Niecy Nash and Louis van Amstel Bring Gay Marriage Equality Push To ABC’s Dancing With The Stars (Video)

Reno 911’s Niecy Nash and openly gay Louis van Amstel performed a waltz last night on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars”  featuring a story about an interracial couple in the ’60s who can’t get married. Nash gets emotional thinking about imagining the discrimination and not being able to marry the person she loves. Van Amstel chimes in, “I hear you. I’m still in that boat. So, we’ve come a long way, but you’ve got to help me fight my battle too.”

Brava Diva! To BOTH of you!
