Dyson Kilodavis is a young Lady Gaga 5 year old kid who wears women’s clothes and, specifically, dresses like a princess. Doesn’t that sound fun! The “Princess Boy” came to America’s attention this week due to his appearance on a number of talk shows, where he wore a series of fabulous tutus, sequins and other bedazzled items. Man, I wish I was that fierce when I was 5. And the thing is, his whole family is totally supportive—including the dad, who by the way is black. Straight black dudes usually hate black men who are a wee bit fabulous, so it’s a breath of fresh air that the family is so encouraging. Maybe that has to do with the fact that momma Kilodavis wrote a book called, My Princess Boy: A Mom’s Story about a Young Boy Who Loves to Dress Up, published by Simon & Schuster, which probably afforded a nice advance and thus puts a huge smile on the family’s bank account. However you look at it, this kid is great because he’s telling all you homophobes and genderists out there to pipe down: it’s okay to be queer! Now all he has to do is start a fashion blog and before you know it he’ll be sitting in the front row at Marc Jacobs.
