Last night, the 12-year-old made her first red carpet appearance since retired NBA player Dwyane Wade announced she's a transgender girl last month. To be clear, Zaya has said nothing regarding her sexuality, only gender.

D. Wade and his wife Gabrielle Union joined Zaya on the carpet for the 6th annual Truth Awards, which was created to recognize and highlight the accomplishments of the Black LGBTQ+ community and its allies, held at Taglyan Complex in LA. The Wades rolled up on the scene in custom designed Rich Fresh suits.

Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph and her husband/politician Vincent Hughes were in the mix. Sheryl's non-profit organization, The DIVA Foundation, teamed up with Better Brothers Los Angeles to host the awards ceremony.

The Wades were there to celebrate celebrity stylist Jason Bolden and his husband Adair Curtis, who were being honored at the ceremony with the Business Leadership Award. If you didn't know Jason and Adair both star on Netflix's "Stying Hollywood" series.

Zaya even presented Jason and Adair - whom she affectionately called her "chosen god fathers" - with their award during the ceremony. She received a lot of love when she hit the podium to speak. Check it: 

Proud parents D. Wade & Gabby shared flicks from their impromptu photoshoot before they left their LA mansion:


"Big night at the #TruthAwards2020 to celebrate our friends @jasonbolden @adair_curtis receiving the Business Leadership Award," Gabby wrote on IG. "We are incredibly proud of them and grateful for their presence, love & light in ourselves. @richfresh kept us FRESHHHHH in custom suits and @lorraineschwartz laced us with gorgeous jewels for the special occasion. It was an EPIC night filled with so much love & a real sense of community. It was important for Zaya to be a part of such a beautiful night & reminding her of all the love & support she has. We were moved to tears so many times throughout the night. So much gratitude."




In another post, the "L.A.'s Finest" star wrote, "We keep moving forward. We keep leading with love, light, and hope for a better more inclusive world. Stay put and stay mad if you want. We keep it pushing. Always."

"Zaya how does that custom @richfresh feel???," the retired NBA player wrote on IG. "Last night was a dope experience for our family.
