Published: Thursday 20th Jun 2019 by David

Dwayne Wade has revealed why he chose to support his son’s decision to visit a Pride event despite criticism he faced from some of his fans.


Read below…

Wade had this to say to ‘Variety’ when he was quizzed on Zion’s decision to hit the party.

I don’t really talk about it much because it’s Zion’s story to tell.I think as a family, we should support each other. That’s our job. And my job as a father is to facilitate their lives and to support them and be behind them in whatever they want to do.I think people expect you to parent each kids the same. They are all different, and I have to get to know them and where they are. I have to say to most parents, get to know your kids. Don’t put your wants and needs on them.

 

Watch below…

He added…

I’m very uneasy about accolades that come from supporting my kids or the negativity that comes from it. I’m doing what every parent has to do. Once you bring kids into this world, you become unselfish. It’s my job to be their role model, to be their voice in my kids’ lives, to let them know you can conquer the world. So, go and be your amazing self and we’re going to sit back and just love you.

Your thoughts?

    He is very young. However, it’s beautiful Wade supporting and loving his son unconditionally. Man made religion convince lost souls to abandon their own child due to sexuality. Promote love not hate. Live and let live!

    “And my job as a father is to facilitate their lives and to support them and be behind them in whatever they want to do.” Raising a child isn’t about supporting everything that makes the child happy. Love that child enough to steer him/her in what you believe is the right direction, and if that child takes a different path, educate that child about the potential consequences (good and bad) and implications of what he/she desires to do. An 11-year-old child who is not old enough to fully grasp what it is to live his life as a homosexual male is not old enough to be at a pride parade. What is he being exposed to or NOT being exposed to that he’s making a determination about his sexuality? He probably hasn’t even been taught yet what it means to live his life being black in America. Start there.

        YAll both sound STUPID….. Stop believing its a choice and maybe you wont come off as IGNORANT!!! No one teaches their kids to lie… so why does everyone think parents can teach they kids STRAIGHT. Stop trying to change who a person is and get to the know the person THEY ARE!!! No one tried to change young kids from living heterosexual lives… stop being bias to things you don’t understaND

    Because he loves his son and would rather love him ALIVE than have him hate himself and commit suicide.
    IF YOU ARE HOMOPHOBIC, WHAT WILL YOU SAY WHEN YOUR GAY CHILD KILLS THEMSELF?
    Young black gay kids are killing themselves and it is UNACCEPTABLE.
    Love is patient.
    Love is kind.
    Love does not envy.
    Love does not boast.
    Love is not proud.
    Love is not rude.
    Love is not self-seeking.
    Love is not easily angered.
    Love keeps no records of wrong.
    Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth.
    EVIL is pretending to be straight spreading diseases.
    I rejoice in everyone who can live in truth.

    As far as him being too young to know, you can look at my childhood photos and see that I had effeminate mannerisms in how I posed. And YES, I grew up in a 2 parent home. I contemplated suicide because I felt like I was an abomination to my super religious parents. They’ve told me they wished I hadn’t been born.

    Is that why you have children? To make them wish they were dead? Nevermind my degrees, industry advancements and pride I’ve brought to my family.
