During my visit in Paris, @montblanc and @red have asked me what makes me feel EMPOWE(RED)? My answer: feeling fully and wholly authentic to my true self. Sometimes, that’s a very hard thing to do. But the real growth and individual power come when you stand up for the truth that pierces through many hearts and minds, creating empathy and change.

But, let’s not get too ahead of ourselves. Disney has reportedly announced the release date for the film, which is February 21, 2021, meaning we have quite some time to wait before we can see the classic fairytale come back to life.
2019 has been very kind to Billy, while he is set to star in the upcoming Like A Boss movie which will hit cinemas early next year, he also won the award for Outstanding Actor at the Emmys just a few weeks ago, making him the first-ever openly gay actor to swoop up the prize.
