“Today we celebrate all that is amazing about @jacobwindhamburke,” she wrote in the caption. “#DevineDevon We are so blessed to have such an amazing child- today let’s celebrate acceptance and all that is love, shiny, and beautiful in the world.”

In the video, Jacob shared why decided to do drag.

“I dressed up like as a girl and acted like one my entire life,” he explained. “My sisters always dressed me up and do my makeup, and I really liked doing all that. So I thought, ‘what if I do this but on a bigger and grander scale?'”

“Being a woman, in drag, feels the most empowering I’ve ever felt in my life,” Jacob claimed in a confessional interview. “I didn’t know good this would feel until I did it. Ah, I love it so much.”
