JoJo Siwa Makes DWTS History With First Same-Sex Pairing

JoJo Siwa Makes DWTS History With First Same-Sex Pairing

Series 30 of Dancing With The Stars (DWTS) has been renewed and we are all thrilled. Dancing With The Stars Season 30 is set to start from September of this year. Now names are coming out of celebrities who are about to be featured on the show. And now there is a history in the making for the 30th season of the show. Jojo Siwa is about to be part of the show!

And what’s better is, she has chosen to be paired with a woman rather than a man. Traditionally, Dancing With The Stars always featured celebrities and they were always paired with choreographers of the opposite sex. But they are set to break this tradition this year. And who better to do it with than Jojo Siwa.

How does she feel?

Jojo Siwa is partnered with Suni Lee for the show. During the production, Siwa had the choice of dancing with a man or a woman. “Well, I actually would love to dance with a girl,” she said.

In an interview with USA Today, she said: “I am very happy to be able to share with the world that you can love who you love, but now you can dance with who you want. I have a girlfriend who loves me unconditionally and who is everything to me. My experience of coming out and having a girlfriend has inspired many people around the globe.”

“I believed choosing to dance with a girl would break the stereotypes and make the show more exciting, different, and different for the better.”
