She hosted Gabrielle Uniononline in her show. Union has stepdaughterZaya (12) who is transgender. When Zaya was under fire for being trans, Gabrielle stood by. There are a lot of parents who don’t support their trans kids and they are even ashamed of being their parents. “If trans children are not perfect images of them, some parents not interested. And it’s heartbreaking. So for us, we are just doing what’s natural to us and loving her”, Union added.
