Gay Couple Comes Out To Their Fathers Live On “Italy’s Got Talent”

Perfetto!

A gay couple competing on the most recent episode of Italia’s Got Talent came out to their fathers on live television with an impassioned contemporary dance that moved all four judges.

Roberto and Umberto explained to the judges that their fathers know they are dance partners but not romantically involved. The couple have been together for two years and only felt comfortable coming out to their mothers — until now, that is.

The beautiful dance landed the couple a spot in the upcoming finals and hopefully also struck a chord in the hearts of many in Italy, which is one of the last remaining European countries that hasn’t embraced same-sex marriage yet.
