Dwyane Wade came out publicly, and told the world that his 12 year old offspring is transgender. Dwyane Wade now refers to the child as his "daughter" Zaya.

And Zaya's church family consider her to be female as well and had her singing with the church's girls choir yesterday.

Dwyane and Gabby shared a video of their precious moment on Instagram.

Here is the video:

In April 2019, Zaya came out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. The family proudly posted a picture of them all together, and in it Zaya was wearing a crop top and acrylic nails. This immediately sparked attention and criticism from fans and other celebrities online. 

Back in July, Dwyane Wade spoke out against the judgement of his daughter attending Miami Beach Pride. "It’s my job to be their role model, to be their voice in my kids’ lives, to let them know you can conquer the world. So, go and be your amazing self and we’re going to sit back and just love you,” he said. 

The, a few months ago on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Dwyane told the world that his 12-year-old child is transgender. His daughter, who had previously been known as the boy Zion Wade, asked them to call her Zaya Wade, as she was prepared to “live (her) truth.”

Zaya's mother, Siovaughn Wade-Funchess has not yet weighed in on whether she considers Zaya to be a boy or a girl - or whether she approves of the decisions made made by Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union regarding the rearing of her child.
