Dwyane Wade is showing his daughter love in a major way.
Last year, Dwyane made an appearance on The Ellen Show and revealed Zaya’s “truth.” She was born a male, Zion, but at 12-years-old, she came out as transgender. Dwyane said he showers his child with love and will refer to her as Zaya as she asked.
Zaya received support from her family and superstars like Cardi B. People like B2K’s J-Boog and Boosie had issues about it and voiced their opinion publicly. J-Boog called Zaya’s interview with Michelle Obama “demonic” and Booise was against a 12-year-old being transgender.
Dwyane addressed the haters on an episode of I Am Athlete. Dwyane spoke on Boosie and said, “At the end of the day, what I’m dealing with people, I’m dealing with life and death. It’s people in the transgender community that are getting killed. It’s kids that are murdering themselves that are hanging themselves; they’re killing themselves because of something as simple as acceptance.”
Later in the conversation, Dwyane said, “So I thank everybody for even hating and starting those conversations because those conversations are starting other conversations that we need to have. And that’s happening out there.”
