Jennifer Lopez was immediately supportive of family member Brendon Scholl when they came out as gender diverse. Check out the inspiring video she shared about her nibling (a gender-neutral term for “niece/nephew”).
In her intro to the Draw With Me clip, she says:
Draw With Me is a short film about a transgender youth and their journey of coming out to their family, and also engaging in their art to help them cope with the feelings they were having during this time. The film is important and timely in its story and message, and can have a huge impact on those of us who watch and experience what Brendon and their family is going through in this time of acceptance and admission. It’s a story that 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, everything is possible. And also, because Brendon is my nibling.
And if you’re wondering, the most common gender-neutral term for aunt/uncle is auncle.
