WATCH: 'In Living Color' Star On LGBT Shame In Black Community

Is she gay? *** Fox primetime legend Kim Coles from "In Living Color" and "Living Single" came on HuffPost Live Thursday to discuss her new one-woman show, "Oh But Wait, There's More," and other issues brought to her by fans via Twitter and the HuffPost Live comment board. In response to a tweet asking about her feelings on how important it is for African Americans to break stereotypes in the LGBT community, Coles told HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont-Hill, "Of course I do think it's important for African-Americans to break stereotypes in the gay community. I think there's a lot of shame around being gay in our community and I think the more we talk about it and the more we embrace our brothers and sisters and our cousins and our friends and our pastors ... it's sad that your community thinks that you're not a man if you're not living this way."
