The post featured her wearing a short brown skirt with a fitting orange top that exposed her navel. Her blue-dyed hair stood out in the picture as she lounged on the lawn. In the comments section of the post, someone agreed with Zaya's view saying:

"She makes a good point ??."

Although the post's comments section was later disabled, the picture she shared with her over 234,000 followers garnered many likes and some comments.

In February, during the "Ellen DeGeneres Show," Zaya's dad, Wade, revealed to DeGeneres that Zaya, who was born Zion, a boy, had come back one day and informed them that she was ready to live her truth and would prefer to be referred to as "she and her."

Sometime in November, Tyson defended Zaya from a transphobic statement made by rapper Boosie Badazz.

At the time of the revelation, Wade explained that he and his wife of six years, Gabrielle Union had to do a lot of reading and research, which enabled them to come to terms with the decision. For them, supporting Zaya was the most important thing.

Since then, Zaya, Wade, and Union have been lending their voices to the pride community, and earlier in the year, Zaya was selected as part of TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2020.

The family's embrace and wholesome support of Zaya's truth have made them a voice to be reckoned with. Despite the backlash from some members of society, they have stood solidly behind Zaya's decision.

Interestingly, one person that has openly defended the Wades has been international boxing champion, Mike Tyson. Sometime in November, Tyson defended Zaya from a transphobic statement made by rapper Boosie Badazz.

For Zaya, who celebrated her 13th birthday on May 29 in modern medieval kingdom style, at the time she opened up to her parents, expressed that she felt it was better to live one's truth than to pretend and be unhappy.

Wade and Union and their children's relationship are inspiring to watch as the parents have often expressed that their children encourage them. It was unique what lessons they have learned from them even as adults.
