The Wider Image: Nine-year-old helps teach educators about queer youth
Robby, a drag queen, 25, helps Keegan, 8, who identifies as gender creative, rehearse for his upcoming inaugural drag performance at the home Robby shares with his husband Alex near Austin, Texas, U.S., October 26, 2018. Under the mentorship of the drag queens, Keegan's drag life has blossomed. "I think that we're trying to sort of redefine success and also telling this eight-year-old that if you are yourself and you continue to be yourself and you grow up and you do good and that that's successful and I think that he's getting that mentality from us. But also from a personal perspective, I know that I am getting a sense of community as well, a feeling we're providing something that is going to positively affect this young kid," said Alex. "As gay people, we kind of have the ability to choose our family and I think what I am getting out of this, is family." Robby said: "At the end of the day, that's really what all of this is about, right? (It) is just creating positive change for a kid who maybe didn't know that there was an option to do so."
