“I got  married, I came out publicly. But I had to, you know? I mean it was like  gays can get married, yay! Prop 8, I’m a second-class citizen, what the  fuck?! As a black woman, I’m really low on the chain, but as a GAY  black woman, I’m even lower! There are so many things I’ve had to do as a  gay person that I don’t have to do as a black person. I didn’t have to  come out black to my parents. Can you imagine that? ‘Mom, Dad, I need to  talk to you about something. I just want to tell you, I’m black.’  ‘What?!’  ‘I’m black, that’s just the way it is.’ ‘Oh Lord, oh, anything  but black! Give her cancer Lord! Anything but black! You know what,  you’ve been hanging around black people too much. And they got you  thinking you black.’ ‘No Ma, it’s just the way I am, I was born this  way.’ ‘Oh, don’t give me that! The bible says Adam and Eve, not Adam and  Mary J. Blige!’ ‘I’m sorry, It’s just how I am.’ ‘What did I do? What  did I do? I let you watch Soul Train! Was it Soul Train?’ ‘No Ma, it  wasn’t Soul Train…’
