A New Photoseries Shows Little Boys They Can Be Princesses Too

A New Photoseries Shows Little Boys They Can Be Princesses Too

A new photoseries aims to tackle people's perceptions relating to gender stereotypes with a fun photoshoot just for boys.

The Boys Can Be Princesses Too Project, run by photographer Kitty Wolf from Chicago, creates fun photoshoots featuring little boys and their favourite princesses alongside each other.

Kitty started the project during her time as owner of Princesscapades Princess Parties, when she noticed that it wasn't just girls who wanted to dress up as their favourite Disney princesses.

The former princess performer noticed that boys weren't being given the same opportunities to dress up as the girls were.

She said: "When I ran my company, it was on the belief that ANYONE can enjoy the magic, beauty and empowerment of a fairy tale princess. Unfortunately I noticed that wasn't always the case."

In a GoFundMe account set up to further her project, Kitty wrote: "Time and time again I've seen boys being told that princesses are 'just for girls' or that liking princesses and especially dressing as one makes them weak, inferior or not boys/men."

"That hurts my heart," she continues. "No child should feel ashamed of the things that bring them joy."

"My goal here is to show these boys and world that it is perfectly acceptable for boys to admire and even dress like princesses."

"I want to show them it's ok for boys to dress up as their heroes, even if that means they're twirling around in a ball gown."

"Overall, I want everyone to see it's ok to be who you are and like what you like!"
