Thousands of people turned out for Miami Beach Pride last Sunday, which included a parade, festival, live entertainment, and appearances by headliners Icona Pop and Tito Puente Jr.
During the festivities, NBA star Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat shared his public support for his 11-year-old son, who was in attendance.
“We support each other with Pride,” 37-year-old Wade wrote in an Instagram post featuring his 11-year-old son, Zion, alongside Wade’s wife, actress Gabrielle Union.
In another post, Wade, who was in Toronto for a game against the Raptors, wrote: “Zion had his on [sic] cheering section today. Wish i was there to see you smile kid!”
He also included a rainbow pride flag emoji.
Zion rode a float during the Pride parade, along with his stepmom, his big brother, Zaire, and younger sister, Kaavia.
Afterwards 17-year-old Zaire also shared some photos from the parade to his Instagram Story, along with the caption, “Love you lil bro no matter what.”
Naturally, this had Twitter feeling all the feels.
Dwayne Wade and Gabby Union supporting young Zion at Miami Pride is so beautiful, I could cry. I can’t imagine having had this type of support as a kid (or even young adult). Amazing example of living in and showing unconditional love ? pic.twitter.com/2cT8Ow6kik
