Swansea Did it First!!

Autumn wouldn’t be the same without our annual slice of glamorous ballroom dancing. Each year millions of viewers tune in to watch a host of famous faces shimmy and shake their way through gruelling routines to win the hearts of the nation as Strictly Come Dancing provides our regular Countdown to Christmas! Fans of Strictly will be pleased to know that the show is coming back this autumn and that the full line-up has now been unveiled.
Amongst all the glittering celebrities hoping to impress with their cha cha moves, there has been lots of applause and hype surrounding the 2020 Strictly Line Up Announcements with the MAJOR Break through for the BBC in allow Nicola Adams to dance with a same gender dancer!!
Nicola Adams will be the first celebrity to be in a same sex pairing on Strictly Come Dancing.She will make history on the show as the first celebrity to compete with a same sex partner.The boxer, who is openly gay and in a relationship with blogger Ella Baig, reportedly said she would only do the show if she was paired with a woman.Nicola was the first female amateur boxer to win an Olympic gold medal at London 2012.The 37-year-old said: “It’s amazing to be a part of the movement for change, diversity and breaking boundaries in the entertainment industry.”
Whilst this is excellent for Diversity and for LGBTQ+…… Swansea Pride and Jermin Productions did it first…IN SWANSEA LAST YEAR….(2019!!!) with a whole host of amazing Swansea contestants and we were planning on revisiting it this year (we had our Launch Party and Dancers reveal in February but due to Covid and the Restrictions, we have now had to postpone)
