Y’all Can Go Home—This 8-Year-Old Boy Won NYC Pride
Among the thousands of people who marched in New York’s Pride March on Sunday was this little 8-year-old boy, who dazzled everyone with his fierce and fabulous strut. (Bonus points for on-point fan skills.)
We don’t know the little fellow’s name, but he reminds us of what Pride is all about—the freedom to be yourself without shame or judgment.

He has always been very gender fluid when it came to toys and his development. He preferred fashion dolls to action figures. I looked at both in the store and figured that the action figure was as much a doll as a Barbie, so if he wanted the one marketed to girls, that was fine with me.
He also likes to play with trains, especially wooden subway trains. He never wanted to play sports and likes to draw pictures and do word searches. He goes to ballet class and loves to dance. He loves drag queens and thinks that it is fantastic that boys can play dress up and become beautiful girls, even after they grow up. He, himself, likes to play dress up in skirts and dresses, but most days he looks like any other ‘boy.’
