Ray J On Celebrating Pride Month: “There Needs To Be More Straight N***s Giving Love To The Gay N***as”
It’s a Pride Month: a time where the LGBTQ communities come together and celebrate the freedom to be themselves. Many people including celebrities like Aunjanue Ellis, Elliot Page, Janelle Monáe, and more have been celebrating Pride month with discussions about sexuality and embracing your truest self. Supporter Ray J is the latest celeb to also do so.
In an 11 minute clip, Ray shares how he’s celebrating the month while encouraging people to properly “shout out” the community “the right way.” He says in the clip, “a lot of n***as that’s straight, they don’t be trying to shout out to the gay community and all my gay n***as the right way, so I got to do it because I want to make sure that I’m showing nothing but love, and I f*ck with y’all.”
Ray added, “we have multiple businesses together, I got a lot of friends.” The business mogul went on to say how he would like to see more support come from his straight friends: “I told my n***as that [there] needs to be more straight n***as giving love to the gay n***as. I hate using that n-word but it’s serious though.” Ray continued…
“I got a lot of gay friends and a lot of real n***as that’s gay and we make a lot of money together but it ain’t just about the money.” There needs to be more straight n***as showing love to the community… just need to be. You know? It’s like what [are you] afraid of? I don’t know what it is but it’s nothing but love over here.”
Ray J felt so compelled about supporting the LGBTQ community and giving them their flowers that he even made and interesting suggestion: “I want to sponsor the whole gay pride month and do Ray pride.”
What is the History of Pride Month and when were the first Pride Parade?
According to THEM,
“Following the Stonewall Riots, organizers wanted to build on that spirit of resistance. The following year, they organized a march to Central Park, and adopted the theme of “Gay Pride” as a counterpoint to the prevailing attitude of shame. That march down Christopher Street soon expanded to other cities, with many more joining in year over year through the 1970s until Pride became the massive celebration that we know today,” the site states.
