Leo Noakes is an 11-year-old boy who recently came out as a drag queen. His mother, Lauren Noakes, explained that she always suspected that Leo was different than other boys but didn’t expect him to be courageous enough to show his true colors to others.
Despite the bullying and strange looks that he receives, Leo is a brave young boy who doesn’t care much about what others think of him. He openly identifies as a male but admits that he likes to wear makeup and dress in feminine clothing. He does so both at home and at school.
Noakes claims Leo has always been strongly interested in feminine features. According to her, he would always closely observe her “as she chose clothes, did her hair, and put her makeup on.”
At first, the mother believed all of this was just a phase that will pass on its own. After some time, however, Lauren’s insecurities escalated, and she became worried about her son’s future.
Eventually, however, she gave in and began supporting her son. Ever since that day, Leo reached out to the Drag Community and set up an Instagram account where he regularly shares his new looks.
Recently, during his appearance on Loose Women, the 11-year-old also revealed how dressing as a woman gives him the confidence boost he needs.
He appeared in the studio in high heels and fishnet tights to present his alter ego Violet Vixen. During the episode, he also explained that dressing as a drag queen makes him feel “more like himself.”
According to his mom, Leo doesn’t want to change his gender. “From my ignorance I assumed that that’s what he wanted. It’s not at all,” Lauren said.
“But, actually, he’s really open anyway, he really clearly just says, ‘I’m a boy, I like being a boy, just because I’ve got a penis doesn’t mean I can’t wear a dress.’ He just wants to show everyone it’s OK to be different. That’s what he taught me.”
After the appearance on the show, Leo received a lot of praise from the viewers. His mother was also applauded for accepting him for being different.
