June 28, 2014 ‐ By Deron Dalton
 LBTQ Black Women Part Two


It’s the end of Pride Month, which in New York City is known as Gay Pride Weekend and where the Gay Rights Movement started on June 28, 1969 with the Stonewall Riots. MadameNoire has a list of more black women who have helped paved the way for being gay, black and woman.

These famous black women are out and proud and some are major LGBTQ advocates and activists.

Like 15 previous famous and prominent black women MN covered who have broke down barriers, these black women are part of a growing list of out and proud celebrities, gay celebrities of color and celesbians.

    Why are all the stories formatting all jacked up? The picture and story is smashed to the right side of the screen. I can’t even see the whole picture and the article looks ridiculous. Every story I click on here on Madame Noire is jacked up.

    Like the chance to change their sexual preferences – some of them.

    Wait….I thought Melanie Brown was married to a man? They have a 3-year old…oh ok then.

    Angela Davis a “Socialist”? That’s it? She was on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List for murder and domestic terrorism.

  • Kimm Anderson Bernier Irving

    QUEER???? WHO says that??? Shame on them for letting that one fly!

  • Bubbah

    The person writing the comments for the photos SHOULD BE FIRED ASAP!! They think they are superior to those they are writing about. Calling another person “queer” is just as insulting as being called nizzer by a white person.

    I love Angel Haze’s response to this: “People ask me what my sexuality is all the time and I always tell them that it doesn’t matter, we’re not in a sexual situation so you don’t need to know. If we were in a sexual situation, you would know exactly who I am sexually.” Homosexuals don’t run around announcing their bedmates!! Unless these women are gay rights activists, why does it matter who they’re sleeping with? I don’t even know who half these women are – but Mel B??? really???

    Not for nothing but…isn’t this like the third time in almost as many weeks this topic has come up? I’m not against that lifestyle nor do I judge but…wow, it seems like we’ve seen this a lot. :/

    • hollyw

      I think because June is Pride month. This week is a lot of city’s pride week.

    Queer? I thought that word was a no-no? And celesbian? Really?

    • boogie

      In the academic world Queer Studies is a term very much still accepted. So, maybe that’s where the author thought it would be cool.

    • hollyw

      The LGBT community recently “took back” the word – some people compare it to [some of] the black community’s N-word re- ownership- hence, now the LGBTQ community.
