Nothing, if you live in the progressive world of Next Tuesday. It will just be known as a “Rad Camp for Gender Noncomforming Boys and Their Parents“.
(Jezebel) – Photographer Lindsay Morris has been documenting a summer camp for gender nonconforming boys and their parents. The photos are striking, and the whole experience sounds life-changing and life-affirming for the boys and their parents.
The four-day camp exists so gender nonconforming boys “don’t have to look over their shoulders, and they can let down their guard. Those are four days when none of that matters, and they are surrounded by family members who support them,” Morris told Slate. She’s putting together a put on the camp, which will be available in Summer 2014.
The weekend is spent encouraging the kids to be themselves, and that includes makeup lessons, wardrobe changes, and fashion shows. Uh, so in other words: The best camp.
YOU ARE YOU – This project documents the experience of gender non-conforming and transgender biological boys at an annual weekend family camp. Camp You Are You (whose name has been changed to protect the privacy of the participants) offers a temporary safe haven where gender-variant boys can freely express their interpretations of femininity alongside their parents and siblings. These images represent the spirit of the children as they shine in an atmoshpere of support. Here they can be true to their inner nature without feeling the need to look over their shoulders.

Reminder, these are all little boys…
Can anyone tell me how adults, secluded at camp, dressing little boys up like little girl prostitutes is courageous, brave and healthy?
How is it even legal?
