According to New York Post, the teachers hope their protest dubbed #ClothesHaveNoGender to support the expelled student will challenge and change the minds of gender stereotypes.

The whole move was initiated by a math teacher named Jose Piñas who rocked a skirt to class after the student was expelled.

The student was also forced to see a psychologist for wearing a skirt to promote gender nonconformity.

Following the incident, Gomez shared a video of himself describing how it happened and was watched by over 2 million people on TikTok.

Gomez's message was amplified by the math teacher Piñas who through social media disclosed was once a victim of the same, just like Gomez.

Piñas wrote:

“20 years ago I suffered persecution and insults for my sexual orientation in the institute where I am now a teacher."

More entrants to the campaign

According to El Pais’ report, two more teachers joined the course and decided to make May the month they wear skirts every day to school.

The information available to Legit.ng indicates that when she arrived at the school, Janet realised some of the pupils attended school with either worn-out uniforms or no uniforms at all.

She, therefore, decided to be of help by getting a sewing machine that she had learned to use, to sew uniforms for the pupils at absolutely no cost.

She considered finding solutions to this challenge a collective responsibility thereby engaging in sewing new school uniforms for each and every child in need with her personal funds and with the support from friends and loved ones.
