Dwyane Wade's eldest son Zaire throws his support behind transgender sister Zaya

Union - who is married to Zaya's father Dwyane Wade - introduced her stepdaughter on social media with a video of her discussing being true to herself.

One day after former National Basketball Association star Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union opened up about their 12-year-old's gender identity, Wade's older child, Zaire, shared a heartfelt message to his sister.

Wade's 12-year-old son, Zion Malachi Airamis Wade, now wants to be called Zaya, the player told TV host Ellen DeGeneres this week. I think going forth, I'm ready to live my truth. I want to be referenced as she and her.

Union, who Wade credited with reaching out to all of the family's resources, tweeted to thank those who "provided resources, love & encouragement", after Zaya came home to announce that she'd be using the pronouns she and her going forward.

Wade described that moment. "Right now it's through us, because she's 12 years old, but eventually it will be through her".

He continued, "We take our roles and our responsibility as parents very seriously".

Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union and their children Zaya, 12 and Kaavia James, one.

The normalization of transgenderism is being pushed from the top down, from the elites to the rest of us, and we do not yet know if the inevitable backlash that will accompany the brutal consequences of this social experiment will be sufficient to roll back the tide of gender insanity that is seeping rapidly through our institutions.

The short video features Zaya sharing her thoughts on living her best life.

"Meet Zaya. She's compassionate, loving, whip smart and we are so proud of her", Gabrielle wrote.

"Yeah, I know that it can get tough, definitely, but I think you push through and be the best you", Zaya replied. Even through hard times you gotta push through. It's Ok to listen to, love and respect your children exactly as they are. "When you look in the mirror and say "hi" to yourself". "And we're just trying to figure out as much information as we can to make sure that we give our child the opportunity to be her best self". Love and light good people.

As Dwyane disclosed on Ellen, when Zaya came out as transgender, Gabrielle took it upon herself to reach out to the cast of Pose - an LGBTQ+ themed FX series examining the history of trans and gay people, especially people of color, in 1980s New York City - in order to help educate herself and her husband on how to be a better ally.
