Dustin Michael of the popular 2000s R&B group B5, revealed today in an Instagram video that he is currently in a relationship with transgender director D. Smith.
He shares that following the death of transgender star Rasheeda Williams aka Koko Da Doll from his girlfriend’s award-winning documentary “Kokomo City”, he felt compelled to profess his love for her openly in an effort to support her through this difficult time.
“I’m in a very beautiful relationship with someone who makes me very happy…my girlfriend is transgender, her name is D. Smith.”
He continued, “I don’t want to be one of the men benefiting from a trans woman in private and not celebrate her publicly.”
D. Smith responded to his post by reposting the video via her official Instagram, captioning:
"I’m so proud of you. We’ve known each other for almost 10 years now and every moment with you was always validating. So many men only dream of being as brave as you are. Thank you for being the example of a human just loving a human. I’m so grateful for your heart, ambition and spirit! I love you."
