During a performance at a festival in California, the 20-year-old son of actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith addressed the crowd at Camp Flog Naw during his set.

“I just wanna say Tyler, the Creator is the best friend in the world and I love him so f***ing much, and I wanna tell you guys something,” Jaden Smith said, in a moment that was filmed by someone at the front of the stage.

He later tweeted: “Yup @tylerthecreator I told everyone you can’t deny it now.”

Tyler was seen in the video laughing and shaking his head. He later replied to Smith’s tweet: “Hahaha you a crazy n***a man.”

While accepting her child’s transition was not always easy, Cher has continually voiced support for her transgender son, Chaz. “For the people who don’t understand it, I try to help them understand by saying, you know, ‘I just love being a woman so much, but if I woke up tomorrow and I was a man I couldn’t function,'” Cher has said. “And that’s the only way to describe it to someone who doesn’t understand.”

Actor-singer Jason Gould is the son of Hollywood royalty — Barbra Streisand and Elliott Gould. Though he knew he was gay by age 8, Gould was not publicly out until he was outed by tabloids in the early ’90s. After learning the news, Streisand tried to educate herself about homosexuality and even considered producing Larry Kramer’s acclaimed gay play, A Normal Heart. Mother and son recorded a duet of Irving Berlin’s “How Deep Is the Ocean” for Streisand’s 2014 duets album.

In 2016, singer and songwriter Miley Cyrus told Variety, “My whole life, I didn’t understand my own gender and my own sexuality. I always hated the word ‘bisexual,’ because that’s even putting me in a box. I don’t ever think about someone being a boy or someone being a girl …”

Miley further explained, “I think the LGBTQ alphabet could continue forever. But there’s a ‘P’ that should happen, for ‘pansexual.’ Once I understood my gender more, which was unassigned, then I understood my sexuality more. I was like, ‘Oh — that’s why I don’t feel straight and I don’t feel gay. It’s because I’m not.’”

R. Kelly

He explained that though born female, he’d identified as male since age 6 or 7.
