Her stepmother, Gabrielle Union, showed her support by commenting a bunch of heart emojis. Last year, Dwyane made an appearance on The Ellen Show and revealed his daughter's truth. Zaya was born a male, Zion, but at 12-years-old, came out as transgender. During the show, the former NBA star said he showers his child with love and will refer to her as Zaya as she asked. Zaya received support from her family and superstars like Cardi B. People like B2K's J-Boog and Boosie had issues about it and voiced their opinion publicly. J-Boog called Zaya's interview with Michelle Obama "demonic," and Boosie was against a 12-year-old being a transgender person.https://www.instagram.com/p/CMBCc1yJB0a/In March, Dwyane "thanked" Boosie and J-Boog for their negative comments because it promoted essential conversations that needed to happen. He said, "So, Boosie, all the people who got something to say, J-Boog, who just came out recently… all the people who got something to say about my kids, I thank you because you're allowing the conversation to keep going forward because you know what? You might not have the answer today, I don't have all the answers, but we're growing from all these conversations." He continued to show them appreciation,"So I thank everybody for even hating and starting those conversations because those conversations are starting other conversations that we need to have. And that's happening out there." Take a look:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vie52SloEv0
