D.Wade Opens Up About Raising Queer Child

He credits Gabrielle Union with helping him see the light.

If you remember Wade received flack over a thanksgiving picture featuring his 12 year old son Zion.

On a recent episode of Showtime's "All The Smoke" he was asked point blank on how he deals with having a gay son

Catch the exchange below:

"I had to look myself in the mirror when my son at the time was 3 years old and me and my wife started having conversations about us noticing that he wasn't on the boy vibe that Zaire [Wade's other son] was on," Wade said.

"And, I had to look myself in the mirror and say, 'What if your son come home and tell you he's gay? What are you going to do? How are you going to be? How are you going to act? It ain't about him. He knows who he is. It's about you. Who are you?'"

Wade says that he grew up "ignorant" on the subject of LGBT equality and his wife Gabrielle Union is the one that opened his eyes.
