Hilariously funny comedian Wanda Sykes has come out of the closet. Well sorta. According to her, she was never in hiding. “You know, I don’t really talk about my sexual orientation. I didn’t feel like I had to,” Sykes said. “I was just living my life, not necessarily in the closet, but I was living my life.” Wanda felt compelled to speak out after the outcome of the state vote two weeks ago, and the passage of Proposition 8.
“I’m proud to be a woman. I’m proud to be a black woman, and I’m proud to be gay,” she said. “That’s the way people should be able to live their lives.”
