Photographer, Kitty Wolf, overheard a little boy being told that he can’t play princesses because he’s a boy. So she set out to prove everyone wrong, and prove that these gender stereotypes are stopping children from doing what they love.
So, she set up the ‘Boys Can Be Princesses Too Project‘. “Because no child should feel ashamed of the things that bring them joy.” Working with Princesscapades Princess Parties, she created a series of photographs where boys ARE princesses and loving it.
“This project is designed to show support for kids and parents of kids that choose to play as princesses, no matter their gender. And perhaps show the world it’s ok to play as whoever you want, even if it’s a boy in a ballgown.”
So, here are some of her photos to prove that boys can be princesses too:
