People are loving and supporting a 16-year-old boy who wore a red dress to his school prom. Korben said when he was 12 that he wanted to wear a dress to his prom, and when he was 16, that wish came true.

The BBC said that the boy wore a sequined tuxedo and a ball gown skirt. Students and teachers at Archbishop Sancroft High School in Harleston, Norfolk, cheered him on.

His supportive mother, Nina Green, posted a picture of him in the dress when he was 16 years old. “When my son was 12, he told me he wanted to wear a gown to his school’s prom. We made it happen after four years.

She wrote, along with the photos: “I’m so proud of him for being true to himself, and the way his whole school welcomed him was amazing.” “He wants to go as himself and show his feminine side by wearing a tuxedo on top and a dress on the bottom. He was inspired by the actor Billy Porter to do this and wanted to be Korben and wear a dress. “

Green told him that she wanted to show him “living his best life” and that she was very proud of him for not fitting into stereotypes and being himself. Help from his mom means everything to him.

Korben said, “It sends the message that you can be whoever you want to be.” Green remembers what his classmates said when he showed up to school in a beautiful dress. “As soon as he got out of the car, everyone cheered, and I started crying.” Some of the teachers were crying, too, because he was being himself, “she said.

“Everyone has been very helpful, and his class has been amazing.” If you let your child be who they are, they will do their best for you.

Green talked about how important it is to be accepted by people, especially those you care about. “There are still people in the world who don’t get it, but you can’t beat the feeling of being accepted.” “I’m so happy for him!” she said. She also said that another parent had sent her a message asking for help with her own son, who had just come out as gay. Green said that she also wanted to show parents that it was fine to help their kids.

I really hope it will help people be more accepting, let proud parents know they are not alone and that they can celebrate their children, and let young people know there is a network there if they need it. “You have to accept your kids as they are,” she told him.

“When I told Korben about the retweet, he was blown away.” “He was so happy,” Green said. When Green’s alerts went off, they were on their way to the London Pride. Someone even used the tweet to figure out who Korben was. Then, during the Pride march, someone came up to him and asked, “Are you the boy in the red dress?” I think you’re great, “Korben remembered.

Looks fabulous! I absolutely love the gown/tux combo. I hope my son is still as confident and comfortable with himself at that age ❤ Never lose your sparkle

Her tweet was also full of stories from other parents about how they helped their kids express themselves. Green also sent them a photo of Pride.

“Wow! “When I posted pictures of my son being himself, I didn’t think it would get as much attention as it has,” she wrote. The support and good comments have been so many that the few negative ones, which we don’t care about, have been completely drowned out. I’m letting him live his life because it’s his.
