SXSW: Premiere GAYBY BABY

Screen Shot 2016-03-17 at 5.33.29 PM.jpg


Supergravity Pictures teamed up with Heard Well to put together one of the most profound aspects to our modern society; GAYBY BABYBeing in the blogosphere and in the world of lifestyle, it’s not unusual for PR firms and Media Agencies to reach out to me to pitch their clients, products and/or projects to feature on #BSMHB.  There is endless amounts of emails that I sort through each day and I am VERY selective on what I chose to use, if anything at all.  My blog is 100% organic and me and I never want to get away from that.

This week I received an email about a documentary that is being released on May 1st, which coincidentally falls on International Day of Families, at least down under where the film was made.  However, the documentary will also be screened this April during SXSW and have an early release date across 50 cities. 

Through the eyes of children of same-sex partnerships and marriages, documentarians follow four children to showcase their experiences and perspectives, of being a part of a same sex family.  This riveting and powerful message is a movement to showcase that LOVE is LOVE.

This one really hit home for me as I have many same sex family members and friends that raise children together and the children are some of the most well balanced, overjoyed, level headed and well-loved kids I have ever had the pleasure of loving and knowing.

Regardless of your stance, please take a moment to watch this trail blazing trailer and get ready for the impact!

Love,

Crazy Sexy Cancer

Image

This evening I viewed a documentary with Steve that was referred to me by one of my most cherished friends, Melissa.  Melissa is my mirror when it comes to being spiritually like-minded.  Regarding the metaphysical, I believe Melissa to be one of the most in-tune, well adjusted people I know.  Being that I have a wide range of friendships in my life, each one lending themselves in different ways, I know I can always count on Melissa to understand me from a spiritual perspective and provide insights as to her beliefs and knowledge, as well.

Per my brilliant friend, she suggested that I watch a documentary made by Kris Carr, called Crazy Sexy Cancer.  Immediately after Melis made the recommendation, I began researching the documentary.  You see, I have a wonderful team of Doctor’s that is behind me, ensuring that all of the necessary measures are taken to cure me of my Stage 4 colon cancer, to rid me of all of the cancerous cells remaining and ultimately put me back together; physically.  But, what about mentally?

The Doctor’s are doing a wonderful job of making certain that all of my cancer related questions do not go unanswered, however, I am now finding that I am searching for a way to maintain quality of life.  To ensure that my time on this earth is not all spent battling cancer, but also LIVING, as per my previous posts have outlined.  How can I build, or, re-build, rather my quality of life and actually walk the walk instead of talk the talk.  That my friends, is what I am rifling for.

Crazy Sexy Cancer is a documentary filmed and directed by Kris Carr, which premiered in 2007 at SXSW.  Kris began her journey with cancer at the age of 31, in 2003 and decided to brave the elements and share her story with the world.  Carr’s specific type of cancer was so rare that literally 0.01% of the population has it.  During her epic journey to recovery, Carr allows viewers to witness her impending emotional expedition, which brings an array of different emotions and stages into view.  Not only does she showcase her remarkable, awe-inspiring chronicles, she manages to tell the accounts of four additional women fighting cancer, as well.

While the documentary was certainly informative, it really spoke to me on another level.  I was able to relate to Carr and the other valiant women on so many levels, even in my short period of time of having cancer.  All in pursuit of finding a cure for her illness, Carr explored all avenues of alternative medicine and forms of healing, even dubbing herself a “healing junkie”.  Many times throughout the film I wished that I could insert a flash-drive into my brain with all of the inspiring material that Carr and the other young women imparted.  Most of all, what I was able to take away from this incredible documentary was that cancer is not a death sentence, but rather a life sentence.  Each of the women chose to be pioneers of their life and their story.  Thanks to my fellow spiritual sponge and noble friend, Melissa, I was able to capture a glimpse of how other strong women have fought cancer and within that I have found boundless peace.

Love you, Melis! x
