Writer Marty Maguire shares this adorable footage of himself as an 8-year-old boy, circa 1994, dressing up in drag as Mrs. Doubtfire for Halloween.
Maguire released the vintage footage in conjunction with the publication of his new eBook, American Psychonaut, via Thought Catalog.
Maguire says Psychonaut is "a short prelude to a larger, full-length memoir," and calls the clip as an "authentic and positive representation of a responsible and caring parent embracing and engaging the curiosity" of a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) child.
"My priority was to present the image of a real-life, confident, glowing young LGBT kid simply having a ball experimenting with and re-imagining gender protocols in an accepting environment," he told The Huffington Post in an email.
