Jennifer Lopez introduced a short film by her non-binary nibling (sister’s child) Brendon Scholl as she continues to be an amazingly supportive auntie.
The singing, acting, dancing sensation said that Brendon’s film Draw With Me is is “very close to my heart because it was a family affair. It’s about accepting change and challenges with love and knowing that when we do, anything’s possible.”
The film is about a transgender young person and their process in coming out to family and using art to learn about themselves.
In the trailer for the film, Brendon talks about how they were worried about losing friends and family.
“I said, ‘Don’t you want to be a girl?'” Brendon’s mother says in the trailer, talking about the moment she found her child’s chest binder. “And they kinda looked at me and said, ‘I’m not a girl.'”
“I shouldn’t have to be scared to tell people who I am,” Brendon says.
