Later than never, Gloria Carter has clarified about her sexuality as a lesbian. The rumor of Gloria Carter being gay sparked when she allegedly dated Dania Diaz in 2013.

They came to know each other when Diaz joined Shawn Carter Foundation run by Gloria. Everything was just an assumption about her sexuality then, but everything is cleared out now.

In the later verse of the song “Smile,” Jay-z has rapping lines which say,

“Mama had four kids, but she’s a lesbian

Had to pretend so long that she’s a thespian

 Had to hide in the closet, so she medicate

Society shame and the pain was too much to take

Further, he went on to say; it doesn’t matter whether his mother is him/her. He sings,

“Don’t matter to me if it’s a him or her

I just wanna see you smile through all the hate

Marie Antoinette, baby, let ’em eat cake.

Smile starts with snippet from Stevie wonder and ends with the poem which describing Gloria Carter which is recited as,

“Living in the shadow
Can you imagine what kind of life it is to live?
In the shadows, people see you as happy and free
Because that’s what you want them to see
Living two lives, happy, but not free
You live in the shadows for fear of someone hurting your family or the person you love
The world is changing and they say it’s time to be free
But you live with the fear of just being me
Living in the shadow feels like the safe place to be
No harm for them, no harm for me
But life is short, and it’s time to be free
Love who you love, because life isn’t guaranteed

Many appreciated Gloria coming out as Lesbian and GLAAD President Sarah Kaye Ellis is one among them. She wrote,

“Lesbian women are all too often erased or excluded from narratives surrounding LGBTQ people. By sharing her truth with the world, Gloria Carter is increasing visibility of lesbian women of color at a critical time and sending a powerful message of empowerment to the entire LGBTQ community that is perfectly timed with the end of Pride Month.”

Lastly, we would like to give a round of applause for the decision of Gloria Carter. Well! Thanks to her son and his new song which must have helped her a lot in her decision.
