Queen Latifah is set to headline the upcoming Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival in California. It will be the award winning rapper turned actress turned singer’s first performance celebrating gay pride, according to the Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival’s official site.
Long Beach Pride Co-President, Pat Crosby explained the importance of Queen Latifah’s presence at the pride celebration:
“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.”
Just because Queen Latifah is set to headline this Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival doesn’t actually confirm her sexuality because headlining acts past include India.Arie, Mya and Jennifer Hudson.
However, rumors of Queen Latifah’s sexuality have been circulating for years now. In her cameo on Vh1′s “Single Ladies,” she played a lesbian character.
