Gabrielle Union Explains Supporting 11-Year-Old Son At Gay Pride Parade ‘It Feels Normal’

Gabrielle Union is opening up about why she and her “entire household” supported her 11-year-old step son, Zion, earlier this month at Miami’s Gay Pride Parade.

Miami Beach Pride is a weeklong celebration with special events, social mixers, dance events, a VIP gala, an incredible 2-day festival and Parade. The mission of the event is to bring together members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community, their friends, allies, and supporters in celebration of the unique spirit and culture of the LGBTQ community.

The 46-year-old actress, who is married to 37-year-old Dwyane Wade says,

“It feels normal. My mom took me to my first pride at eight years old. We moved to San Francisco, and it’s kind of part of being a global citizen.”

She continued,

“People talk a lot about diversity and inclusion, but they don’t actually mean it. In our household, we mean that, and that’s why the entire household went to pride.”

Gabrielle excitedly took to social media, sharing photos of their pride experience. Gabrielle attended, along with with her stepson, as well as her 5-month-old daughter, Kaavia,and Zion’s 17-year-old brother, Zaire. While Zion’s dad, D.Wade didn’t attend, he shared photos on social media.
