Dwyane Wade’s daughter, Zaya, who recently came out as transgender, made her red carpet debut at the sixth annual Truth Awards in Los Angeles this weekend.
The 12-year-old was joined by her dad and stepmom, Gabrielle Union.
Taking to Instagram today, the retired basketball star, 38, shared a few photos from the evening and expressed how proud he is of Zaya. “Everyone allow her to re-introduce herself, her name is Zaya Wade!
Last night was Zaya’s first red carpet and we couldn’t have been prouder of how she handled the questions that were asked of her. She has emerged as one of the young faces and voices for the LGBTQ+ community.”
Gabrielle Union also had a strong statement for those who want to pass judgment.
