Queen Latifah Comes Out of the Closet (Finally)

Gheys and lesbians are celebrating the biggest news since the passage of the gay marriage law in New York in 2011.

Hollywood’s most well-known lesbian, Queen Latifah, has finally come out of the closet. The rapper-turned-actress made the transition quietly, in a press release announcing her commitment to headline this year’s annual Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival.

It is the first time that Latifah, real name Dana Owens, has ever participated in a Gay Pride celebration.

Sandrarose.com was the first to break the scoop that Latifah, 42, and her longtime lover Jeanette Jenkins had split up in 2011 (thanks to my west coast connect for the tip!).

That’s when Latifah began dating a choreographer, who some say helped break up her relationship with Jenkins.

My scoop resulted in Latifah yanking advertising for her television projects, including the popular hit reality series “Single Ladies,” from Sandrarose.com.

From VIBE

Long Beach Co-President Pat Crosby stated, “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.”

The festival takes place Saturday, May, 19 and with Latifah on board, is sure to be a bang.

I've always loved her as an actress. She's always seemed such an upbeat and friendly person, all smiles and joy :)

Believe it or not, nope. It's not like she's plastered it all over the media, she kept quiet about her private life and i'm not one to dig into a stars private life so i had no idea if she was straight or gay and i didn't care either way.

I just thought it was interesting that she's coming out publicly after all this time when she'd kept quiet about her private life for so long.

Where's the article that says that she says that she's gay? I don't care one way or the other. But, I'm just wondering.
