Being a transgendered person is already hard enough, but growing up in the spotlight of famous parents can make transitioning even harder. Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union are only one recent example of celebrity parents accepting their transgender children.
Parents in the public eye who accept their children's chosen identity are setting positive examples to transphobic ones watching. It's a beautiful transition, but trans youth are also more prone to domestic violence and hate crimes. No child should be abandoned, and we applaud these parents for doing the right thing.
