Doctor’s Day 2017 with Robbie Kay film WAYS TO LIVE FOREVER

 

There is absolutely no question that today’s doctors are some of the most heroic figures in the world. They dedicate a lot of time which begins in their schooling years and spend long nights studying so that they can one day make this world a better place for the greater good. Their work days are some of the longest out there. They don’t think twice about making great sacrifices, and around the world, in some cases, doctors even place their lives on the front lines for others. At the end of the day, they do their work without seeking credit or publicity. Sometimes we may not like going in for a checkup or physical, but a trip to the docs office can keep our bodies in shape and can even save our lives.Doctors day

World Wide Motion Pictures Corporation supports doctors everywhere. During the campaign for the release of the feature film Ways To Live Forever, with Robbie Kay and Ella Purnell, WWMPC reached out to John Hopkin’s University, which is a world leader in research and education in medicine as well as public health, to talk about how we can give back to them. Ultimately, a portion of the proceeds from the release of the were set aside to help fund pediatric cancer programs at John Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center.

 

Though this was only a small token of gratitude towards doctors and researchers everywhere, our appreciation for them speaks volumes. While doctors don’t wear capes, their white coats will forever symbolize their heroic works in which we today recognize and acknowledge. Doctors worldwide: we thank you and salute you for all your hard work and dedication.

BE YOURSELF AND CELEBRATE NATIONAL COMING OUT DAY

 

Welcome to 2016 where same-sex marriage has been legalized, visibility for the LGBTQ community has skyrocketed, and where calling something or someone “gay” does not mean dumb or stupid. Thanks to the efforts of the Human Rights Campaign in  spreading awareness, coming out of the closet to friends and family has become a safer place for everyone in today’s society.

Before there was National Coming Out Day (NCOD), there was the 1987 March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights fighting to spread the awareness of the AIDS crisis and how little the Ronald Reagan administration did not recognize the dilemma as an actual issue. A year later, to celebrate the anniversary of the march, NCOD came to be!

So, how does the Teen Wolf, Arrow, The Grinder, and Scream Queens star play a role into this huge scheme of national coming out day? Colton Hayne was honored with the Human Right Campaign’s Visibility Award! Haynes’s speech trended over Facebook the weekend of the event.

Haynes shares three facts about himself that individuals that didn’t follow him on social media should know:

  1. He grew up in Kansas.
  2. He has been obsessed with clouds and wanted to be a meteorologist.
  3. Lastly, the fact that he’s gay.

During his speech, he states that his sexuality comes as natural as the colors of his eyes. Working with his sexuality has made him an open and honest person, which tied into his acting career. Haynes talks about how he takes on so many different roles that he never felt like himself until that moment on his the stage giving his speech.

“I don’t necessarily feel especially deserving of this recognition. We all know that there are many other ways, many other people  who have come before me and blazed the trail as LGBT advocates and role models. And I’m walking in their shoes and I’m following in their lead. Instead, I’ll accept this award as a promise. My promise is simple and real and I’m not making it you. I’m making it to the next generation of lesbians and gay men, bisexuals, transgender youth, and I hope my example will give them the confidence and hope to be who they are as well and for them to conquer their own fears and their own hesitations.”

Haynes reassures those questioning about coming out of the closet that if they do, it will be worth it in the end. They will finally get to be themselves along with find out who they are, who their families and friends are, and help them become honest and open individuals.

National Coming Out Day is not about finding that happily ever after, as Haynes states in his speech, but it is about having a happy beginning. So whether you’re a cowboy, a drag queen, a bartender, or a mobster, like in Pop Kowboy, celebrate yourself and enjoy being the only person you can be, yourself!
