Gabrielle Union & Dwayne Wade Launch Shirts to Support LGBTQ Equality (& Son Zion)

Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade have partnered with clothing company YnG DnA to sell a limited-edition Pride shirt, donating proceeds to GLSEN. In a post on Instagram, Union and Wade model the shirts alongside three of their five kids: Wade’s sons Zaire and Zion with his first wife, Siohvaughn Funches, as well as nephew, Dahveon, who Wade also raised.

“As a family, we believe inclusion and equality are two essential pillars needed to move towards growth and progressive thinking and action in our society,” Union writes in the post. She also shared that family will be donating $50,000 with YnG DnA, as well as 50% of the proceeds from every shirt sold. Union also teased that a line from the couple’s daughter, Kaavia, might be coming soon. (Onesies, perhaps?)

The shirts have the YnG DnA logo on the front in rainbow, and on the back use the letters in pride to spell “Please Remain Inclusive and Dedicated 2 Equality.” The shirts come in both a men’s and women’s cut and retail for $35 each. The collaboration also won’t come as a surprise to fans of the Wade family. Back in June, both Union and Wade made headlines after supporting their youngest son, Zion, at Miami Pride. While Dwayne Wade couldn’t be there because of work, Union posted to Instagram stories pictures of what she dubbed Zion’s “cheering section.”

When asked about his choice to support his son later, Wade told Variety while it was “Zion’s story to tell,” he added, “I think as a family, we should support each other. That’s our job.” It’s a powerful message of support echoed by Zion’s older brothers. On his own Instagram, Zaire shared a photo of him and Zion in the shirts, ending it with “THE WADES STAND AS ONE!”
