After prophetess Juanita Bynum
went through a public and very tumultuous divorce, she once referred to herself as the face of domestic violence
The woman of the word has since moved on from her relationship with Thomas Weeks, and now she credits having “purpose and destiny” for filling a longtime void from other negative periods of her life.
I’m not embarrassed about my conversions, and that’s why I’m not insecure about being around people who have issues and struggles.
Remember when I asked the question of who would be next after Frank Ocean came out? Well apparently Bynum’s on the list now that she’s openly admits that she’s been involved with woman.

, the author behind the explosive book Hiding in Hip Hop, Mogul and Visible Lives, sent over an open letter to Frank Ocean

As you know, Ocean recently published his own open letter, becoming the first hip-hop artist to openly discuss his relationship with another man.
Ocean’s decision to do so could push musical boundaries, however it’s clear that his words may also heal heal a lot of wounds. With that being said, read the poignant words of author Terrance Dean, who knows first hand that there are even more artists out there “Hiding in Hip Hop.”
An open letter to Mr. Christopher Breaux, “Frank Ocean”:
Over the course of the past few days I read on the blogs, and saw a few tweets chattering about an R&B artist coming out. Your name surfaced, along with an interview you did overseas, and then you wrote on Tumblr about a relationship you had four years ago with a young man. You shared how it changed your life, and how that young man was your first love.
Initially, when I first heard the news about an R&B artist coming out I wasn’t moved. I actually thought it was a hoax created by someone. As we all know how well internet gossip fuels outings, pre-mature deaths, and other lies about celebrities. So, I dismissed it. I was waiting for you, or your publicist, to issue their pre-made ready-to-go written statement For Artists Who Are Considered Gay When The Rainbow Is Not Enuff: “I am not gay. I did not come out. I am a heterosexual man, and I love women.” However, that didn’t happen. Continue Reading…
has made what many feel is a shocking revelation… he has publicly confirmed suspicions that he has sexual feelings for men.
Questions about the 24 year old singer’s sexuality surfaced when lyrics on his forthcoming album Channel Orange revealed that he could possibly be bisexual. After receiving an advance copy of the release, a UK blogger noted that Ocean made references to a “he” instead of a “she” on a couple of ballads, prompting the rumor mill to swirl.
The singer released a letter last night via twitter that he reportedly wrote back in December 2011, prefaced by the following statement:
BasedGod was right – we’re all a bunch of golden million dollar babies. my hope is that the babies born these days will inherit less of the bullshit than we did. anyhow, what i’m about to post is for anyone who cares to read.
it was intended to fill the thank you’s section in my album credits, but with all the rumors going round.. i figured it’d be good to clarify..
The typewritten letter, which reveals Ocean’s thoughts and feelings about his sexuality and was released early in light of the rumors.
While I feel that it’s clearly a non-muthflockin’ factor if Ocean is gay or straight, he is certainly entitled to speak his peace, especially if he feels “outed.”

What City is the gayest of the gay? It was Atlanta a few years back
. But not anymore!
I suspect that The Real Housewives of Atlanta had a lot to do with ATL being granted the title, but being as though Dwight Eubanks, Lawrence Washington & Derek J are featured less and less on the show, it looks like we’ve manage to slowly tumble down on the list.
The Advocate recently named this year’s “Gayest City,” and while Atlanta no longer resides at the number one spot, we still happen to fall in the top 10.
So what city ranked GAYEST for 2011? Was it Miami? San Francisco? New York?
Check out the rankings below… Continue Reading…
It’s a new year and it’s time to learn new stuff.
A close friend of mine once said that Atlanta women carry Ghey boys around like purses but that has absolutely nothing to do with this post so I don’t even know why I wrote it.
Anywhoo… fellow blogger Kid Fury has created an online tutorial of sorts about Ghay boy lingo for those of you who aren’t fortunate enough to have one of your own in your accessory collection.
Get you some Black Ghay lingo to add to your vocabulary below…
17 year old Eric Bivins spent an entire school day in a jail cell last week. His crime? Wearing a girl’s outfit to class….
On the morning August 18th, Bivins, a senior at Coffee High school in Douglas, Georgia, rocked the purple printed skirt ensemble shown in the photograph above and he was promptly escorted off campus.
The teen, who is CLEARLY openly gay, says that throughout his academic career, he has always been told to express himself and stay true to who he is, but an act of self-expression is what ultimately led him to the county jail.
Maybe the Mean Girls of Morehouse should organize a march on Coffee County…
