Gabrielle Union & Dwyane Wade Praise Daughter Zaya During GLAAD Media Awards Appearance

Gabrielle Union and husband Dwyane Wade are celebrating daughter Zaya Wade during their appearance at the 2020 GLAAD Media Awards.

In a recorded video message, the celebrity couple presented the award for Outstanding Drama Series, which went to Pose, but took a moment ahead of the reveal to praise Zaya for teaching them to be allies.

“We stand as allies with the LGBTQ+ community as proud parents of a transgender child,” Dwyane shared. “Our daughter Zaya is leading us in our journey, and we’re doing all we can to give every one of our kids the ability to live their truth.”

He added, “I didn’t always understand how to do that – but I thank Zaya for teaching me, and GLAAD for elevating the images and messages that accelerate acceptance in every family.”

Gabrielle continued, “That mission means even more to us now as we raise all of our Black children. Black lives matter, and Black trans lives matter. We are calling on all of our racial justice warriors out there to open your hearts and your mind to the LGBTQ+ community, so that we can work together and empower each other and save lives.”

Earlier this summer, Gabrielle and Dwyane celebrated Zaya‘s birthday with this fun theme!
