Queen Latifah gay pride parade appearance wasn't a "coming out," says Queen Latifah
Queen Latifah may be royalty at LGBT events, but the singer/actress told EW this week that her headlining the Long Beach Lesbian and Pride gathering on May 19 wasn't a "coming out" as a lesbian as many expected. She told the magazine that the boundaries between her personal and professional life remain totally separate.
“That definitely wasn’t the case,” she tells EW. “I’ve never dealt with the question of my personal life in public. It’s just not gonna happen.”
She reiterated that she's booked gay and lesbian pride events and club performances before, but to her, it's about "sharing love."
“I know that the most important thing and the only thing I have to give is love. When people are going through hatred and bullying, the biggest thing to fight that is love,” she says. “So that’s all I encouraged my audience to do that night: to share their light and share their love. Period.”
