dyson the princess boy in a red dress
Five-year-old Dyson loves wearing dresses, jewelry, and all kinds of stuff that's traditionally for girls. Although his mom, Cheryl, worries that people might laugh at him, his family and his school have been super-supportive of his fashion choices. His mom wrote a kids' book called My Princess Boy, celebrating Dyson and offering a strong anti-bullying message.

At school, Dyson's teachers found out that he wanted to be a princess for halloween, so some of the male staff members showed up in ballet costumes to support him. Dyson's story is a heartwarming counterpoint to the recent high-profile wave of bullying-related suicides that inspired sex columnist Dan Savage to launch the 'It Gets Better' campaign.
