Rapper, Cover Girl model, singer, and actress, Queen Latifah is scheduled to headline the Long Beach Gay & Lesbian Pride Festival. Co-President of the Long Beach Pride Fest, Pat Crosby expressed how significant Latifah's performance is to the Long Beach LGBT community.

Crosby stated:

“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.”

The Queen's headlining is not an official "coming out" statement, but we love the fact that she is confident and supportive of the LGBT community to share her talents!

The website still hasn't yet posted the rest of the star-studded lineup. We are excited to see who else will be taking the stage.
