Queen Latifah On a Yacht in France With Her “Personal Trainer”

08/06/2010- by Natasia Langfelder

Here’s a fun photo of Queen Latifah, in a bathing suit on a yacht in France holding ‘personal trainer’ Jeanette Jenkins. Jenkins has been the Queen’s personal trainer for about ten years now and the two own a home together. Come OUT Queen Latifah or do you think you are too good to be a lesbian?

I’ve been criticized for being disappointed with Queen Latifah for not coming out of the closet and supporting LGBT civil rights. With President Obama setting a “separate but equal” standard for same-sex couples, we need as many visible LGBT celebrities as possible. It’s sad but true, in our celebrity obsessed culture pro-lgbt rights celebrities have a huge influence. Queen Latifah would make the biggest difference in the African-American community, where there is still a lot of homophobia. Mediatakeout.com, the most popular urban gossip website, posted pics of the two women and although there were some messages that supported the couple, there were a lot that were anti-gay and are calling Latifah a “man.” Maybe if she had come out in the 90s, they wouldn’t be calling her a man now.

    There you go judging someone who you know nothing about and think you have some facts from a bunch of various photos and whatever the media dishes out. Last time I look only GOD could judge and you definitly do not fit the bill. Let Ms. Owens enjoy her life with whomever she chooses just like you or anybody else do in this world. There are many celebrities who contribute behind the scenes to organizations, the town they grew up in that never make it to the media outlets. If she is gay why is it she must only be involved in gay issues there is so many other issues that need attention. What we really need is for more gay/lesbian folks to unite, support G/L activities and get involved in the issues at hand.

      Hey Mel…I think you agree with me? I’m not trying to be mean. Many straight celebs spoke out against Prop 8 and fight for LGBT rights. Queen Latifah IS in a same sex relationship, but she doesn’t face the problems that most of us, including many of her fans, face. She can make sure that Jenkins healthcare is covered, because she has money to throw around. Because we are denied marriage rights, we can’t always cover healthcare for our partners. If something should happen to Latifah, her partner would be taken care of. Meanwhile, our partners can’t recieve our pensions, property can be taken away unless one has a good lawyer. This is what is happening to people who have fought for all of us to be able find love with a a same sex partner, Queen Latifah doesn’t give a shit about anyone but herself, because she got rich and famous, partly due to her gay fans. That’s what irks me and that’s what I think is wrong. I respect her right to privacy, I don’t want to see a sex tape, but “The Prop 8 decision being overturned is great” would be nice to hear from her.

      Also, you KNOW if she fell in love with someone in a different country, she would pay off whoever she could to get her partner into the country, meanwhile, you can bet your butt you won’t see her supporting LGBT binationals.

    Maybe this IS her coming out… in some of the pictures she seems to know the camera people are there.
