!! OMG, welcome to the club: Supermodel Patricia Velasquez comes out as gay !!

The world’s first Latina Supermodel, Patricia Velasquez, has opened up about her sexuality in her new book, Straight Walk where she recalls that:

“While working in the modelling world in the 1990s, she was living a lie that was “tortuous” and “eroding my soul bit by bit,” according to Yahoo Parenting.

Patricia was inspired to come out after teaching her own daughter, 8-year-old Maya, about being honest and being proud.

“It’s very difficult to face your past, so I put off doing anything like this for a long time,” she told Yahoo Parenting. “But as my daughter started growing up and I was teaching her to be honest and proud, I knew it was time for me to set an example — and that meant facing my truth. For me, living life with truth and honesty is the one thing I want to make sure she understands.”

Patty also discusses her relationship with comedian Sandra Bernhard, whom she met backstage at a fashion show and that after they hooked up, Velasquez struggled with what had happened and slept with a male fashion photographer.

“In my head I thought, ‘I just wanted to prove one thing, and I did.’ There was no middle ground for me — a person was gay or not gay. Being gay was not for me.” But she went on to date Bernhard exclusively, without labeling herself. “I was deeply in love with Sandra in a way I’d never experienced before.”

Welcome to the club Patricia, and thanks for showing lipsticks out there everywhere that it’s okay be who you are.

!! OMG, Sandra Bernhard sang Britney Spear’s “Circus” last night at the opening of a Khiel’s !!

If someone says to you “Oh, Sandra Bernhard?! She would play the opening of a KHIELS!” they may not be throwing shade — they may just be providing the FACTS!
Last night, Sandra Bernhard burst into her incredible rendition of Britney Spears“Circus” during a new Kiehl’s store opening in Hell’s Kitchen in New York City. (I haven’t heard this good of a cover of Circus since back when Sienna D’Enema covered it!)
The event was to honour the Ali Forney Center which works to provide housing for young people in New York City. (Um, YA! Unless daddy is paying your rent, how the f*ck else are you supposed to live there?) Thank you, Sandra Bernhard for karaokeing for a kause!
