'It was his confidence and his androgynous look that was so appealing to me.

'I left a comment on his video thinking he wouldn't respond but in less than an hour he replied and we started chatting.

'Before James, I'd only dated girls but I've always been attracted to fem-men because I love the combination of confidence and femininity.

'He has a pretty face and pretty smile, what's not to love! It's an unusual pairing but we're so happy.' "

Kidspot Australia reports on the teacher using Tik Tok to highlight the need and results from creating queer safe spaces in schools.

From the article:

The veteran teacher, who posts under the username 'Just a queer teacher', chooses to strap his heels on each morning despite the fact that they make him nearly two metres tall – and wears them as he walks the best part of 5km around the classroom every day.

“The reason I do it is so it is so we can create an explicitly queer space for all of my students,” the TikTokker shared in a recent video, showing off photos of his favourite pair of stilettos.

“That way they know this a place for them, by them - because I never had one of those (teachers) growing up - so yeah, I'm a bit of a beast.”

Many people thanked the teacher for choosing to wear heels to school, with one grateful parent writing: “as a mum of a queer teenager, thank you for creating this safe space”.

“Wish I had this growing up! I'm not crying I just have something in my eye - it's tears, I have tears in my eye,” someone else gushed.
