“Clothes Have No Gender” or “laropanotienegenero” movement began last year after a boy was expelled for wearing a skirt to school.

Teachers across the country joined in by ditching their trousers and wearing skirts to school.

Mikel Gómez wore a skirt to school after he was told to go and see a psychologist by his teacher.

Gómez then shared a TikTok video of the experience, which quickly went viral, encouraging others to try to tackle gender norms and go to school in skirts.

The pair wanted to show support for the pupil after he was picked on for wearing an anime t-shirt, the Metro reports.

The bullying resulted in him changing his outfit after he was called homophobic slurs.

Horrified by this, at the beginning of May, Ortega decided to start wearing a skirt before being joined by his colleague, Velazquez.

The teachers told El Pais their decision to wear skirts was to “increase tolerance and respect” while inviting other teachers to do the same.
