A video of a man dressing up in woman’s clothing has been making the rounds in China, but for a sweet reason that is sure to break your heart.
The unnamed man has been dressing as his late sister in order to help his ailing mother grieve. She was unable to handle the death of her daughter, and her mental health began to deteriorate. That’s when the man got the idea to dress up like his sister almost 20 years ago, and since she responded very positively to the outfit change, he has been doing it ever since.
“I don’t care what others think. She was so happy, I just kept doing it,” he said of his decision to dress as a woman. He even grew out his hair to make his appearance more convincing.
The majority of his day is spent taking care of his ailing mother. He plays the flute to earn money, relying on the kindness of strangers to give him their spare change as they pass.
The man has never been married due to the constant care his mother requires, but he doesn’t care what other people think and will continue to dress this way to ensure she’s happy.
