Set It Off: Boosie Blasted Over Terribly Transphobic Comments About Dwyane Wade’s Daughter Zaya—Gabrielle Union Responds

- By Bossip Staff

D. Wade told Robin Roberts that Zaya, who was born a boy named Zion, told him about her gender identity when she was 3-years-old.

“Zaya started doing more research. She was the one that sat down with us as a family and said, ‘Hey I don’t think I’m gay.’ And she went down the list and said this is how I identify myself — I identify myself as a young lady. I think I’m a straight trans, because I like boys,'” he explained. “It was a process for us to sit down with our daughter and find out who she is and what she likes and not put something on her — we decided to listen to her and she’s leading us on this journey.”

He continued, “My daughter was my first interaction when it comes to having to deal with this conversation. Hopefully I’m dealing with it the right way — inside our home we see the smile on my daughter’s face, we see the confidence that she’s able to walk around and be herself and that’s when you know you’re doing right.”
