The Wider Image: Nine-year-old helps teach educators about queer youth
Keegan, 8, who identifies as gender creative, is comforted by his father, Chris, 33, while attending a drag lesson at the home of his drag queen mentors, Robby and Alex, near Austin, Texas, U.S., August 14, 2018. Chris said at first he was ambivalent to Keegan's gender expression, not thinking too much about it. However, in the years following, the family made a collective decision to be more aware of prescribed gender typical roles and not imposing them in their home. Both suicide survivors, Megan and Chris felt it was important to just "let Keegan be himself." Both say they are very proud of Keegan's progress and encourage to be himself.
