Did Queen Latifah come out as a lesbian?
"This will be Queen Latifah's first-ever engagement at a Pride celebration anywhere in the world," reads a press release from Long Beach Pride.
"For her to make her worldwide Pride debut here in Long Beach is a tremendous testament to the popularity of our celebration and the strength of our community," says LBP co-president Pat Crosby.
What isn't said is anything about Latifah's sexuality. And, as The New Civil Rights Movement points out, Whitney Houston performed at New York's 1999 Gay Pride Festival, Jennifer Lopez at the 2006 NYC Pride Pier Dance and Katy Perry marched in the 2011 NYC Gay Pride Festival. So attendance hardly equals an admission.
Though, Chris Spargo at Logo adds, "It could mean nothing or it could mean Miss Latifah will have have a big announcement next weekend. Stay tuned."
