Knox

Though he was not out while he was on the show, Tucker Knox, a contestant on Season 10 of So You Think You Can Dance posted the above photo to his Instagram account yesterday:

"I'm gonna start a "fall back Friday" mainly cuz I miss the hubs and that beach!"

Towleroad tipsters tell us that this is the first time he has revealed that information. If that's not the case, the cute shot is still worth celebrating.

Knox was not out on the show though they did make some thinly-veiled references to it and his husband was seen in the audience. Knox was eliminated on August 20.

A week before his elimination, he danced in the first same-sex pairing of the season, with Robert Roldan.

Rugby star and straight LGBT rights ally Ben Cohen, who is competing on Strictly Come Dancing, the UK's version of Dancing with the Stars, wanted to be in the show's first same-sex pairing and was hoping to be paired up with gay Latin and Ballroom dance pro Robin Windsor (right), the UK's Mirror reports.

Said Cohen: “I’ve no qualms dancing with a woman or a man. Kristina will be easier to pick up though...I like to break down stereotypes."

Said Windsor: "He kept saying to me, ‘I hope they put me with you' ... He’s amazing, the things he has done for the gay ­community. I adore him."
