’s a fuller image with jill on the far left next to whoever is in the white shirt. if anyone has it could you send it to me? i’ve only found a very cropped version of the full picture which cuts everyone’s faces out.
All the same-sex couples on Dancing with the stars -affiliated shows I could find about
(aka a very elaborate way to procrastinate homework)
Dorit Milman & Gili Shem Tov - DWTS Israel (2010)
Gili Shem Tov is a lesbian TV sportscaster. Her and her partner Dorit Milman were the first ever same-sex couple in the franchise’s history.
Giovanni Ciacci & Raimondo Todaro - DWTS Italy (2018)
Giovanni Ciacci is a fashion designer, and apparently Raimondo Todari is his real life partner. They went to the Grand Finale, and are the first male couple of the franchise (I think).
Jakob Fauerby & Silas Holst - DWTS Denmark (2019)
Jacob Fauerby is a comedian, and they were the first same-sew couple to actually win!
Courtney Act & Joshua Keefe - DWTS Australia (2019)
Courtney Act is a Drag Race alum, and as you can see she performed in drag.
Nicolas Puschman & Vadim Garbuzov - Let’s dance (Germany), (2021)
Nicolas Puschman is a reality TV star and they came third.
Bilal Hassani & Jordan Mouillerac - DWTS France (2021)
Bilal Hassani is a singer, youtuber, influencer that you might reckognize from 2019 Eutovision (you know, when France and Italy weren’t at war ?)
Jojo Siwa & Jenna Johnson - DWTS USA (2021)
Well you all know Jojo Siwa. I wish the best of times on the show :)
John Whaite & Johannes Radebe - Strictly come dancing (UK), (2021)
John Whaite is the winner of The Great British Bake-Off season 3.
Conclusion : I had no idea we had same sex couple as early as 2010, and it seems crazy to me that we had to wait 8 years for another one. Same sex couples are great representation on mainstream media but it is also a great way to make the dance world evolve, especially with it’s strict gender norms. Besides I learned that you can actually go on Wikipedia in a language you’ve never learned and actually understand something, which is incredible.
