Queen Latifah Ready to Come Out as a Lesbian?

Thursday, January 9, 2014

85th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsQUEEN Latifah is ready to come out as a lesbian!

The actress will bust open the closet doors thanks to the inspiration of Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts, who recently acknowledged she’s gay.

“Latifah never wanted to be labeled a gay spokesperson or role model – that’s why she’s never come out,” a source said.

“Her sexuality has been one of Hollywood’s biggest non-secrets for years, but since Robin came out she’s been thinking long and hard about doing the same.

“Latifah always wanted to keep her private life out of the spotlight, even though she’s never hidden her girlfriends from her close friends and family.

“She’s performed at gay pride festivals, so in her eyes she doesn’t need to make a statement. But deep down inside she knows that going public, like her friend Robin did, will go a long way toward furthering public acceptance of lesbians and gays.

“Latifah respects and admires Robin’s decision. Although she’s still on the fence, she’s finally thinking about coming out – and that’s more than she’s ever done before.”
