Dwayne Wade has shown several times that he is in full support of his daughter Zaya’s journey to the best girl that she can be. It was earlier this year when the former Miami Heat star took to the Ellen Degeneres Show to announce that Zion would be going by Zaya as she embarks on her new journey.
“Me and my wife, Gabrielle Union, we are proud. When I say proud, we are proud parents of a child in the LGBTQ+ community, and we’re proud allies as well. We take our roles and our responsibilities as parents very seriously. So when our child comes home with a question, when our child comes with an issue, when our child comes with anything, it’s our job as parents to listen to that, to give them the best information that we can, the best feedback that we can. That doesn’t change because sexuality is now involved in it.”
Dwayne Wade took to his social media to represent his support for the LGBTQ+ community by rocking a multicolored graphic tee with “PRIDE” on it.
Gay pride or LGBT pride is the promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people as a social group. Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements! #WeSupportEachOtherWithPride
