Gabrielle Explained Why It’s Important For Her & Husband To “Love Out Loud” Their Trans Daughter, Zaya

Gabrielle union shares her parenting thing.

In an exclusive interview, the Cheaper by the Dozen star opened up to BuzzFeed about why she and Dwyane Wade love all of their kids “out loud” .

and shared advice for parents who may be struggling to accept their LGBTQ children.

In 2019, Dwyane’s then–12-year-old daughter Zaya came out as transgender. Since then, Dwyane and Gabrielle have supported her in many ways, even throwing a Medieval-themed celebration for Zaya’s 13th birthday, which coincided with the start of Pride Month.

“It’s important for us to live and love out loud.

We didn’t exactly understand why [supporting Zaya’s trans identity] was a thing because it’s like, we love all our kids out loud,” she said, addressing the cri’tici’sm she and Dwyane enc’ou’nte’red.

“But it is a thing and a lot of people do need an example,” she continued. “[People] do need that [kind of] representation.”

“As our children show up, it is our job to believe them when they tell us who they are and not impose our dreams, hopes, fears, and desires on them,” Gabrielle said.

“It’s our job to be loving, compassionate, protective guides for our children, but their lives are their lives and we have to respect that,” she said.

“So yeah, we’re gonna post our family, we’re going to live out loud, we’re going to love out loud, and we’re going to speak out loud and lead in however each situation calls for us to be leaders when things are not where they should be,” she said.

The actor also spoke directly to trans kids living in states seeing a rise in anti-trans directives, saying, “There are people just like you that want you to win in life. And by win, I mean to survive and thrive. And we will find a way.”

“Whether that’s in Texas, Florida, Idaho, or all the other states that are basically trying to outlaw your existence.
