Queen Latifah Headlining at Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival

Queen Latifah is set to headline at this year's annual Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival on May 19.  This performance will mark the Queen's first ever engagement at a pride celebration.

“From hip to R&B, pop to standards, Queen Latifah is the voice of our generation, and her concert here will be phenomenal,” Long Beach Pride Co-President Pat Crosby said in a statement. “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.”

Now the whole world is speculating (again) to whether she is gay or not.  This performance is somehow determining her sexual orientation which to me makes no sense.   In the past, headliners have included, Jennifer Hudson, Maya, and India.Arie. and I don't remember hearing anything about them in the news.

Do you think that by performing at these awards, she is 'claiming' her sexual orientation?

The bottom line is that, that whether she is gay, straight or otherwise, Queen Latifah is incredibly talented and has had an amazing career.

Take a second and reminisce on some of her highlights.....
