It is a strange thing for a man to wear clothes that are seen to traditionally be the reserve for women. 

Other than clothes, many Kenyans get shocked when they see men putting on make-up or wigs. 

Most men who pull such antics are suspected to be homosexuals, even if they are not. 

However, there are men who break the rules and go all out with their fashion taste just to give an impression or be themselves. 

Here are some Kenyan men we have seen rocking dresses like beauties. 

1. Eric Omondi
