New York Undercover star Malik Yoba recently came out as trans-attracted in support of a young man who was cyber bullied to suicide after admitting his love for a trans-woman.
“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,” he captioned under a video of men bullying a man who said he has sex with trans women. “It is NOT about GENITALIA OR SEX but about attraction to the soul and humanity of an individual.”

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 🙏🏾
Well it didn’t take long for some of those trans he’s attracted to to come forward and give a different account of that love. According to facebook user Maria Lopez Ebony Malik prefers underage trans sex workers. She took to Facebook to tell her #metoo story.
From the post Maria insinuates they had a sexual relationship when she was underage which is wildly inappropriate. Those are strong accusations and I hope they are backed up with actual evidence.
I won’t victim-blame or victim shame. I will say that in the post she said two things that contradicted themselves.
- You never forget your celebrity clients
- I’m not trying to ride a wave.
I’m not saying that Malik didn’t do this. I’m saying there had better be proof and I’m curious which other of those hundreds of Johns are being persecuted by the law?
I’m not going to tell anyone to NOT tell their story because he’s an “ally.” I’m asking if the persecution begins and ends with the one who has the most clout.
After further review of Mariah’s page child advocacy and the decriminalization of sex trafficking seems to be her platforms. She supports the idea that two consenting adults can make a business arrangements but child sex-trafficking should be illegal. Which I agree with.
I’ll just end with saying I hope there is proof about the child rape allegations. We’ll see how it goes.
