The (Ree)lationship Guide: VH1’s Evelyn Lozada and Chrissy Lampkin Are Further Exploiting Lesbian Intimacy

VH1's Chrissy and Evelyn during a photoshoot for an apparent magazine spread

Pictures of Chrissy (from VH1’s “Love and Hip-Hop”) and Evelyn (from VH1’s “Basketball Wives”) touching each others (ass)ets for an apparent magazine shoot surfaced the net this week. Both ladies are currently engaged to be married to men. While everyone is entitled to keep their sexuality private, I wonder how rap artist Jim Jones and NFL player Chad Ochocinco reacted to seeing their wives-to-be fondle one another. I know specifically the rap industry is an advocate of “girl-on-girl” interaction; however, I believe the industry is exploiting lesbian relationships. Oftentimes majority of the women participating in said interactions are influenced by a paycheck and/or fame. How often do you see Evelyn or Chrissy advocating for gay marriage?* Why haven’t they used their “celebrity” platforms to speak out against the stereotyping of lesbians (or females who are bisexual) in the African American community? It’s my belief that they are attempting to emulate what they believe most men like- lesbian intimacy- for the sake of selling their feature.

Celebrities like Chrissy and Evelyn should not emulate the lifestyle of the LGBT community, specifically lesbians or women who are bisexual, unless they are willing to shed light on the day-to-day challenges women who actually live this lifestyle face in the African American community. They are further feeding into the exploitation (spearheaded by the hip-hop community) to make bisexuality and lesbianism appear to be a fad as opposed to an actual way of living.

Fans must challenge celebrities like Evelyn and Chrissy to use their celebrity platform to cease the exploitation of  lesbian intimacy.

 

*Note: I’m familiar with Evelyn’s involvement with the “No H8” campaign. I’m challenging her to do more.
