On Saturday (March 7,) Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union walked the red carpet appearance for the first time with their daughter, Zaya, who recently came out as transgender.

People reported that the couple attended the Truth Awards in Los Angeles where they both made remarks about how they are navigating this new experience in their family. Wade said that their friend, stylist Jason Bolden, and his husband Adair helped them a lot.

“They helped us navigate the right language to use, the questions to ask, and what to listen for. They also reminded us to make sure Zaya knew her community and felt the love and support inside and outside her home,” Wade says.

“It was really important for Zaya’s first red carpet to be celebrating black excellence in her community, real allies show up,” adds Union.

The family wore matching outfits for the evening that were designed by Bolden.
