Queen Latifah Kinda Sort Came Out At Long Beach Pride. But Not Really

On Saturday, Queen Latifah took the stage at Long Beach Pride, the first time the rapper-actress has performed at an LGBT event. Although there was no “Yup, I’m gay” moment, La gave a little T to the crowd.

Saying she’d “been waiting a long time to do this,” the Queen said she was proud to be among her people.

And welcome to the Matt Bomer school of coming out: An unspecific semi-acknowledgement at a public event where straight and gay celebrities often take the stage.

It’s the best of both worlds! In-the-know gays will think you’ve stage a big coming out and unsuspecting soccer moms won’t hear a thing about it. Movie career (or cosmetics contract) secured.
