On Thursday, Dwyane Wade's daughter, Zaya Wade, 15, and her stepmother, Gabrielle Union, 50, attended the GLAAD Awards, and both looked stunning! Featuring multiple pockets on the front and mini shorts, the openly transgender model wore a chic all-black mini dress for the night on the town. 

As part of the look, the brunette beauty wore the white sandals she wore for her Dazed magazine cover on March 15 and a white mini purse in a matching color scheme. She wore a multicolored strapless gown with a hood above her head, making her a style icon that night.

Her husband, 41, was also a fan of the outfit after she posted a video on Instagram showing off it in a sexy elevator. He added a few fire emojis in the comments section, too. Celebrities such as Christina Aguilera, 42, Sarah Michelle Geller, DJ Diplo, singer G Flip and her girlfriend Chrishell Stause attended the event.

As Xtina wore a plunging black sequined gown and SMG wore a silver sequined gown, she made an impression. In addition to her burgundy corset dress, the Selling Sunset star wore cropped white vests and slacks for a revealing look. A brown suit and white button-up shirt complemented Diplo's dapper style on the red carpet.

Support is most important to her

She revealed two weeks ago how she felt most supported around her family when she appeared on Dazed's cover. In response to a question about what makes her feel empowered, Zaya praised her family. "When my family surrounds me," she gushed. The support system they've provided me has been immense. Whenever I'm around them, I feel strongest.

A few people may be aware that Dwayne and Siovaughn Funches-Wade's daughter came out as transgender in 2020, and her father has supported her publicly since then. Following her father's petition for her to change her name and gender, the 15-year-old could legally change her name and gender. Although her mother objected to her changing her name legally, Zaya Malachi Airamis Wade is now legally referred to as Zaya Malachi Airamis Wade.

The interviewer explained this later

Siovaughn and Zaya's dad was previously married between 2002 and 2010. As of 2016, Zaya and her brother, Zaire Wade, 21, have been placed under the care of the former NBA star. She explained later in the interview that she had been experiencing many changes recently, both with her and her family. The last couple of years has seen so many changes, not just with me but also with the world.

Siovaughn and Zaya's dad divorced in 2010. Zaya explained to me in 2016 how she has been experiencing "big changes" in recent years. It was reported that the former NBA star was granted custody of his two children in 2016. Her family and herself have undergone many significant changes over the past few years. My family and I are honored to continue and advance education and appreciation for the entire LBGTQ+ community as we grow together.
