Dwyane Wade recently posted an Instagram story that showed a photo of his wife, Gabrielle Union, and his son and daughter. The caption read “My girls.” Wade’s 11-year-old son Zion has come out as gay and isn’t afraid to not conform to societal norms about boys. Wade and Union have been very supportive of him since coming out. In April, Union was seen with Zion at a gay pride parade.
Social media has had different reactions to Wade’s “My girls” post. Some have supported his son while many have come across as very ignorant. One tweet showed the photo asking Twitter what do they think.
It’s good to see Wade and Union being so supportive of his son no matter his sexual orientation. Social media will sadly continue to be judgmental regarding sexual orientations. Salute to Wade and Union for taking a stand against the hate and supporting family.
