Jun 18, 2021

MIAMI - June 18, 2021 - PRLog -- Just in time for Father's Day, NBC 6 South Florida featured Netflix's Fatherhood with Kevin Hart. Based on a true story of a new father who lost his wife in childbirth, the movie released on June 18, focuses on the plight and challenges of single fatherhood. Two Fathers representing the Fatherhood Task Force of South Florida were invited to the NBC studios to share their personal stories of raising their daughters as single Dads in conjunction with the film. https://www.nbcmiami.com/entertainment/6-in-the-mix/local-organization-honors-dads-on-behalf-of-new-film-fatherhood/2473241/Aaron Harrigan lost his partner in childbirth and tells of the stigma he faced being seen as a second-class citizen parenting his daughter. Now his beloved daughter is 10 and is proud of how hard he fought to be there for her.Paris Roper, divorced early in his marriage, realized single Dads did not have access to resources in the same way that Mothers have, acknowledging he needed them to be an engaged Dad.Aaron and Paris would like society to change attitudes, behaviors, and laws to anticipate and accommodate the needs of single Fathers for the benefit of children. Holly Zwerling, CEO/ President of the Fatherhood Task Force stated, "I salute both men for bravely telling their stories. Single Fathers' experiences are under reported because there are fewer resources providing services to new Dads, like the stay-at-home Father or the Father co-parent."Aaron said, "Pride and ego often get in the way of Fathers sharing their feelings and figuring out how best to handle the parenting situations."  Paris added, "It's very helpful to have other Dads to talk to so you don't feel alone."Ms. Zwerling urges medical, educational, and social services to realize both Fathers and Mothers need to be recognized as worthy parents and should be provided with resources they need to provide for their children as well as access to health and mental health services prior to be coming parents. Both Aaron and Paris agree that Fathers need to step up and expect to be included in all parenting matters affecting their children especially at school. The time to dismiss the importance of Fathers is in the past.About the Fatherhood Task Force of South Florida https://www.ftfsf.orgAn advocacy organization with national influence, the FTFSF's mission is to facilitate the involvement of Fathers in children's lives by developing and promoting programs for fathers, grandfathers, uncles and male mentors/role models related to all stages of parenthood.

B1GBTV Membership is only $1.99 per month for unlimited highly energetic, hysterically funny and entertaining upbeat content with a free three day trial period all while, 10% of the network’s total yearly net profits go to directly benefit autism charity.   Mezey Holdings, today announced a new independent strategic partnership deal with Vimeo OTT Network’s for a new state of the art platform for Mr. Mezey to showcase his funny, energetic, entertaining, and crazy daily life on the OTT network’s platform for Vimeo. Mr. Mezey will feature his upcoming smash hit reality series “B1G B” as well as daily life and live content in segments where you can see his genius and madness being the perfect disrupter as he has always been to the sports and celebrity marketing industry. Mezey is currently looking for other low budget finished films and television series to sign for distribution deals as well on his newly mind blowing and insane OTT Network platform. Mezey is focusing his content on the individual or small business owner that needs a platform to showcase their voice on minority and mental health issue based film and television projects. Mezey has always been a mentor to those with special needs being high functioning asperger autistic, special needs, and bipolar himself struggling with mental illness his entire life. Now Mezey wants to give a voice to film and television projects that focus on combatting mental health, racism and anti-semitism in our society today.   Mezey was recently wrongfully incarcerated for 18 months and coerced into signing a sloppy unconstitutional plea agreement for misdemeanors in a misunderstanding with federal authorities due to his lifelong struggles with mental illness and was wrongfully targeted by the U.S. Department Of Justice.  Mezey while incarcerated saw the injustices going on against the broken federal and state prison systems that have failed the mentally ill and saw massive amounts of racial inequality. While inside federal detention from 2018 - 19 Mezey was sexually assaulted by being groped by a liutenent in FMC Butner and had his face bashed in so badly by federal officers and inmates in each FDC Miami and FMC Butner that Mezey now suffers from permanent brian, knee, spine and shoulder injuries which the Federal Bureau Of Prisons has refused to make restitution on. Mezey, now a free man, is now focusing his efforts on prison reform for the mentally ill as well as racial injustices he personally witnessed. This is precisely why Mezey has created B1GBTV to give a voice to the voiceless through the medium of film and television series that focus on inequality and mental illness so the world can hopefully become a better place for all of us in our own individual right to shine and be that bright star we all want to be.   Contact: Mezey Holdings.
