One chilly October afternoon, My cousin Adam came over to celebrate my birthday.
While our parents were downstairs catching up, Adam and I decided to go play in my room.
Adam and I loved playing dress up. I was always very aware of my gender identity. I never thought that it was out of the ordinary that Adam liked to dress up the same way I did.
When Adam and I came downstairs, all dressed up that night, his dad threw a fit! He told Adam that boys do not wear dresses
Adam ran outside crying. He felt ashamed for what had happened.
Why am I not allowed to dress the way I like? What is wrong with me?
I remember thinking how unfair it was for Adam. He was scolded for expressing himself. To this day, Adam has kept his identity to himself. I fear that he will never feel accepted if he were to open up. No one should feel lost in that way.
