This world we live in has grown to become accepting of some individuals. While not all of humanity can stand the changes nor support others decisions to be who they are and with whom they choose. There are those of us who accept people no matter what their color, their ethnicity, or their sexuality. If, "It doesn't matter if your black or white", why should it matter if your homosexual or heterosexual. We all breathe the same air, roam the same cities, and have the ability to feel just as much as the next person. Although, many people don't see it that way, and are simply ignorant to the fact that times have changed.
Television shows like "Grey's Anatomy", "Glee", "Real World" "Ru-Paul's Drag Race", "Degrassi", and many more have shown the pride behind being homosexual and the difficulties they face on a personal level, and in society. The fact that homosexuality has become mainstream shows that "Gay Pride", is not all the negative things people who don't understand or experience make it out to be, and people of political and celebrity stature like Barak Obama, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Frank Ocean, and many others have come out and publicly admitted to being homosexual, written music to inspire, or are in full support of "Gay Rights."
No matter if they call it genetic, a disease, or a fad there are people who consider their sexuality a lifestyle or simply put it's just who they are and what they enjoy. Who are we (those individuals who choose to go against Gay Rights) to judge someone for who they love or who they choose to be intimate with, when not so long ago black and whites, or anyone of mixed race couldn't sit next to each other let alone be in love, have children, or be married. Is it wrong for these individuals to be neglected their right to be who they are or choose to be whether it means difference in their genders style of dressing, who they marry, or how they act.
It’s a passion and a desire that only some truly explore or feel and it's a part of our culture as human beings to accept their decisions as individuals. Being different is something we all deal with at one point or another in our lives, but does being a homosexual make you different? There is not one person on this planet that doesn't have a family member or friend that is Gay, so why can't it be as natural as a man and a woman? and if YOU DISAGREE is it on its way to being a natural part of life or society? Don’t get me wrong not everyone is OUT. There are still many in the closet whether ashamed of who they are or what they prefer, whether they don't feel society is ready for their exposure, or that their wives or husbands won’t accept their true nature.
The lovely ladies of OWWHH love to see a fierce confident Queen in action, and more than that love having them around. Their style is undeniable, their makeup is always fierce, and they are usually better to have around because their "drama", usually will have you rolling on the floor. There is so much to living the lifestyle of our Queens, Gays, Lesbians, and/or Homosexual’s than we average folks realize, and tonight we are going to indulge ourselves in their culture, the criticisms they face, their language, style, and societal views on being who they are in today's day and age. We have so many angles to touch on this subject, but we will have FUN FIRST and foremost because "Our Queens" love a good show and WE know you love to watch. The ladies of OWWHH are going in HARD! ;)
Special Guest: Rapper Nasty Nick
Rapper Nasty Nick was born and raised in Staten Island, New York. At the age of 9 years Old Nick was both introduced & intrigued by hip hop. Raised in the Suburbs of NYC growing up was a bit different for Nick being of Puerto Rican and Irish descent and living on the South Shore of Staten Island. Nick decided to venture out on his own at the age of 18; this definitely set Nick apart from his peers. With affiliations to Rapper Foxy Brown since early 2000, Foxy was always an inspiration as an artist & he loved her persona too.
Unfortunately, Foxy suffered hearing loss in the mid 2000’s but her loss had only inspired Nick even more to create classic hip hop music, as Foxy Brown did. As a full time college student and full time worker it wasn’t always easy to make ends meet. It was that depression, anxiety & responsibility that really drove Nasty Nick to pursue his musical endeavors. After forming the group D.A.D.T. with fellow rapper and Islander Anna Monroe – Nasty spent much of much of 2009, 2010 and 2011 recording & engineering music for D.A.D.T. - what would have been Hip Hop’s next big super group.
“Although the project never came to life, it was a great experience, I think you learn the most about yourself from working with other people & we’re still great friends - Anna will be on the album ‘Lost in the Shuffle’.”
Over the past several years Nick has been working his way around the underground scene in New York City and is a regular at Pyramid’s EOW open-mic night. Nick is planning a new assault on the New York Metro area when he releases his Debut Album “Lost in the Shuffle” via iTunes on February 14, 2011. “They ain’t ready”, Nick laughs – “my stage Presence is bananas.”
With club anthem’s like “FIRE” & “Drinks to the Ceiling” Nasty plans on hitting the Hip Hop club scene pretty hard, and on this album you are sure to get your share of introspective tracks like the lead single “Lost in the Shuffle” to coincide the classic hip hop sounds of “Make it hot” & “Kiss the Boys” to name a few.
“My album definitely has something for everybody, and yeah, I’m the Gay rapper, but first – I’m a rapper. That’s always first and foremost. . . It’s been quite the adventure over the past year making this album, pleasure, pain – blood, sweat and tears. I only hope to inspire other people and to create a voice for those of us who don’t have a voice in hip hop – Valentine’s Day, 2012 you can be the judge! Get your copy on iTunes!”
