Gabrielle Union, who you 90s kids probably remember from Bring It On, and her husband Dwayne Wade, from the Miami Heat, showed some supreme stanning for their son Zion, who was marching in Miami Beach pride, which took place on Sunday April 7th.


Zion, dressed in a yellow tank with a rainbow ribbon, looked fly for Pride, and he posed for a great pic with his stepmom, Union.

"We support each other with Pride!" Wade captioned the pic.

Pictures also surfaced of Union and Zion on the floats at the parade:

And it wasn't just stepmom and dad who showed up to support--but Zion's siblings.

"It's A Family Thing."

And even more people showed up to support Zion's first pride:

And people are getting emotional to see two parents so supportive of their young child who recently came out, noting that it is something often lacking in both the country at large but also in the black community.

It really is heartwarming.






"Every kid deserves to be accepted and supported and loved like this," wrote one user.





Union and Wade have been married since 2014.

Zion was born in 2007--he will turn 12 at the end of May.




We stan supportive parents.

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.

***TRIGGER WARNING. CONTENTS ARE SENSITIVE ***

Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?

We all know the telltale signs that something is making us uncomfortable. Suddenly, we begin shaking, either in our hands or knees or toes. Then, usually, sweat starts pouring out of every part of our body, making it look like we just ran through a rainstorm underneath a waterfall. Finally, we lose our regular speech functions. Everything goes out of sync and our words don't match up to what's in our minds.

What's interesting is that what usually brings about these fits of uncomfortableness differs from person to person, as evidenced by the stories below.
