Puerto Rico Just Opened Up The Dress Code For LGBTQ Students

Let boys be boys however they want.

Guys wearing skirts has become popular among famous folks like Jaden Smith and Kanye West.

And it's been seen on high fashion runways.

In Puerto Rico, kids are required to wear uniforms to school.

Girls are supposed to wear skirts and boys pants or shorts.

But a new ruling from Puerto Rico's Education Secretary Rafael Roman declared that any student — male or female — can choose to wear pants OR skirts if they want without punishment.

The move came after gay rights activists pressured educators to make schools more safe and tolerant spaces for LGBTQ kids.

"Changing people's mentality from one day to another will be hard," said Christina Torres, director of the Dr. Rafael Pujals School in Ponce, PR.
