AceShowbiz - Zaya Wayde continues to embrace her new self after coming out as transgender. Dwyane Wade's daughter has recently taken to her Instagram account to debut her new look as she posted a video of her posing on the balcony.
In the video posted on the photo-sharing site, Zaya could be seen leaning her body towards the reeling with her arms wide open. Looking away from the camera, she stared into the distance to give a better look at her new long braids. In the photo itself, Zaya wore a black T-shirt and a single cloth covering the lower part of her body.
Keeping the caption simple, Zaya wrote, "800," before adding, "My [red heart emoji]."
Zaya came out as transgender earlier this year and made her first red carpet appearance after her coming out at the Truth Awards in March along with her father and stepmother Gabrielle Union. Her coming out sparked controversy and criticism as people argued that Zaya, at 12 years old, is too young to make the decision.
Among those critics was Boosie Badazz a.k.a. Lil Boosie, who said, "At 11 or 12 I don't know if I'm going shopping at Dillard's or Footlocker. Ya heard? I don't know if I'm going to college or staying. Big decisions I can't make yet."
Dwyane himself has hit back at the haters and defended his decision to let Zaya do what she wants. "As parents, it's our job to sit back and figure out and find the information that we can. And we've sat down together as a family. We've reached out to as many people as we can. We've researched as many things as we can to try to help not only our family but other people in this journey and along the way," he said.
