Dwyane Wade believes transgender issues are "issues of life and death" as trans kids are killing themselves because they can't find acceptance.
For that reason, he thanked Boosie Badazz for hating on Wade's trans daughter Zaya.
“So, Boosie, all the people who got something to say, J-Boogie (J-Boog of 2000s R&B group B2K) who just came out recently ... All the people who got something to say about my kids, I thank you because you’re allowing the conversation to keep going forward because you what? You might not have the answer today, I don’t have all the answers, but we’re growing from all these conversations,” Wade said. “So I thank everybody for even hating and starting these conversations because those conversations are starting other conversations that we need to have. And that’s happening out there," Wade said on his podcast.
Last year, Boosie ranted about Wade allowing his son to become his daughter.
"I gotta say something about this. Dwayne Wade, you've gone too f*cking far, dog. That is a male. A 12 year old. At 12, they don't even know what they next meal gonna be. They don't have sh!t figured out yet. He might meet a woman at 16 and fall in love with her. But his d*ck be gone, how you gonna? Bro, you've gone too far, dog. Don't cut his d*ck off, bro. If he gonna be gay, let him be gay. But don't cut his d*ck off, bro. Don't address him a woman, dog. He's 12 years old, he's not up there yet. He hasn't made his final decisions yet. You trippin, dog," Boosie said
