When Nils Pickert moved his family from open-minded West Berlin to a more conservative small southern German town, locals rolled their eyes at his dress-wearing son. His 5-year-old boy became too embarrassed to put on his favorite frocks.
Pickert decided to teach his son a lesson in self-confidence and started wearing skirts around town himself.
“I didn’t want to talk my son into not wearing dresses and skirts,” Pickert told the German feminist magazine EMMA
. “He didn’t make friends in doing that in Berlin already and after a lot of contemplation I had only one option left: To broaden my shoulders for my little buddy and dress in a skirt myself.”
