Malik Yoba has spoken out in defense of the trans community, and wants the world to know that he loves trans women!

"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," Yoba wrote via Instagram.

Yoba also shared a video of Maurice Willoughby, a young man who recently committed suicide after being bullied for dating a trans woman.

"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."

The Hollywood actor continued, "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."
