A transgender shop teacher who wears massive prosthetic breasts while teaching doesn’t usually dress as a woman outside of his high school class, his neighbor says.
The Canadian teacher, a biological male who goes by the name of Kayla Lemieux, sparked outrage in September when pictures and videos of him teaching students at Oakville Trafalgar High School while wearing the fake breasts went viral. According to a neighbor, Lemieux usually ditches them when he’s outside of the classroom, the New York Post reported Friday.
“He wears prosthetic breasts extremely infrequently,” the neighbor told The Post, adding that “He puts the breasts on to teach, occasionally when he goes for a walk or when the cops visit.”
Police reportedly visit Lemieux’s apartment frequently for wellness checks because of alleged death threats the teacher has received. The Post reports that Lemieux left the school last week wearing the prosthetics and a blonde wig, but shortly after he emerged from his apartment dressed as a man, wearing sweatpants, a gray shirt, and a vest – but no fake breasts.
The neighbor alleges that Lemieux dresses as a man more frequently than as a woman. One parent was “shocked” by this news. “The school has been adamant in telling parents this is a transitioning teacher who needs to express themselves as a woman,” the parent said, adding that the way Lemieux dresses is “unprofessional” and “offensive.”
“I have an issue with Lemieux choosing to dress as a male because how he appears at school has become very disruptive to the school,” the parent added, questioning why he would dress like a woman at school but not in his personal time.

In November, The Halton District School Board, which oversees the school, said that after reviewing its dress code, it has decided that preventing the teacher from wearing the insanely large breasts with giant protruding nipples would result in “considerable liability,” the Post Millennial reported.
Parents and students protested in September over the teacher, but the school and board at the time stood by the teacher. The school board showed support for the teacher and shared that it strives to ensure that kids have a “positive learning environment,” as The Daily Wire previously reported.
Some parents told the Toronto Sun that students have been warned against capturing video or images of the teacher or face “suspension if they attempt to.”
