Neighbor Barbara brings the glamorous TV celebrity news that Emkay Nobilette, a contestant on the current American Idol, is an OG Bernal native:

I noticed on sfgate that an SF kid made the top 30. I sent the link to my daughter (away at college) who recognized her as her schoolmate at Buena Vista who used to live up the street from us on Treat. I haven’t seen her in almost 10 years so had no idea we knew her. Now I have a reason to tune into Idol again!

Emkay Nobilette is also the first openly gay contestant on American Idol. You can watch her sing — and come out — right here:

  2. Or did I mis-interpret the title? Is it supposed to read like “First American idol contestant to be raised in bernal heights… who also happens to be gay”?

  3. I would love for the phrase “openly gay” to be permanently retired. You wouldn’t say openly _____ (fill in the blank… white/black/straight/curly haired/disabled/whatever). My pet peeve.
