FRANKLIN, Tennessee – A teenage boy from Tennessee who wore a dress to the ball to crush the stigma surrounding gendered clothing has said his mission is accomplished, despite a viral standoff with a detractor.

Dalton Stevens, an 18-year-old from Franklin High School, said he chose a stunning red floor-length dress and 6-inch heels to wear to her prom with her boyfriend to show that the men can wear dresses – and look amazing in them.

The reaction has been stellar. At a pre-prom dinner and while taking photos with her boyfriend, Stevens said he was approached by strangers who applauded his outfit and turned him on. People outside were taken aback by the dress – and in Franklin, Tennessee of all places, they said.

“I wanted to show everyone that it was a piece of cloth,” he said. “Nothing more, nothing less.”
