… 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!
