“This summer’s releases of SkyMed and Z-O-M-B-I-E-S 3 are incredibly impactful for me. Both presented strong roles that gave me an amazing opportunity to share values of inclusion and community-building through powerful storytelling. The Z-O-M-B-I-E-S films have always done a wonderful job of sharing these principles with their audience, introducing Disney’s first non-binary actor and character in the third film, sending a message of inclusivity on every level.”
