Thoughtful Words

Actor RayMartell Moore  has stated in numerous occasions that playing the role that he originated in 2007 has effected him in a profound way. Ever since the original film was released in the film festival circuit back in 2008 he has received inspirational and testiomnal emails from fans. In this blog RayMartell wanted to share a few of the letters with you;

  • -“Hi , I just want to say thanks ……the story of finding me helped me when I saw it for the first time , I related and broke down because I connected to the movie . I got strength to move on with my life and be fearless with who I am ..thanks for portraying a character for me that I was able to stand up to my dad ,and let him know who i am ……I found me.”
    “I just finished Finding Me and am sitting here in tears. It was like looking in a mirror. You are amazing in it and I can’t wait to see Finding Me 2. You did such a great job telling a story that so many live. You gave a voice to many that feel voiceless. Great Job!!!!!!!”

    – “Hey sir how are you doing? I am glad that you are on facebook. I am a fan of the movie Finding Me and the sequel. Personally I can relate to your character “Fabian”. Both of us have so much in common. Aside from the homophobic bitchy father…we both have fears about life and relationships. Sometimes I wish men like Lonnie and friends really did exist.”

    -“Oh my God I just wanted to say you’re an amazing actor and are an inspiration to LGBT african americans and LGBT youth just keep on doing what your doing brother because you’re  making a difference.”

    Catching up with Moore we asked him how the letters made him feel. He responded with, ” I feel at awe when I receive messages and posts on facebook/twitter from fans as they express their experiences after watching Finding Me & Finding Me: Truth. Finding Me gave me my vocation, which is to spread love through film and television. I found this vocation from not only the experiences of acting in a feature film but most of all its letters like these that tells me that I’m reaching and touching lives all across the world! I thank everyone who has taken the time to reach out to me to tell me how my work has affected them. I’m honored to be influential to the people who have seen my work. To the fans, you give me inspiration when you tell me I’ve inspired you. You remind me of what all this hard work is for, consistently encouraging me to keep going and be that voice for our generation. From the bottom of my heart I thank you and may God bless you over and abundantly!”
