Jaah Kelly Fell Into Depression After Coming Out As Trans & Lesbian

R Kelly’s daughter Jaah Kelly came out as trans & lesbian 4 years ago and she’s been remarkably praised for having the courage to do so publicly in a world where heterosexuals are seen and treated like an outcast.
She named herself Jay Kelly and revealed she’s a transgender and a lesbian. She gave details of her sexuality and the challenges she faced after coming out as trans on Paper Magazine.

“When I posted that video, I was so scared,” says Jaah about a post she made, coming out as trans. “When I was younger, I always felt like I had to make a choice. I knew that I was a girl who liked other girls. But because of what I was taught, I felt like the only way you could like another girl is if you were a boy.” 


Jaah started wearing men’s clothing and during her interview, she recalled a time when she and her sister Buku Abi attended Chicago Pride when one woman called her out for using the women’s bathroom.

Jaah fell into a deep depression after coming out as trans, entering herself into a psychiatric hospital for three weeks. These days though, she’s comfortable referring to herself as a lesbian.

 “I identify as a lesbian, I know I like girls, but that’s as far as I’ll go to label myself,” Jaah said. “It’s up to you how you see me. Either way, I don’t care. I stand in my truth, and why does my truth need a label?”
She’s really a strong being for going through all of that and coming out strong.
