Mark Bryan, a 63-year-old robotics engineer from Dallas, Texas, has been wearing women’s skirts and heels to his day job for the past five years.
Despite receiving stares from strangers, Mark sees clothing as ‘genderless’ and believes that fashion is about personal expression rather than gender or sexuality.
Growing up in Dallas, Mark’s style was influenced by the 70s music group Kiss, who performed in heeled platform shoes. While he always took pride in his appearance, Mark didn’t experiment with heels until college.
However, he has always been fascinated by stilettos and high heels and would wear them in private with his girlfriend at the time.
Despite receiving some backlash from the LGBTQ+ community, who accused him of not standing with them, Mark’s wife supports his style choices.
He believes that clothing is a form of personal expression and doesn’t shy away from wearing what he likes to work, except on the football pitch.
Mark’s story is a testament to the evolving nature of gender norms and the increasing acceptance of diverse expressions of personal style.
