An actor who changed gender

Zaya Wade is the eldest daughter of retired NBA superstar Dwyane Wade. Zaya publicly came out as trans in 2019. She celebrated her 14th birthday with a rollerskating-themed party in May 2021. Dwyane Wade said, in an interview on NBC’s “TODAY,” “She’s the strong one in this family. She’s a hero.” Leyna Bloom made history in July 2021 as the first transgender woman to appear on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. In a celebratory Instagram post, Bloom wrote, “We deserve this moment; we have waited millions of years to show up as survivors and be seen as full humans filled with wonder.”
