Diamonds are Forever: The Aunye Diamond interview
So in the spirit of showing diversity on my site I decided to bring Ms Aunye Diamond to give us The Scoop on her and her life.
Who is Ms. Aunye Diamond?
Aunye Iman Diamond is just an illusion, she is my (Jae) Alter-ego she does thing that I just won't do. She is an business woman,entertainer and trendsetter.
Who was it that inspired you to be a female illusionist?
Do you remember the first time you transformed and if so what was it like for you?
WOW the day I transform was a long long long day for me, thinking about a name, what to wear, make-up, hair, song chose again it was a turn about show but i was putting to much into it, because where I am from the entertainers don't play this is their life so I had to make an impact. My sister was a big supporter (Keera St. James Houston) R.I.P. she did my make-up help me get my body (lol) right, and she stood by me 100%.
What was your breaking point that helped you realize you wanted to be gay/bisexual?
Well i never had a breaking point I was always interested in boys, when my brother, cousin and friends where chasing girls I was in the house playing dress up in my female cousin clothes lol. Now as I got older I played the straight boy role, I had girlfriends only to fit in with my peers and what came out of all that was a daughter. Now my daughter means everything to me, and by the way her name is Aunye also, she is my heart. My 2nd year in college it was time for me to live the life I wanted to and coming out of the "closet" and I didn't care what no one thought about me.
Do you remember how you came out to your family if you have?
What are your views on gay marriage?
My views on gay marriage............... I feel that the bible and law should not coinside. The law makers always refer to the bible as a reference when the bible was written over by man. But when it come to the law, the goverenment should not be able to tell me who I can and can't love or marry.
ok We are gonna get to some fun questions lol
How did you feel when Ricky Martin finally came out?
Who are some of your favorite people to impersonate?
My favorite person is Mary J. Blige but I also enjoy Whitney Houston (old Whitney)
What are some of the other activities you enjoy?
Well I enjoy my career, Cosmetology and Make-up, I love to sewing and just being around family. I am a big fan of a healthy family, weather it is my gay family or my biological family, my biological family knows my gay family and my gay kids respect that and they call my daughter their sister, and they call my father pops and mother g.mom and so forth. So I really enjoy a happy family.
So actually how many Diamond kids do you have? lol
With the 2012 elections fastly approaching do you honestly think Sarah Palin has a chance?
To be totally honest I really do think that Sarah Palin has a chance. The reason I say this is because it is not possible for Obama to pull this country back together in one term and so many people think that he is not doing enough but when u look at it in detail he also have to answer to people as well. In the meantime the Republican are growing stronger and the democratic are slowly drifting away now that we have a black President lets stick beside him 100%. There will be some things that we will not agree with but remember everything is done for a reason and just because we don't see the reason, he has our interest at heart to better assist us as needed.
What is something you would tell a young man or woman who is struggling with there sexuality?
Is there anything else that you would like to say?
