Celebrate Black Queer Voices: Feb 16 - Wanda Sykes


How can you not love Wanda Sykes?  Ask someone to name five famous African Americans that are part of the LGBTQ community.  I'd bet next weeks pay check that 4 out 5 people are going to put Wanda Sykes on the list.  Wanda is hilarious and one of the most vocal members of our community.  It was during the push for marriage equality that Wanda ended up coming out publicly.  She decided that she could no longer stay silent when she repeatedly witnessed the injustices happening to same gender loving people.

There is something that is just likeable about this lady.  She is proud of her blackness and she is a proud member of the LGBTQ community.  And I am proud of her and her accomplishments.  Check out one of her stand up specials below:
