Keegan, 8, who identifies as gender creative, plays at the playground during recess at his elementary school near Austin, Texas, U.S., May 3, 2019. Keegan says he has been bullied in the classroom and ridiculed by friends for having a closet of makeup, wigs and costumes. Fuelled by the support of his family, Keegan has moved past his fears of exposing his gender nonconforming lifestyle to his peers, wearing his sparkly shoes to school. From the periphery a small triumph but to his teachers, family and friends, a huge leap into acceptance and a way forward. REUTERS/Amanda Voisard SEARCH "GENDER CREATIVE" FOR THIS STORY.
