finding a safe way to express my masculinity
I used to dress my brother up in all the outfits I wished I could wear myself. He was my little model. I would style his hair, put him in all the raddest clothes and beg him to let me do a photo shoot. Growing up, the safest and most acceptable way for me to show off my authentic gender expression was to do it through him. Thanks bro, for giving me this outlet to explore and develop my true sense of style. It's nice to finally be wearing it myself.
