Jennifer Lopez caught wind of his story as well, and after her Milwaukee concert this week, met with Werth to tell him how impressed she was with his message.
After meeting with Werth, Lopez shared a TODAY show segment on the meeting, writing, “Everyone deserves love. Nat, thank you for celebrating with me… Always standing with you. Continue to use your voice and spread only love and acceptance. Don’t stop being you.”
