  • You know when a man loves his woman or a woman loves her man, s/he never stops talking about him/her, even when the subject is not necessarily about him/her. Dwayne truly loves his wife

  • To see a black family support and love and understand and listen to her is beautiful and many black families need to take note and support their kids and not create a stigma around important social issues and need to watch how they talk about social issues around their kids because they never know what their children are going through

  • I don’t think I could support my child for being gay at that age smh I guess I don’t need to be having children anytime soon if I feel this way

  • This is so beautiful. Let me tell y'all a lot of black people have a lot of homophobia and transphobia because we've already been fighting so hard for our humanity in terms of race, so to add queerness on top of that seems impossible. But we must understand we don't have to be just like our oppressors to be successful. Thank you, Dwayne. You're doing so much good.

  • Wade youre an idiot this child is far too young to decide something like this. Most children who consider themselves trans at a young age (as low as 5-20 percent) just wind up being discovering that they were just gay. However, its typically not until AFTER "supportive" parents pay for them to drastically alter their bodies and take hormones and other irreversible changes that they realize that doing this does not actually make them happy. I know no one wants to condemn a father being supportive of your child but for the love of god let him grow into an adult before this child alters their body.

  • This is honestly so refreshing to see. Sexuality is such a taboo subject in the black community (I know from first hand experience). Being gay is one thing, but to come out as trans is considered the worst of the worst. So to see a prominent black male figure publicly expressing his unconditional acceptance of his daughter and solidarity to the LGBTQ+ is so amazing to see. Hopefully he has inspired others to lead by his example🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽xx

  • if you will not love and support your child unconditionally..... DO NOT HAVE CHILDREN

  • I love the support that they show for Zaya. I hope in the future, they will let Zaya tell her own story. This interview is nothing new because they've been posting and commenting every step of the way. I want to hear from Zaya, with the parents being supportive in the background. For all of the people saying everyone should mind their own business, it's impossible when your parents tell the world. Everybody can't have everything. Let Zaya get ahead of her own story and let her control the narrative.
