Justice Smith Comes Out As Queer, Goes Public With ‘Queen Sugar’ Star

Published: Saturday 6th Jun 2020 by Sam

Justice Smith has gone public with his truth.

For, the actor – who is renown for his roles in ‘The Get Down’ and ‘Jurassic World’ – has come out as queer.

And he’s done so alongside his ‘Queen Sugar’ star boyfriend Nicholas Ashe.

Full story below…

Smith, 24, made the reveal on Instagram in a lengthy post about his all-encompassing support of #BlackLivesMatter and how it must include Black Queer Lives too.

At the end of the entry, he declares his love for Ashe and explains that he included pics of the couple to celebrate #BlackQueerLove:

@nckash and I protested today in New Orleans. We chanted ‘Black Trans Lives Matter’ ‘Black Queer Lives Matter’ ‘All Black Lives Matter’. As a black queer man myself, I was disappointed to see certain people eager to say Black Lives Matter, but hold their tongue when Trans/Queer was added. I want to reiterate this sentiment: if your revolution does not include Black Queer voices, it is anti-black. If your revolution is okay with letting black trans people like #TonyMcDade slip through the cracks in order to solely liberate black cishet men, it is anti-black. You are trying to push yourself through the door of a system designed against you, and then shut the door behind you. It is in our conditioning to get as close to whiteness, straightness, maleness as we can because that’s where the power is. And if we appeal to it, maybe it’ll give us a slice. But the revolution is not about appeal. It is about demanding what should have been given to us from the beginning. What should have been given to black, queer, and trans individuals from the beginning. Which is the right to exist. To live and prosper in public. Without fear of persecution or threat of violence.
There is so much tragedy on the timeline these last couple of days so I added some photos of me and Nic to show some #blackboyjoy #blacklove #blackqueerlove ❤️💛💚💙💜 You’ve been my rock and guiding light through all of this and I love you so much. I know that on the other side of this Is change, though the fight is far from over.
