tyTy Nic has had some struggles in life and at school. Recently, he was forced to wear makeup and dress like a girl for his high school year book photo. But he’s not letting those challenges keep him down. He and his supportive father, Tim, have created this music video to inspire other youth to be comfortable as who they are.

“My dad is still learning the pronouns but he gets my name right, and I’m very proud of him,” Ty Nic told us.

Tim, Ty’s dad said, “I just want my child to be happy.”

We do too, and we wish all the fathers in the world would be so supportive!
