Wade Family Create Gay Pride T-Shirts


Earlier this year Dwyane Wade's 12-year-old son Zion participated in his first gay pride parade [click here if you missed that].

Now the Wade family has created a limited edition gay pride t-shirt to help promote inclusivity ...

This week Gabrielle Union announced the Wade family would be donating $50,000.00 and 50% of t-shirt sales to THE GLSEN organization an advocate for safe schools for children of all gender identities.

A few more photos and Zion will be wearing a dress and heels. And trans women are not women. Too early for this.

I totally agree @10:45a.

These people are obsessed with sexuality. Ain't no way I would encourage this child in this way. He should be focusing on education, creativity, learning how to do things,hobbies, sports, understanding spirituality etc. In no way shape or form is this healthy. I think these trans people have compulsive disorders that are not met with common sense. "Mommy I want to be a boy" "Daughter boys have penises you have a vagina. You can dress up like one all you want, but when they need to draft for the front lines of war will you be ready?"

I'm checking out those boots he's wearing on his feet. But anyway.

Be an individual all you want but why force it on everyone else to accept it? That's what I have a problem with. People swear they're so open-minded but close minded when you don't agree with what they like or what they have to say. Hypocrites I tell you.

Beautiful family, my 11 year old daughter Hathor came out to me she was gay. Does not matter to me I love her all the same and will support her every step of the way. I have no shade to throw on the Wades, this is a beautiful picture of black love. I love to see black families loving up on each other gwaan tru!!!

Trans women are trans-women - what's wrong with that?! They are not women. That really annoys me and I am very open minded, have no prejudices.

And that's why Dave Chapelle's new stand up is genius.
I'm black but I feel Chinese. So I am Chinese.

This is the best news I've heard today. Way to go, Gabrielle and Dwayne. Be there for your children and for what you think (know) is right and fuck what anyone else says.

I'm here for this.

^^^ Right? Rachel Dolezar was ridiculed and slammed for claiming to be something that she "felt" that she was *transracial* but we're supposed to be "opened minded" when it comes to other trans and how they feel, yet are labeled narrow minded if we don't? Bye hypocritical Felicia!

Too much!

Dwyane Wade is bisexual and Union is a lesbian. She wears the pants in that relationship and loves the fact that Dwayne has a submissive side. They are not pushing this gay thing only for the son but because of their lifestyle.

It amazes me that blacks who want to be included and accepted are so hell bent on excluding and shaming anyone that they don't agree with. Its truly sad.

No one is forcing their agenda or lifestyle a on anyone. You don't have to respond to the blog post. You can just move on if it bothers you so much. In responding, you are including yourself to an event that no one invited you to.

@12:56 black people are losing because we are continually letting society demean and weaken what should be the backbone of our households: the black man.

how is this different from a child telling a parent he wants to eat candy and pancakes for every meal? would you let him do that? because what we're looking at is way worse than a few cavities

Ok didn't realize you were'nt cosigning this bullshyt. I thought you was tripping like this one above you that swears nobody's forcing an agenda or lifestyle as if Dwade and Gabby parading there gay son on the Gram and making money off him selling tshirts aint an agenda. Dafuk?

@ 1pm - it effects me because I am a woman and the trans are saying they are women. I mean, there is a difference, correct? I don't want a trans telling me they're male, when they are trans-male. So YES it's an issue that I want to be very clear about. But I don't have any problems with them other than being labeled.

@1:00pm I agree. I don't care who sleeps with who anymore. Black folks are going to do what they want to anyway. I'm happy the kid has a family who supports him, instead of being unhappy as a DL person.

1:15 is making sense.

My point is that just because you don't accept this mess doesn't mean that you can't love your child or are narrow minded. I am going to love my sons regardless but until they are of age, graduated and moved out; they will not be walking around my house in tutus and heels. Plus there will be things that I won't accept but I'm going to still love you. It irked me that Will and Jada allowed their kids to be free thinkers, didn't enforce education, allowed them to pick their consequence of punishment etc.... but hey it's their kids and their beliefs.

Everyone doesn't feel like me and in that aspect, it's nice of them to donate. The only thing that has me side eyeing them is that they are making money off of this.

I wouldn't say that in this case they are forcing an agenda on anyone but I will say, if you put it out there to the world then be prepared to hear/read comments that don't agree with you.

@12:23, you make a great point. The difference is the Dozeal chick was ostracized for pretending to be Black while some people see this young man's coming out as empowering for others to do the same. He's not trying to fool anybody and some feel that's to be applauded.

While I don't have a problem with him being who he is (do you Zion!), and I don't advocate bullying, I take issue with his sexual preferences being capitalized off of. They could have celebrated this young man coming out privately but it's like they're trying to make an 11 y.o. Black Boy the new face of the gay or transgender movement. That troubles me. Let him be a kid. Being an adolescent is hard enough. Now he has to grapple with his sexuality on a public platform. Their kid, their life, their choice. They can do whatever they want. But since THEY are public figures who intentionally put it out there for public consumption, I can have an opinion about it.

It's also funny to me how DWade doesn't celebrate his other two sons' sexuality or masculinity in the same way he's celebrating Zion. He's a Black man raising three Black boys yet only highlights the son who wants to be something other than a boy. Why no Tshirts about just being a Powerful Young Black Man? Why not give equal airtime to all three if being inclusive is the goal?

He's not campaigning about the importance of his other two sons becoming solid young men who treat Black (or all) women and each other with respect and dignity, or grow up to be well adjusted and productive. It's all about accepting Zion's homosexual preferences. And that's what's troubling to me is how excited they are to do so.

The Black culture doesn't have enough positive public influences showing young Black (heterosexual) males who are confident in their masculinity without being portrayed as drug dealers, druggies, indiscriminant baby-makers, wife beaters, thugs, pimps, etc. Yet this young Black boy is put on pedestals when he comes out as gay or transgender. To me that spells an agenda and I don't care what anybody says about that.

I see no problem in teaching my kids about gay love. Love is love. However, I'm not going to force them to be gay; just like I wouldn't force them to be straight. And I would teach them that heterosexual sex is natural for procreation but it doesn't mean homosexual sex is evil. And I'm bisexual and say this. I would tell my children that I would love them regardless of their orientation. But Gabrielle and D Wade are a weird and freaky ass couple and they are obsessed with sex. I wouldn't be surprised if they discuss how hot their sex is over breakfast with the kids. They are on some Will & Jada bullshit!

Gabby has DWades balls in her pocket.

Those children have a biological mother. I wonder if she has any say so in how they are raising she / he / them? This is def an agenda. Tsk, tsk tsk...Gabby is a cold-blooded one.

Pusspusd said...

Gabby and Wade wanna talk about inclusion if all people, I will buy that when Gabby start including The break baby in family photos and vacation. The nerves of them Gabby is a vindictive evil azz heffa, you took the man frm his wife, he cheated on u and to spite him u went on tv telling the world he likes wen u play with his booty.
Now u out here parading this woman sons that u stole cuz u can't have kids, to further your agenda and career.

This after that woman lost her husband and kids, that woman is a church going woman so I can't see her been ok with this, Gabby u are evil and I think u intent to drive Wade ex wife out of her mind via her kids..

Right in the public eyes u are shameless, clutching that baby lime u gave birth, yourself, u stole have saved that pictures for family and close friends but you steady trying to rewrite history to fit how you want to be percieved and looked at

Anonymous said...

^^^I don't think that she did it to spite the ex wife but I do see this as being her idea of showing the world how "great, accepting and tolerant" that she is while collecting money and support from all races.

I personally feel that she knows his true sexuality and is okay with using a strap on at times. Of course he's going to support his son for being able to come out because he isn't able to.

@1:46 Yeah, you don't care who's sleeping with who anymore until you find out that your man is cheating on you with another man. I'll bet you'll care then.

"This after that woman lost her husband and kids, that woman is a church going woman so I can't see her been ok with this". Not a huge fan of Gabby's, but on this topic, she's spot on! Love and support your family and pay dust to idiots struggling with their own sexuality. If that last line stung, it's YOU.

Lol if anyone is struggling with their own sexuality it'd be the confused people. Let that sink in!
