#DwyaneWade reveals his 12-yr old child wants to go by ‘Zaya’ now! [Vid]

Dwyane Wade has been very transparent about parenting a young child that identifies as LGBTQ…now he revealed to Ellen that his 12-year old will now go by ‘Zaya’ as they come into their identity.

“First of all me and my wife, Gabrielle Union, we are proud parents of a child in the LGBTQ+ community and we’re proud allies as well,” Wade said in a new interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The spot was to promote a new ESPN documentary based on the basketball player, called D Wade: Life Unexpected.

“We take our roles and responsibilities as parents very seriously. So, 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, and that doesn’t change now that sexuality [and gender] is involved.”

In December, Wade did an interview where he referred to the 12-year-old with she/her pronouns. Now, Wade has revealed that one day the child came home and sat Wade and Union down and asked not only to be referred to with those pronouns, but to also be called Zaya, as she comes into her identity.[Out Mag]

Wade will obviously receive backlash for his stance and parenting…but at the end of the day..it is HIS CHILD..SO….PROPS to him for being a good parent and understanding the needs of his child!
