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."

Almost immediately, skeptics accused the woman of glueing herself to the toilet seat in hopes of a big payday. Loctite GO2 glue is described as "construction grade super glue, usually only available online."

Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada PinkettOn Tuesday, actress, wife and mother Jada Pinkett-Smith wrote an eyebrow raising post on her Facebook page.

She wrote about 3 of her female friends, women in their 40s, who confided in her that their "last resort for companionship" is with another woman.

Jada seems to be laying the groundwork for what many believe will be a personal revelation.

Mrs. Smith has been the subject of lesbian rumors for years. She has steadfastly denied the rumors. But today something changed.
