    This is so beautiful. Let me tell y’all a lot of black people have a lot of homophobia and transphobia because we’ve already been fighting so hard for our humanity in terms of race, so to add queerness on top of that seems impossible. But we must understand we don’t have to be just like our oppressors to be successful. Thank you, Dwayne. You’re doing so much good.

    I don’t think I could support my child for being gay at that age smh I guess I don’t need to be having children anytime soon if I feel this way

    To see a black family support and love and understand and listen to her is beautiful and many black families need to take note and support their kids and not create a stigma around important social issues and need to watch how they talk about social issues around their kids because they never know what their children are going through

    You know when a man loves his woman or a woman loves her man, s/he never stops talking about him/her, even when the subject is not necessarily about him/her. Dwayne truly loves his wife
