Dwyane Wade’s parenting has been called into question by many after his youngest child publicly came out on Instagram as transgender. Both he and wife Gabrielle Union have been vocal about their acceptance of Zaya Wade and her transition despite her young age, and has been a point of conversation for their fans over the last two years.
The Wades have discussed their relationship with the LGBTQIA community and Zaya has been easing her way into a comfortable place in the spotlight.
Last year, Dwyane sat down with I Am Athlete and spoke about his own struggle with gender identity when he was young. The NBA star said he wore his sisters’ clothing. This clip recently resurfaced, causing the remarks to go viral once again.
“A three years old, like I said, when me and my wife looked at each other, right, and the reason we looked at each other is because of this—you know, as kids, I used to put on heels,” said Wade. “I used to do all those things. I tried to put on whatever my sisters wear, whatever my sisters did, I tried to do those things.”
Black Twitter is having a field day with Dwayne’s comments. They believe the NBA legend is gay. Look:
