James' interest in ballet and dance falls outside the gender box. Despite facing insults, criticism and adversity from peers, his fathers Robert and Thomas have supported his passion from the beginning.

Their support has inspired him to not only continue his passion, but also to pass that support on through mentoring others.

This Father's Day, think about how you, as a father or father figure, have the ability to positively influence your son. Promoting gender equality and teaching the boys in your life about healthy equal relationships helps you do your part in creating healthy families and strengthening family bonds.

Teaching our sons how to achieve consent, set boundaries, use respectful communication in all their relationships and value women and girls is something we can all do.

It Starts With You, It Stays With Him.
