I’m not going to get into who I think is a closeted queer and who I’m just really, really in love with. This post is dedicated to strong, beautiful, talented, black women who I wish were gay (or just come out, already!!)
In no particular order…
I’m not saying anything. I saw MC Lyte with Jean Grae at Sputnik in Bedstuy, Brooklyn over the winter. It was beyond amazing. I’m beginning to realize that my girlfriends love of a sista began way before me. She’s not only in love with MC Lyte but Jean Grae as well. Lucky for us, we’ve seen Jean Grae twice together in quite intimate settings. The Autumn in Bed Stuy was amazing. MC Lyte was literally inches away from us, leaning on M, actually while taping a video I still cannot find online. MC Lyte. I don’t think you’re queer but it’d be great if you were.
Corinne Bailey Rae
Is it the caramel-colored skin, the angelic voice, the British accent, the sensual soul, the amazing hair or a combination of them all? Let’s go with D-All of the Above. Corinne Bailey Rae, I know you’re very, very straight but there’s something in the way that you’re looking at me right now that makes me hope (dream) that you’ll tell me that you’re gay and in love with me. I’ll be waiting patiently for your call.
Missy, Missy, Missy. What can I say. I wish you were gay. There, I’ve said it. There’s something about you that just screams GAY!to me. And although in this picture you’re nails are crazy long and possibly acrylic I know that you are not. I just wish you were.
Oprah Gayle. Gayle Oprah. Stedman (is that even how you spell it?) is your beard. I get it, I understand. I’m hoping that with your departure from network television and your new O Network that you’ll have a great opening show announcing your love. I realize that this is just a dream and that it will probably never come to fruition but this gay girl can dream.
Speaking of Dreams…Rose Rollins.
We all know that Rose Rollins was gay for pay but she did it so well. I was almost convinced that when she and Alice broke up that Rose would come to NYC looking for me to give her all the things that Alice could not. Sadly, it seems that Ms. Rollins is just gay for pay and therefore, not in love with me. In my dreams, though, she is. We’re incredibly happy. Planning a family, in fact.
Last, but certainly not least, I give you Queen Latifah.
According to BlackGayGossip.com Queen Latifah and her girlfriend/trainer/girlfriend bought a home together. Both names are on the deed. If this is true, Queen, will you please come out?
That’s it. Ladies I’d love to be gay. Happy Wednesday
