Zaya Wade Celebrated Her 13th Birthday And Pride Month With A Medieval-Themed Party, And It Looked Like A Lot Of Fun

Serve, Your Majesty.

Earlier this month, Zaya Wade celebrated her 13th birthday with a medieval-themed birthday bash.

The inspiring teen, who has received an outpouring of support from her famous parents, Dwyane Wade and stepmom Gabrielle Union, since coming out as transgender, posted a series of photos from the event on Instagram:

She also noted that the major milestone of becoming a teenager coincided with the start of Pride Month, writing, "Stronger Together ✊🏾 #happypride🌈".

Yep, I'm crying.

Earlier this year, Zaya gave her first interview while making her red carpet debut, and spoke about becoming an LGBTQ activist and encouraging others to live in their truth:

"It feels great. I feel like there was always something that I was meant to do, but I was never able to find it. So I always tried to do all of this stuff, and I eventually just stopped looking for it, and I think I found it," she said.

"I just feel that all people should be able to experience life to the fullest, and I think that really includes knowing who you are truly, and being able to show other people who you are. And that's just what it's all about," she declared.

Happy birthday and happy Pride Month, Zaya 💜💚!
