Gabrielle Union and her 13-year-old stepdaughter, Zaya Wade, performed the viral 'no hands' TikTok dance to DJ Yames's song for Union's 1.9 million followers on the app.

Union and Zaya were entirely in sync as they followed along with the trend's moves. Union was decked in a light blue two-piece tracksuit with a cropped top, while Zaya sported a casual yellow tee and black track pants.

Both Union and her daughter vibed to the song and had a blast dancing together. Towards the end of the video clip, Zaya stops and walks out of the frame, leaving her stepmother to continue rocking out solo.

The video racked up almost 500 thousand reactions and over 10 thousand comments. Union has often posted about her blended family, and they recently celebrated Zaya's birthday. In a heartfelt post, Union said:

Zaya celebrated turning 13 in May 2020, and both Union and Wade spoke about how proud they were of their daughter, especially since she had recently come out as a transgender, straight girl.

Zaya's parents have been vocal about their allyship with the LGBTQ community and are willing to do as much research as need be to help them understand their daughter's identity.

Zaya felt betrayed by a previous birthday picture of her that was dissected and analyzed on internet forums.

Wade, Union, and Zaya attended The Truth Awards in March 2020, which is committed to recognizing the achievements of members of the Black LGBTQ+ community.

The family was present to support Zaya's godfathers, Jason Bolden and Adair Curtis, who were given the Business Leadership Award. Wade proudly posted on Instagram about how Zaya handled the questions at the event, saying:

"She has emerged as one of the young faces and voices for the LGBTQ+ community."

Zaya felt betrayed by a previous birthday picture of her dissected and analyzed on internet forums of her standing by her cake. She had come out a few times as trans, including to her third-grade teacher.

Since then, Union has emphasized that her daughter's peace is non-negotiable and that she and her husband have to be willing and open to listening and understanding.

Even Zaire, Zaya's older brother, has been an incredible comfort to his sister since she announced that she was transgender and wanted to use different pronouns. Zaire mentioned that he had always wanted a baby brother.

However, he maintained that there was no love lost between them and that Zaya had been his best friend for 12 years. Union also contacted the cast of the FX show "Pose" to learn more about the LGBTQ community.
