I'm on the left in the pic. I didn't really think of myself as being different growing up, since I aspired to be just like my brothers. I remember just wanting to be one of the boys since the beginning.
My mom used to joke about me always dressing like my brothers, often calling us her three sons.
I know my father was often lectured by his conservative Latino family for allowing me to wear boy's clothing.
However, my parents always allowed me to create my own identity.
And I am now living out and proud with the support of both my mom and dad.
