Billy Porter has built a name for himself by inhabiting diverse characters willing to live as their true selves without regrets. So, it’s no surprise that the “Pose” star’s debut directorial feature also reflects the joy of living authentically.
“Anything’s Possible,” which hits Amazon Prime Video on Friday after premiering at Outfest Los Angeles last week, follows Kelsa (played by Eva Reign), a Black transgender girl about to start her final year of high school in Pittsburgh. These days, Kelsa is self-assured about her gender identity, and is laser-focused on getting into college and enjoying time with her best friends Em (Courtnee Carter) and Chris (Kelly Lamor Wilson) before graduation.
Still, there’s one aspect of teen life that Kelsa’s yet to experience: a first love. Things start to look up when she catches the eye of an adorably sheepish classmate, Khal (Abubakr Ali). The pair’s budding romance, however, is complicated by some of their less-than-accepting peers and Khal’s conservative Muslim family.
HuffPost caught a sneak peek at “Anything’s Possible” via the clip below. In it, Kelsa and Khal share a heartfelt moment before facing their classmates.
Watch the poignant scene below.
