The Wider Image: Nine-year-old helps teach educators about queer youth
Keegan, 8, who identifies as gender creative, rehearses for his upcoming inaugural drag performance at the home of his drag queen mentors, Robby and Alex, near Austin, Texas, U.S., October 26, 2018. "I really think that one of the most important things for this is just creating an opportunity for this kid to truly express himself in the way that he feels comfortable in a safe environment where nobody's here to judge him. No one's ever criticised him, no one's there to say that he's doing something that he shouldn't be doing because at the end of the day, he's a kid, let the kid just be a kid," said Robby, Keegan's mentor and a drag queen.
