Gay Icon Martina Navratilova Joins DWTS

Gay Icon Martina Navratilova who won 18 Grand Slam singles titles, 31 Grand Slam women's doubles titles (an all-time record) & 10 Grand Slam mixed doubles titles has joined the new 14th season of DANCING WITH THE STARS. Martina seems to be solely representing our LGBT community on the gay friendly ABC show this season. As you remember last year we had Chaz Bono & Carson Kressley to cheer for. This is an amazing challenge for Navratilova who bounced back from breast cancer & faced her fear on her Kilimanjaro climb in 2010. It will be interesting to see how her appearance on the show will cast some needed visibility on our LGBT people. Last year we reported that Navratilova feels the younger LGBTQ generation needs to take ownership of the LGBT movement. “I do get pissed off when I’m at some gay event & there’s a 25-year-old & he has no idea who I am. And I say, ‘You need to know more about your gay history, boy.’ I think the younger generation takes it a little bit for granted,” Martina stated. I’m sure her participation on DANCING WITH THE STARS will provide a whole new audience for the Legendary Navratilova. Now let’s all vote & keep her on. DWTS 14th season premiere’s on ABC March 19th at 8P ET/PT.

Unfortunately, they paired her up with a male partner. If you're interested in seeing same-sex pairs on DWTS in the future, SIGN + SHARE this -- https://www.change.org/petitions/dwts-bring-equality-to-the-dance-floor-2 -- for #DanceFloorEquality.
