Through this video, Scheuer wanted to capture Sam’s feelings, and he rightfully did so. Though he is straight, he dedicated this piece of beauty to his friend and wrote it from her perspective. He even revealed that he is aware of the critics and all that comes along. But he is here to tell stories and would never shy away from doing that!
Williams was overwhelmed when she got to know of the idea and joining the cast was one of her most exciting moments. She was elated with the design and hoped to make people feel a little less alone and that it is kind of very first for her when she is watching a music video with full trans population. And that’s merely empowering and inspiring!
