    It's official. Benji Schwimmer has come out. He was the winner of So You Think You Can Dance. He has done a series of videos on being Mormon and gay.

    I loved him, he and donyelle were my favorite couple.

    I always wondered about him... guess now I know.

    I wonder what his family Heidi and Lacey think.

    Isn't he David Schwimmer's little brother?

    The world needs to know Benji -- the best contestant ever on SYTYCD, imho...

    Here's the link to the interview in which Benji talks about coming to terms with his sexuality and his faith.



    There are, obviously, two other parts. Part 2 talks about his SYTYCD experience, and Part 1 talks about his early years of his LDS experience.

    In the second video he states, "I don't get that close to girls... unless I'm married." icon_lol.gif

    Beautiful dancer and really great energy. He totally deserved to win. If he was straight, THAT would have been a shock.

    I just listened to 33 MINUTES ...and will later take in the whole 2 hours.

    This is from a series called Mormon Stories----which attempts to address the variety of ways in which the Mormon Church is peculiarly fucked-up.....while at the same time celebrating what is genius in the Mormon Culture.

    Benji and his interviewer are both amazing here. This is one of the more honest and revealing dialogues you'll witness.

    Thanks for posting, dancedancekj.
