Stand up for what they believe! If celebrities are frank like Lady Gaga, extremely supportive as Miley Cyrus or ready to fight on social media like Marlon wayans, many express their dedication to the LGBTQ community.
Wayans, who is a proud father of an openly gay daughter named Amai, is not afraid to share his story. During Pride Month in June 2019, the Scary Movie The actor posted a heartfelt tribute to Amai and was quick to strike back when he received backlash from some fans.
“Happy pride to my pride and joy,” Wayans captioned a sweet Instagram photo of his girl. “I wouldn’t change a damn thing about you. I love you to the moon around the sun through the galaxies and vice versa. “
And when a troll took to the comment section saying his daughter wasn’t “old enough” to understand her sexuality, papa bear’s claws came out.
“She is 19 years old”, White girls star joked. “She is who she is until or until no [sic] choose different. Love her for her, not for what I want her to be. ”He also explained why it was important for him to address trolls on the subject.
“I thought about erasing [the derogatory comments] but I need the world to see the ignorance that still exists ”, explained the actor. “Aiming without obstacles is a useless triumph. We will all come to unconditional love one day. Thanks to my daughter I am one step closer. I am not God, I do not judge, I just LOVE. And I still pray for those who hate me because I refuse to judge them also just for love. “
Meanwhile, Gaga often talks about her “moral obligation” to stand up for gay rights and accept people for who they are. Cyrus, for her part, has been a great advocate for the LGBT community for years, even declaring in 2015 that she is pansexual, which means that gender and biological sex are not factors in her love life.
