    Please keep anonymous - don't want people knowing who I am and who died etc...


    Basically, my uncle died to cancer in the night. His funeral is two weeks today. I am biologically a girl, but am closeted ftm transgender. My parents do not know this, but they do buy me some boys clothes (like mens t-shirts, shoes and hoodies etc). If I bought a dress my parents know I would never wear it again unless I had to, and it would be a waste of money. Is wearing a school uniform acceptable? My parents did suggest it.

    My school uniform is a grey blazer, white shirt, clip on tie, optional neck jumper, black trousers and black school shoes. I would be going straight from school (I live somewhere in Bristol and the funeral is somewhere in Exeter - a 2 hour drive). It will also be cold etc so I would be wearing a coat outside, which would slightly hide the fact that it looks like a school uniform.

    Would this be acceptable for a 13 year old to wear to a funeral?

    Yes I think that would be acceptable given you're only 13. I think most people don't really think twice about what younger kids wear to funerals just because it's like what kind of kid would wear a suit or black dress again as they grow out of them so fast. Plus if you're going right from school it would look like you've done that too so "more acceptable" on that front too.

    Yes or just wear something gender neutral. The uniform as described sounds fine. Dont worry. There no harm in just preferring to wear trousers etc. If its cold then you have good reason to keep your coat on.
