Former Miss Kentucky Comes Out

Former Miss Kentucky comes out

Djuan Trent, pictured right, came out of the closet in a blog post in response to her state’s decision to not recognize out-of-state gay marriages.

“I am queer,” wrote Trent, who was crowned Miss Kentucky in 2011.

“For a while, I struggled with the decision of whether or not it was necessary to ‘come out,'” the 27-year-old natural beauty wrote in a post on her blog. “…I have realized that there is really no way for people to know that I disagree with their views or, even moreso, to know that they are talking about me, unless I actually open my mouth and say it. I am queer.”

According to Yahoo news, Trent is the first publicly known lesbian contestant to have competed at a national level.

A federal judge ruled Kentucky’s ban on recognizing same-sex marriages from other states was unconstitutional.

Gov. Steven L. Beshear of Kentucky said the state would hire outside lawyers to defend the state’s same-sex marriage ban.

But Kentucky’s Attorney General Jack Conway said he would not appeal the judge’s ruling because “I would be defending discrimination. That I will not do.”

    @ deedeegirl: When I was a little girl grown women were always molesting me. My mom had a friend who would get drunk and try to have her way with me, but I always resisted because her breath stank. One day she drunkenly called me a bull dagger. I was 9. I asked my mom what that meant. My mom just told me to be quiet. Summary: watch your children around your friends. :coffee:

    She says that like a person can’t defend gay rights and be an activist unless they are gay. I just don’t get these comings out. Live your life and do you. When people see you are 40 years old with a same sex “roommate”, they will figure out it. No need to announce it. :coffee:

    Where that period is, THAT is where I stopped.

    That situation is not funny in the least bit but Sandra a dayum fool for insinuating that the only reason why she resisted was because the lady breath was stank. :ghost:

    Because living your life, walking hand in hand in the combat boot aisle of Gander Mountain, or posting a pic of you and your boo on Facebook like straight folks wouldn’t have gotten the message across

    My little cousin “came out”, no family meeting needed… she posted some pics of her hugged up on a chick on IG. The family did a collective “Oh :coffee: ” and life went on

    :hug: Oh, Sandra, that’s horrific!

    You know your story sounds similar to Marlene Dietrich’s daughter, who said her mother allowed her to be raped by her lesbian nanny as a child! I would never disrespect your mom, but I don’t see how a mother could allow something that horrible to happen to their child (and a few people not turn up missing :tea: ) smh :no:

    deedeegirl says:

    @Sandra I’m really very sorry that happened to you. Taking advantage of children is the lowest of the low. I’m always aware of the potential, you have to be as a mother. As a rule, people allowed inside my home are strictly limited to a very close circle. My child outside my home is always with me unless he is at school. My mother grew up with her mother’s many men friends trying to do the same thing to her as was done to you. As a result, to use her words, she raised us with a “nasty mind” which is to say she was always suspicious of anyone coming around because she had three girls. I have one son but the tradition continues. I have heard horror stories, I do not trust anyone.

    I have a very good friend who’s husband did some time for raping his own daughter. She is still with this man. As much as I care for her, my son is never allowed to spend time in his company.

    @Jenie

    lilMissy used to love She ain’t my girl by Try Songz when she was around 3. After I realized she was picking up on what I listened to, it was kiddie music all the time. Even now it’s radio disney when we in the car. My mom was the same way with us. Ioono just trying to keep her innocent until she decides otherwise.

    I wasn’t clear. My mom didn’t let anything happen. Nothing was done in her presence. My mom had no idea what a bull dagger was.

    Oh Sandra. So much to say. I’ll be in Atlanta soon. Maybe we can connect. Over the phone. I don’t do face to face. From some of your statements in the past, it seems like you’ve over come. Then again sometimes it doesn’t. That’s molestation for you. Oprah, I believe it was, spoke about cooking breakfast for her molester. She was an adult, and knew what he did, yet was still cooking for him. Its tricky. Because of the victims age. Because of the shame. The guilt. Its overwhelming and just all around confusing. Good luck girl. At least you’re not afraid.
