Ciara Covers HX:
Ciara on becoming a gay icon: I would love it if people said I was an icon period. A fan is a fan to me. It’s a blessing no matter your race or gender, whether you’re gay, lesbian or whatever. I live for inspiring people and seeing them rock to my music.
On what it would take to become a Ciara drag queen: Well, you got to work it, honey. You got to know how to hit the floor, tip it off, get buck and whoop your head nice and hard. Glam it up, but don’t over-glam it. And just go hard.

MondoHomo 2009: Can Gay Hip-Hop Be Taken Seriously?
Planet Ill writer Shelby Powell offers a straight perspective on the gay hip-hop movement:
"The desire to crossover in many of these artists seems to be waning though. The long-fought battle has been relatively fruitless, relegating the musicians to gay underground status and producing the occasional lyrical pot shot at the lameness of radio friendly Hip-Hop. Most seem to have come to the realization that acceptance from throngs of straight Hip-Hop lovers is beyond their grasp; hence their targeting of fans within their own community. However, a quick trip through a fantasy land where rappers are judged solely on ability would put some of these folks at the top of the Hip Hop food chain. Feel how you want about their “lifestyle choice,” the bottom line is some of these emcees are just dope."
