Margaret Cho Uses ‘Dancing’ Stage For Gay Pride, Suicide Prevention


Margaret Cho used Dancing With The Stars' stage last night to celebrate gay youth.

After dancing with partner Louis van Amstel to Barry Manilow's "Copacabana" in a rainbow fringe dress, the exceedingly queer friendly Cho told the audience, "The story is about having pride while people's criticizing you," and, later, "This is the gayest thing that I think has ever happened here."

"Our story is serious," she concluded. "We wanted to celebrate pride. It's a tough time for the gay community. A lot of gay teenagers have committed suicide, so we want this to end now!"
