A gay couple have taken to the Italia’s Got Talent stage to come out to their fathers while showcasing a contemporary dance that has moved all four judges.

Roberto and Umberto told judges that they had come out to their mothers already but their fathers did not know their true sexuality.

They went on to explain they had been dance partners for two years and until now had only felt comfortable telling their mothers they were gay.

The moving performance has earned the couple a spot in the upcoming finals.

Italy is one of the few remaining countries that has not yet embraced same-sex marriage.
