Queen Latifah Shares Love NOT Her Sexual Orientation At Gay Pride

Queen Latifah did not ‘come out’ two weeks ago during her performance at Long Beach’s Lesbian & Gay Pride event. Despite the boastful musings of the organizer who assured that he was proud Queen Latifah would use the event to come out, it wasn’t so.

The entertainer, musician and producer told EW, “That definitely wasn’t the case. I’ve never dealt with the question of my personal life in public. It’s just not gonna happen.”

There are only two things Latifah wants to share with the gay community: light and 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.”
