Re: Queen Latifah comes out at Gay Pride Parade

Diamond ·
After Set It Off, I don't know too many people who didn't think she was gay. I have noticed, being from an older generation, there is alot more Black young lesbians than there was in my generation. Then I realized that maybe there was just as many but they were in the closet. A friend from my high school days went away to college, to grad school and then earned her Phd before coming home and out of the closet with our jr high gym teacher. That was SHOCK!!

Hey Diamond. Yes people in the NY/NJ locales would see her out with her girlfriend OR she would be dressed very manly. What got me was that after she did "Set It Off" She made a statement to the effect that she stretched her acting abilities to do the role of Cleo (I think that was the character) and afterwards she had to go out and buy something really girlie, etc. etc. I thought to myself wow! You know people have known about her lesbian lifestyle for years, why BS with it at that time.

I'm sorry, but .... I just can't understand why something like this should be considered "news." First of all ..... anybody that didn't know that the Queen was gay by now just wasn't paying attention!! Or just didn't want to acknowledge it. Or has been living under a rock for the past 20 years. But ... it's really this phenomenon about having to "come out" and tell the world about your sexual orientation - and what seems like a requirement to have it celebrated , no less - that truly just...

My daughter said basically what y'all are saying. I just never knew for sure because you know that anyone in Hollywood, famous, etc., rumors run rampant and the gamut. I always thought that she was a little tough acting, but there are plenty women that act like that whom are not gay (lot of them are from New York), so I guess I thought it was "news". Well, in the words of Roseanna Roseannadanna, "Never mind".

Finally! I know she knew it wasn't a SECRET. But I guess she felt "safe" to be herself. I guess Robin Roberts is next. She still a little chicken. Come on...girl you can do it. We know you are anyway....so just come out and be yourself like the Queen. It will be painless. But!

It's kinda not news really. She must've been in the closet with Clay Aiken, with a glass door. People have been talking about her sexuality back when she made her "Ladies First" video with Monie Love, way BEFORE "Set It Off" came out.

Just because white scientist the wealthy and politicians say or write things that they believe, does not necessarily mean that what they say and write is always actually true or correct.
