Jennifer Lopez Shares Her Nibling Brendon's Story in New Short Film 'Draw With Me'

Jennifer Lopez is sharing her nibling Brendon‘s story by putting the spotlight on the new short film Draw With Me.

For those of you that don’t know, nibling is a gender-neutral term to refer to the child of one’s sibling, instead of using terms like niece or nephew. Brendon is the child of JLo‘s sister Leslie.

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 it’s 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,” Jennifer said in a video that she filmed at home to introduce a clip from the short film.

She continued, “It’s a story that’s 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. Also because, Brendon is my nibling.”

Jennifer shared a clip of the first five minutes of the film and encouraged fans to stay tuned to see the full documentary at film festivals and on VOD.
