A twenty-six-year-old man who identifies as an "ordinary guy" has opened up about how he loves wearing skirts and dresses and how he believes people shouldn't assign gender to a piece of fabric.

Now, this is something we love to see!

Connor Keaney, who is from Birmingham in the U.K, doesn't conform to gendered fashion and instead, dons dresses and skirts.

When the likes of Harry Styles started to wear skirts and dresses, Connor felt it was a sign and around 2 days ago, he bought his first skirt and felt amazing.

"I just knew it was for me," Connor said in an interview to local media, "I felt confident and beautiful and didn't care if people thought it wasn't for me!"

"I have never felt so confident, beautiful, sassy, comfy, and cool, and I will never look back!"

Connor's ultimate favorite pieces of clothing are fitted dresses, vintage items, suit trousers, blazers, and most of all a tennis skirt.

"I feel so beautiful and powerful in a tennis skirt... and it just goes with everything!"

When talking about what inspires him, Connor says, it's "anybody who is creative, courageous, confident, not scared of what people think, down to earth, and not scared of the norm."

He associates himself with the hero of David Walliams' children's book, Boy in the Dress, explaining that he's the real-life "boy in the dress" and he reads that book every few months to help himself.

Connor then admitted his biggest influence is his mom, who introduced him to thrift stores and is "fabulously stunning herself" while wearing clothes from there.

"She's the most loving and supportive mom. She is so strong and stands by me whatever I choose to say, do, or wear. She tells me how it is."

He believes it's about time we get rid of gender labels, especially in regards to something as simple as clothing...

And the young man strongly believes that in the near future, clothing will be completely genderless.

"We already see a lot more 'unisex' clothing which is a step in the right direction. With the likes of celebs like Yngblud and Harry Styles wearing 'women's' clothes, it's showing every generation that it's OK to wear whatever piece of clothing you want. It's just material."

And as for men out there who are interested in trying women's clothing?

"If there is a male out there, or any other pronoun for that matter, that wants to wear 'feminine' clothing, I say do it," Connor said.

"If you're not comfortable doing it in public find a safe space to start with — like your bedroom, or a friend's house, or an LGBTQ+ friendly bar, and be yourself there. Go to thrift shops to find some bargain beautiful pieces with less judgment than fast fashion shops!"

Connor, you are amazing! What do you think about men wearing more feminine clothing?
