Actress and rapper Queen Latifah is set to headline this year’s annual Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival.

The occasion will be the first time she has participated at a Pride celebration.

Long Beach Co-President Pat Crosby stated, “From hip to R&B, pop to standards, Queen Latifah is the voice of our generation, and her concert here will be phenomenal, for her to make her worldwide Pride debut here in Long Beach is a tremendous testament to the popularity of our celebration and to the strength of our community.”

The festival takes place Saturday, May, 19 and with Latifah on board, is sure to be a bang.
