Children of black celebrities rumored to be (or come out as) gay


Jay Kelly daughter of R. Kelly

As rolling out reported earlier this week, the daughter of singer R. Kelly has come out as a transgender man. Now going by the name Jay instead of Jaya we once again see a well adjusted individual supported unconditionally by their parents. According to In Touch Weekly, the 14-year-old boy has been open with his followers on his about his life and says that he identified as male since he was “6 or 7.”

“[My mom] was like, ‘Baby, you know I love you if you were bi, gay, [lesbian], you name it and I would still love you so much,’” he wrote.

“She was very proud of me. I was like, ‘Thank you mum for accepting the fact that I’m a transgender,’” he added.
