editor’s letter

Welcome to Our Pride Issue I grew up enjoying tap dancing, fashion, amateur theater, art and the Australian pop star Kylie Minogue. The only sport I really liked was skipping. Yep, I was picked on and labeled “gay” before I even knew what that meant. As other, more hateful words came my way, I learned that being called gay was a way to hurt me, to reinforce that I was alien, shameful and wrong. It was an isolating existence, as there were no LGBTQ role models. In the magazines I loved so much, men or women didn’t talk about being gay, bisexual or trans. There were no positive LGBTQ characters on television or same-sex couples holding hands on red carpets. So I hid in plain sight. I became someone I was not.…

Meghan Markle had planned for weeks to deliver an uplifting commencement address to the 2020 class of her alma mater in L.A., Immaculate Heart High School. But as protests unfolded around the country following the death of George Floyd, she decided to speak her mind. “She felt moved to say something publicly,” says a close source, “and this was an appropriate way to do it.” In her June 3 video speech to the teens, Meghan, 38—who has previously opened up about her experience as a biracial girl growing up in L.A.—shared her own memories of the 1992 riots sparked by the police beating of Rodney King. “I remember the curfew, and I remember rushing back home, and on that drive home seeing ash fall from the sky,” she said. “And I…

beyoncé’s empowering speech

Beyoncé believes the class of 2020 will “Run the World”—and make it better. On June 7 the singer, 38, gave a virtual commencement address during YouTube’s “Dear Class of 2020” event and praised grads for making it amid the coronavirus pandemic and a global uprising against police brutality toward black people. “Thank you for using your collective voice and letting the world know that black lives matter,” she said. The Grammy winner also got personal about her experience as a woman of color in the music industry and building her business. “Not enough black women had a seat at the table, so I had to go and chop down that wood and build my own table. Then I had to invite the best there was to have a seat,” Beyoncé…
