Dwyane Wade’s 11-year-old son Zion Wade officially came out as homosexual during Miami’s Gay Pride celebration over the weekend.
Wade posted photos on Instagram Story of his wife Gabrielle Union and his sons, Zion and Zaire, 17, participating in Gay Pride. “We support each other with Pride!” he wrote in the caption of one image that shows Gabrielle embracing Zion.
Wade, 37, who is playing his final season in the NBA, appears to be a devoted and loving father to his four children. As a toddler, Zion was raised mainly in Chicago by his ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches, while Wade lived and played ball in Miami.
When he realized Funches may have emotional or mental problems that prevented her from bonding with his two sons, he filed for sole custody of his boys.
But by then, it was too late for little Zion, who began to show feminine tendencies at a young age.
Due to the demands of their high-profile careers, celebrities and professional athletes such as Wade have a higher incidence of homosexual children than society at large.
Despite the research that proves the child-parent bonding link, this is a difficult concept for parents to grasp because liberals promote the ideology that homosexuals are “born that way”.
The Atlanta chapter of PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians And Gays) published a guide to help parents who believe they are raising a gay child.
The organization says gay children who are not accepted by their parents usually have a higher risk of depression, suicide, drug use or engage in high risk unsafe sex.
