Queen Latifah Making Gay Pride Debut!

… As the headliner of the Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival!!

Though not openly-gay, diva is showing her love and support of the gay community.

This concert will be the Queen Latifah's very FIRST public engagement at a Pride celebration, ever.

Fest Pres. Pat Crosby, announced:

“From hip to R&B, pop to standards, Queen Latifah is the voice of our generation, and her concert here will be phenomenal. For her to make her worldwide Pride debut here in Long Beach is a tremendous testament to the popularity of our celebration and to the strength of our community.”

Many speculate that the actress/singer plans to formally come out during the big event … but that's her business, not ours.

Gay or straight, it really doesn't matter.

We're just thrilled that someone as AMAZETASTIC as The Queen is showing some love for the gays!

    Latifah was SUPPOSED to perform in Washington, D.C. in the year 2000 at the huge gay marriage fundraising concert "Equality Rocks", alongside people like Garth Brooks and George Michael. She pulled out at the last minute without explanation. They ended up allowing one of the backup singers to come center stage and sing some songs instead, and it was brilliant. Here's an article that announced her participation. We were all VERY disappointed that she bailed on her gay fans, and we all knew it was because she was afraid to come out of the closet.

    I just lost all respect for her.

    Re: dryan1971 – If you just lost respect for Latifah because she's performing at a gay event, I've got news for you: she doesn't want or need your respect.

    why should anyone care plenty of people have been supporting LGBT for ages and don't get those opportunities IJS

    she is a really good actress and extremely charismatic on the screen
    if she were to come out- it would not affect her career at all
    would love to see her star in a movie about Pearl Bailey and her fascinating life- it would be Oscar worthy I'd bet
    she's barely even tapped into her raw talent in my opinion

    "Though not openly-gay, " so you're saying she's in the closet??? why the fuck would you say "she's straight" by intimating she is gay. you are an EVIL fuck.

    Good for her and hope she'll make it official before too long. Agee with the poster who noted that it should not hurt her career. She's over 40, so it's not like horribly sexist Hollywood is going to be beating down her door for leading lady parts much longer. Just hope Hollywood can find her better parts other than tough mother parts to actresses not much younger than her.
