He is tall, dark, and handsome, a talented dancer, and a deaf activist. Nyle DiMarco is probably the universe's gift to humanity, and he proves it in his latest spread in Attitude. In the October 2016 issue, DiMarco talks about his groundbreaking same-sex tango with Keo Motsepe on Dancing With the Stars, the acceptance and diversity of the deaf community, and his attraction to men.
"Growing up, I was never afraid to say that a guy was beautiful. Women can say other women are beautiful, so why should it be any different?" says DiMarco.
Nyle goes on to describe acceptance in the deaf community, which he notes is small but diverse. "Everybody accepts everybody else because that's who you are."
After becoming the first deaf contestant on Dancing With the Stars, DiMarco now campaigns for bilingual legislation for young deaf children to be passed in the United States.
