General Hospital Stars Participate in GLSEN’s ‘Day of Silence’, Asking You To Do The Same

Courtesy/ABC

General Hospital’s Sofia Mattsson, Cynthia Watros, Kathleen Gati, Brook Kerr and Johnny Wactor appear in a video released this morning, where the actors look to camera and remain silent.

It’s all a part of the ongoing initiative from GLSEN and their “Day of Silence” campaign which is  a national student-led demonstration where LGBTQ students and allies all around the country—and the world—take a vow of silence to protest the harmful effects of harassment and discrimination of LGBTQ people in schools.  Every April, students go through the school day without speaking, ending the day with Breaking the Silence rallies and events to share their experiences during the protest and bring attention to ways their schools and communities can become more inclusive.

This year the day is this coming Friday April 23rd.  General Hospital is showing their support of LGBTQ+students and their right to be safe at school and free of verbal harassment, as well.  The video released today supports the organizations action.

 

Now they ask you to support it as well and make your own, ‘Day of Silence’ video and share it on social media.  Watch General Hospital’s below.

Then let us know, if you stand with GH and their support of GLSEN’s Day of Silence via the comment section.

I don’t disagree; but please stick with daytime drama stories, please. There are too many stories going in different directions; too many preemtions with the Chauvin trial. I love GH but when they go off on these pop culture issues, it’s annoying.

GLSEN’S Day of Silence is not a “pop culture issue,” Shelly.

Is GH actually planning to address this in an episode?

Obviously they can’t have everybody being silent for an entire episode (though it might help if Whiny Heiny was).

Actually, since they seemed to have dropped the story of little Aiden and their speculation over what his orientation might be (based on the fact that he baked cookies??). If he got bullied at school, that might be a way to work it into the storyline.

And then his idiot brother Cameron would find a way to blame it on Jason, like he does everything else.

Poor Aiden, that cute kid WAS bullied in school, by his own cousin, that viper Charlotte.

Violet, I’m glad we’re on the same page about that “little darling” Charlotte. If you ask me, that character got off way too easy, even causing Willow to lose her job thanks to Nina’s manic interference. I hate picking on a child but, let’s face it, the term ‘bad seed’ was coined for a reason.

Thanks, I just can’t stand that kid.Just wait until Papa has a new baby, courtesy of Maxi, which Iam pretty sure Brook Lynn will get her hands on, one way or another.

You have gay characters on this show and a transgender actress but none of them were used?

GH’s Kristina Wagner On Felicia’s Concern Over Maxie’s Emotional State

While Maxie (Kirsten Storms) knows exactly where baby Louise is, not many other people know, especially her mother, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Now, with Kristina Wagner back on-contract at General Hospital, it opens up more angles to play in the ongoing saga of “What happened to Maxie and Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) Baby?”

GH viewers know that Louise is “Bailey” and being taken of by Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton).  However, according to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, look for Felicia to be very worried over Maxie’s attitude toward finding her baby.

Wagner shared to SOD on Felicia: “She is absolutely concerned about Maxie. Why is she behaving this way? Is she traumatized to a point where she is not frantically looking for her baby?”

The actress goes on to say about her alter-ego: “Felicia thinks ‘What is wrong with you?  Your baby’s missing. Why are you not (falling apart)?’ And Maxie says, ‘I have to stay calm for my other children.’  She has a way of justifying it, but Felicia is questioning Maxie’s behavior.”

Look for Felicia to be more determined than ever to help find Maxie’s baby, which we know could spell trouble for everyone!

So, do you hope Felicia learns the truth about Louise, and helps Maxie with her cover-up? Or do you hope Felicia helps get the little one back in Maxie’s arms sooner than later? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
