VIDEO: BET Profile Celebrating LGBT People of Color in Media

Got my entire life returning to a subject I love, POP CULTURE, yesterday, during my first solo hosting segment on HuffPost Live, where I discussed Beyonce’s TIME Cover, Scandal’s Columbus Short, Jon Hamm’s penis plea and of course Lupita’s Most Beautiful honor!
