“This is a story about my friend Paul Gallo. Today he is a San Francisco based fashion designer, educator and inventor, living his dream. But growing up he was the boy who drew dresses.

I’m so happy that Paul’s creativity helped keep him strong both inside and outside as a child. Our children need stories like these. We need to do more than tell our LGBTQ kids that things will get better, we need to provide tools and role models from real life that show how those of us in the LGBTQ community have stayed strong in this world.

This is a story about allowing your creativity to be your power, your guide and ultimately yourself. The Boy Who Drew Dresses is an opportunity to seed OUT this true story from our community to our LGBTQ children.” – Maya Gonzalez
