Five-year-old Dyson Kilodavis, dubbed "Princess Boy," says he likes to wear dresses and pretty colors and sparkly
"because it makes me feel happy."
Cheryl Kilodavis, the author of My Princess Boy, and her son Dyson, who wore a pink and black tutu, were interviewed by Today host Meredith Vieira this morning. Cheryl Kilodavis says the response to her son has been mostly good and Dyson tells other children who don't accept his wardrobe choices that they aren't his friends. She also proclaims 2011 as "the year of acceptance" following a year marked by many deaths to due antigay bullying.
My Princess Boy: A Mom's Story About a Young Boy Who Loves to Dress Up, which was inspired by Dyson's desire to dress as a princess, is being used in schools as an educational, antibullying tool.
