Kelsie, who is known for her compelling pop melodies, has made her directorial debut with this video, which was filmed in Orlando, Florida. The vibrant visuals showcase Kelsie and Dempsey enjoying life together, from visiting Gaylord Ice Sculptures to dancing and singing at Disney World. Dempsey’s infectious joy and unwavering spirit shine through, demonstrating that transgender youth are just like any other kids—they need and deserve the same care and respect. “Twinkle” is also the lead single from Kelsie’s newly released EP, “The Drawer.” The song and its video aim to celebrate the unique contributions of transgender individuals to society, countering the negative rhetoric and discrimination they often face. Kelsie’s heartfelt message is clear: “Together, we can break down the walls of ignorance, fear, and prejudice so every human can live to their full potential with dignity and respect.”

The video’s intimate feel, captured with a GoPro and iPhone, intersperses moments of Kelsie and Dempsey’s adventures with archival footage of Dempsey growing up in a loving and supportive family. This blend of personal and historical perspectives creates a touching narrative that underscores the importance of acceptance and love. As political and social pressures mount against the transgender community, Kelsie Kimberlin’s “Twinkle” stands as a beacon of hope and inclusivity. By highlighting Dempsey’s story and advocating for the rights of transgender youth, Kelsie invites us all to reflect on the importance of embracing diversity with compassion and understanding.
