The drag queen teen: "Bullies will never change who I am"
It’s anti-bullying week and we’re continuing our ‘Be Kind’ campaign with 15-year-old Lewis Bailey. At just 11 years old and confused about his sexuality,
Lewis became the target of playground bullies. After years of torment he changed schools, hoping for a fresh start. Instead, he made headlines when the head teacher of his new school prevented him from performing in drag in the school talent show.
Appearing on our show in 2018, Lewis shared his story and since then has been overwhelmed with support. He has gone on to embrace his uniqueness and even has his own TV documentary, ‘My Life: Not Just a Boy in a Dress’.
He joins us now along with his biggest supporter, his sister Mariah to tell us how he’s helping others just like him.
