      i  think doing this show is her comming out!! they r trying soo hard to make this seem ok, to give ppl the comfortable notion that being gay is good, but its not! but the establishment will push this agenda that its cool for guys/girls to b this way, and its working!!!

    I don’t care if she ever comes out of the closet. She’s still one of the best and most respected to ever do it. You don’t have to be gay or bisexual to perform at a pride event. Get your paper mama…she stay keeping it classy and out of the streets

      I don’t think Snoop Dogg performing @ The Long Beach Lesbian and Gay Pride Festival would go over to well..do you?

    Can’t hate. Its 2012 people.  A large population is gay or whatever do you man and be happy. You’ll find the majority of haters who ain’t on it ain’t in your life circle to begin with.  But keep it real I ain’t gay. But coming from a judgemental box of a world you have to understand that your not free if you think your better than someone because they do something in the personal lives you don’t.
