Queen Latifah's gay problem

There are 2 comments on the Xtra! story from Jul 27, 2012, titled Queen Latifah's gay problem. In it, Xtra! reports that:

Another day, another frenzied bout of speculation regarding Queen Latifah’s sexuality – this time, it began with the announcement that Latifah (aka Dana Owens) would be headlining Long Beach Pride (May 19/20). Said Festival Co-President Pat Crosby: “From hip hop 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.”

Our generation? Our celebration? Our community? OMG. Latifah has finally come out of the closet! SandraRose.com led the charge in this direction – and despite its faulty logic, the “story” was hastily reposted by various gossip blogs.

(Last year saw a hurricane of erroneous “Latifah Finally Comes Out” headlines, after a quote from the Queen was plucked from its context and reprinted as “evidence” that she’d gone public about her sexuality – Latifah describes her ideal girlfriend! In fact, Latifah was attempting to redefine sexy in light of our sweeping cultural fixation on T & A).

The woman is a great actress and performer. In a perfect world, everyone would be out and open and it wouldn't matter.

Just because she has pursued a performing career, does not mean that the public has a right to know about her personal life.

Since she has said repeatedly that she wants her personal life to remain personal, then we should respect that and just appreciate her for her talent.
