Zaya Wade Gives Her First Interview Since Coming Out As Transgender; ‘It Feels Great’

Zaya Wade has broken her silence weeks after her father revealed to the world that she had come out to their family as transgender.

During an interview with Where is the Buzz TV at the Truth Awards on Sunday, the 12-year-old alongside parents Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union, said “it feels great” when asked how it felt to be an inspiration to others.

“I feel like there was always something that was like I was meant to do, but I was never able to find it… I eventually just stopped looking for it, and I think I found it,” she said.

Zaya also said that it’s important for all people to “experience life to the fullest.”

“I think that really includes knowing who you are truly and being able to show other people who you are. And that’s just what it’s all about,” She added eloquently.

The Truth Awards honors Black men and women in the LGBTQ community and is put on by the Better Brothers organization of Los Angeles. Wade said that he wanted to come and show his support for the LGBTQ community, which, in turn, helps them to learn more about Zaya and others just like her.

“We do not have all the answers, but us speaking out and so many others speaking out, it allows for others to be educated, it allows the narrative to change. The more we speak on things, the more we talk about things, so that’s all we’re doing. As we’re becoming educated, we’re trying to educate. So that’s a part of us being allies.”
