At Colégio Pedro II in Rio de Janeiro, a trans student named Maria Muniz was fined for wearing a skirt to school. In protest, boys AND girls decided they would all wear skirts to class on the same day.

Shortly after, the school overturned their original decision to punish Maria. They also said they’ll consider relaxing the school dress code.

"For me, wearing a skirt was about expressing my freedom over who I am inside and not how society sees me," Muniz told Orange News.

"I am really happy about the way my classmates supported me and hope it serves as an example to others to feel encouraged to do the right thing," she added. "I was always taught at school to accept who you are. I am only trying to live that."

100% yes. A++.
