Latest Cool Dad Achievement: LGBTQ rights activism
Dwyane Wade, 13 time NBA All-Star, ended his 16-year career with the Miami Heat in 2019 and stepped into a new public role as an activist. It suits him. Wade has been supportive of his transgender daughter Zaya, tackling prejudice with the self-assured vibe of a man profoundly please with how things have turned out. And why shouldn’t he be? He and his wife Gabrielle Union have a beautiful and mixed family that now includes Kaavia, who was born via surrogate. They are role models and behave like they know it because they do. There’s a lot to be said for that.
