Everyone can take lessons in parenting from Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union.— Frederick Joseph (@FredTJoseph) February 11, 2020
Wade is an especially important figure for us straight men to look to.
Congrats to Zaya on her decision and kudos to the family for demonstrating real love.
- Dwayne Wade went on Ellen and said, "First of all, me and my wife Gabrielle, we are proud parents of a child in the LGBTQ+ community and we are proud allies as well."
- "Once Zaya, our 12-year-old, came home... first, Zion. I don’t know if everyone knows, originally named Zion. Zion, born as a boy, came home and said, ‘Hey, so I want to talk to you guys. I think going forward, I’m ready to live my truth. And I want to be referenced as she and her. I’d love for you guys to call me Zaya’."
- "When our child comes home with a question, when our child comes home with an issue, when our child comes home 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."
