Malik Yoba Thanks Public For Support After Announcing He’s Attracted To Transgender People + Accused Of Having Sex With Underaged Trans Women

Malik Yoba recently dropped a bomb about his sexuality, after speaking up on the tragic suicide of Maurice “Reese” Willoughby. Reese endured devastating bouts of bullying due to being in a relationship with a trans-woman. Malik posted a graphic clip of Reese being harassed in the streets about his relationship while admitting that he, too, is attracted to trans-women.

ATTENTION BLACK AND ALL MEN!!! THIS IS NOT OK!!!!! This video is another heartbreaking example of the homophobia, transphobia hatred and hypocrisy WE as black folks, BLACK MEN in particular have to NAME , FACE and CALL OUT and do the work to heal!!! THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I WILL BE AT @transmarchondc ????hosting a workshop called LOVE + TRAUMA: The Trans Experience on Sept 27 2019 ( details TBD ) His name was Maurice “Reese” Willoughby, a 20 yr old baby who killed himself from an apparent drug overdose after his girlfriend left him due to abuse. Clearly as evidenced in this video this young man was confident in his choice to love who he loved but the uninformed young men around him haven’t been taught BY US that love is love and acceptance of Trans love is ok and bullying has nothing to do with masculinity or HETEROSEXUAL behavior. Ultimately his mental and emotional health was not intact enough and the fragility of his life as he saw it was too much to bear. Often times this type of shame and ridicule can lead to the murders of women of the trans experience . NOT OK!! Clearly he didn’t get the support of his peers who think that toxicity = masculinity and humanity. That being a “real man” means we must disrespect and demean those that FIND themselves attracted to women of the trans experience. The fact that he was trans attracted presumably meant that he had no safe space to go to find the support he needed to learn to navigate love of a woman of the trans experience in a world that constantly tells you you’re wrong. TRANS PEOPLE DESERVE LOVE AND RESPECT AS DO THOSE OF US THAT LOVE THEM!! I love ALL women AND count MYSELF among those that find themselves trans attracted and I too have felt the self imposed shame that comes with that truth but it’s time to speak up. It is NOT about GENITALIA OR SEX but about attraction to the soul and humanity of an individual and often the beauty that is in the courage and conviction to live ones truth! As a self identified cis heterosexual man I too am learning what it means to be trans attracted. Many of us famous and otherwise that have struggled with accepting our attraction so we do NOTHING. This MUST change ??

Malik Yoba revealed:

“I love ALL women AND count MYSELF among those that find themselves trans attracted and I too have felt the self imposed shame that comes with that truth but it’s time to speak up. It is NOT about GENITALIA OR SEX but about attraction to the soul and humanity of an individual and often the beauty that is in the courage and conviction to live ones truth! As a self identified cis heterosexual man I too am learning what it means to be trans attracted. Many of us famous and otherwise that have struggled with accepting our attraction so we do NOTHING.”

He even retweeted a tweet alleging that the Hollywood community has known for years that he is interested in trans-women.

He is, now, thanking fans and followers for their support of his truth in his own Instagram video. Malik’s caption read:

“@malikyoba Happy Labor Day Fam!! Thank you all who have reached out to me with love and support over the last 24 hours. Thank you @bet and all others who have spread this message of hope that it is ok to be who the F*CK you are no matter what other ppl say as long as you ain’t hurting nobody. Fear and shame should not be our gods. Freedom and love of all of HUMAN-ity should be the order of the day! SEE YOU IN DC FOR @transmarchondc AND Love + Trauma : The Trans Experience. Go to site for all upcoming details”

The “Last O.G.” star said:

“We’re human beings, and we’re all part of the God Body. So, unfortunately, a part of our mechanism is we need to judge and categorize and ostracize and vilify and demonize the things we don’t understand…it’s gonna take an effort from everybody. And I’ve got three children, and I apologize to my own children, ’cause my kids got some foul messages from folks thinking that it’s okay because you don’t understand something. Just because you don’t understand something does not make it wrong.”

He continued:

“I don’t even understand all of it. But I’m willing to ask questions. I’m willing to align myself to get close to, so that I can understand…the most interesting people in the world are also the most interested…I want all trans-men – my brothers out there that don’t feel that you’re connected to the Black male experience because cis-gender men don’t f*ck with you – I’m telling you I’m here for you as well. I’m here for everyone.”

Meanwhile, a trans-woman named Mariah Lopez Ebony alleges that Malik Yoba engaged in sex acts with underaged transsexual prostitutes in the 90’s, aged as young as 13-years-old. Read the thread below:
