R. Kelly’s 14-Year-Old Son Comes Out as a ‘Transguy’

Jay Kelly, the 14-year-old son of singer-songwriter R. Kelly, came out on his Facebook account last week, telling friends that he is transgender. Jay, formerly known as Jaya, says that he is a “transguy,” having identified himself as such since he was younger. Both Jay’s sister and mother, Andrea Kelly of Hollywood Exes, have accepted Jay and continue to love and support him. R. Kelly has yet to make a statement.

Hopefully with the media’s acceptance of Orange is the New Black Star, Laverne Cox, Jay’s transition will be well received. For details and a full statement from Jay, check out B. Scott’s article here.
