Dezmond ima 11 godina, nosi žensku odjeću i zastupa gej prava

Vruće vijesti su nedavno stigle iz Njujorka – desetogodišnji Dezmond Napoles je prošetao pistom u ekstravagantnom izdanju, po zamisli dizajnera brenda Gipsy Sport Rija Uribea.

Dezmond je na Instagramu poznat kao „Desmond is amazing“ – oblači žensku odjeću i ima profil pun kontraverznih fotografija. Njegovo pojavljivanje na njujorškoj Nedjelji mode nikoga nije ostavilo ravnodušnim.

Desmond je rođen 2007. godine u Njujorku. Na reviji brenda Gipsy Sport istakao se kao glavna zvijezda. Mada nije riječ o takmičenju, Dezmond je uspio da obori Kaju Gerber s trona, budući da je ona proteklih mjeseci bila omiljena tema medija nakon svake revije na kojoj je učestvovala.

Dezmond sebe naziva androgenim modelom, a uzori su mu dreg kraljica (muškarac koji oblači žensku odeću i imitira žene zarad zabavljanja publike) RuPol, Endi Vorhol, Džon Galijano, Aleksandar Mekvin.

Kaže da je otkrio da je gej odmah po rođenju, a njegovi roditelji, uplašeni za psihičko zdravlje jedinca, angažovali psihijatre. Savjetovano im je da Dezmondu dozvole da bude ono što jeste, ali da ga ne ohrabruju niti sputavaju u daljem razvoju.

Roditelji ga nisu sputavali kada je poželio da nastupa, oblači kostime princeza van kuće i da se šminka. Vrlo brzo postao je omiljen lik u Njujorku i zastupnik prava LGBTQ populacije.

I dok čitav svijet polako počinje da se zanima za lik i djelo ovog neobičnog dječaka, on brine što je sve veći broj mladih i djece koja kreću njegovim stopama ali na pogrešan način.

Naime, Dezmond smatra da djeca koja žele da budu dreg umjetnici ne bi trebalo da seksualizuju svoje kostime i nastupe dok su još uvijek djeca. On cijeni da to može da dovede do nasilja, i da se stvori pogrešna slika o onima koji žele da rade ono što i sam Dezmond.

“Ljudi treba da plešu, pjevaju i oblače se onako kako žele. Možete da predstavite sebe onako kako želite. Nije važno da li volite džez ili rep, balet ili balove, haljine ili odijela. Budite VI”, kaže Dezmond, inače veliki obožavatelj lika i djela Dajane Ros.

Someone asked me about my outfits today. I am a huge supporter of sustainable fashion and repurposing. I watched a documentary called "The True Cost" and it made a big impact on me. I get most of the materials I use from @outofthecloset_bk, a LGBTQ thrift store. I take the old clothes and with my mom's help and hot glue, make them into something new and super creative. I get most excited when I can use every scrap of something and that's less waste to go to garbage dumps. . For example, for this outfit, the top is made from a sweater that I out grew and my PFLAG t-shirt from last year's Pride. The sleeves from my sweater were made into leggings. An old button down shirt was made into a skirt and I used the sleeves to make a turban. Total cost to make was $0.00. . This still was taken from a video for @refinery29. . Also, @thephluidproject 's theme this month is repurposing and sustainability. . . . Hi! 👋 I’m 🌟 Desmond 🌟 from NYC. 🗽 I'm a drag kid, dragutante, and draganista who does kinderdrag 🍭. .
