The seven-year-old started wearing girls’ clothes outside of school last year because he feels most comfortable in them.

His mother, Marion Easton, 39, said Theo will wear boys’ and girls’ clothes depending on how he feels each day Daily record reported.

She said he still identifies as a boy.

Last week Theo wore his new uniform to the classroom for the first time.

He wore the official burgundy school apron, including a white polo shirt, knee socks and shiny black brogues.

Marion said the school and Theo’s friends were very supportive.

And she hopes her son’s actions can help other teens feel confident and brave enough to express themselves.

She told the Daily Record: “Theo’s first day in the girls’ uniform went great. He told his classmates that he was going to do this the week before, and one of his friends said, ‘We’ll still love you no matter what you wear.’ ‘The O’.

“Theo said he felt great playing in his apron at break and lunch. He was no different.”

“The school has been incredibly supportive of him. He said his teacher even told him she loved his clothes.”

“The smile on his face when he came home from school that day basically said it all to me. He’s just so inspiring and so brave.”

“I know I made the right decision by giving him that choice.”

Despite positive support from Theo’s school and friends, several TikTok users have commented on Marion’s videos of Theo, saying she will “go to hell” for dressing her son like a girl.

Marion said she wasn’t sure what the future held for Theo in terms of gender identity, but she just wanted to see her son happy.

She added: “Some parents have asked me if I think this is a phase. I told them that in this case he has a right to his phase.”

“The good thing about what Theo is doing right now is that he can educate adults, children and the rest of his school by saying, ‘This is who I am, this is how I’m going to be, I’m happy with it.'” That. If you have a problem with that, that’s your problem, but I’m not going to stop being who I want to be.”
