The girlfriend of Day 26 member Robert Curry was forced to prove she was born a girl after Internet trolls shamed her on social media.
Day 26 is best known as contestants on Sean Combs' reality TV series Making the Band. Their debut album went No. 1 on the Billboard charts.
Social media trolls routinely harass Portia, who has full lips and beautiful African features.
When Curry posted an Instagram photo of the couple celebrating New Year's, the trolls asked him if he was in a homosexual relationship.
"Omg is that yur [sic] boyfriend are you gay with all do [sic] respect," asked one Instagram user.
In response to the trans-shaming, Portia changed her Twitter profile to prove she was born a girl.
