I have a daughter that transitioned into a son. My daughter Amai is now Kai.

He continued:

I talk about the transition — not their transition, but my transition — as a parent going from ignorance and denial to complete, unconditional love and acceptance. And I think there’s a lot of parents out there that need to have that message. And I know I’m dealing with it. It was a very painful situation for me, but man, it’s one of the best, funniest hours I probably could ever imagine.

He added:

They know I love them. They see me trying, and I’m happy.

Marlon Wayans gave the public the first glimpse that his child was a member of the LBGTQ+ community in 2019 when he celebrated Kai on Pride Month across his social media handles.

He wrote:

Happy pride to my pride and joy. I wouldn’t change one effing thing about you. Love you to the moon around the sun through the galaxies and back again.
