Dwyane Wade shared some insights about his personal life. In his recent appearance at the Rachel Nichols’ Showtime series Headliners, the NBA opened up about the reason for moving out of Florida with his family. Wade revealed the reason for leaving the place is the restrictive laws targeting the LGBTQ+ community including his 15-year-old transgender daughter, Zaya is a transgender. 

Dwyane Wade said his family would not be accepted or feel comfortable there

The three-time NBA champion said of the reason, “That’s another reason why I don’t live in that state. A lot of people don’t know that. I have to make decisions for my family, not just personal, individual decisions. Obviously, the taxes is great. Having Wade County is great. But my family would not be accepted or feel comfortable there. And so that’s one of the reasons why I don’t live there.”

On August 22, he filed a petition on behalf of her daughter against the laws blocking trans athletes from competing in school sports and denying their medical facilities. At the court, Wade said after Zaya’s mother faced an objection, “Zaya should not be forced to put her life on hold while she waits for Siohvaughn [Funches-Wade] to acknowledge and accept her truth.”

In February, finally, a Los Angeles judge granted the petition. Wade and his now-wife Gabrielle Union said of their victory, “Last night, she was so happy and we were just like [sings], ‘Say my name, say my name,’ ’cause to some people it just feels like paperwork but to her, it’s her truth and it’s her reality and we support that,” Union said. “Being in her orbit, you wanna catch up, you wanna keep up.”

Wade and Union have a 4-year-old daughter, Kaavia James. And Wade has a 21-year-old son, Zaire, Zaya, and an 8-year-old son, Xavier from a previous relationship.
