He can sing, he can act, he can kill it in a Christian Siriano tuxedo gown -- is there anything Billy Porter can't do? In fact there is: say things that aren't brilliant in interviews! Literally! Every single thing he's said in every single one is so good!
Porter's back to blow our minds this week with a new on-camera interview with British LGBTQ+ news site Pink News. Published Friday, the clip covers a lot of ground in its under two-minute runtime, hopping from the Tony Award-winning Pose star's glamorous red carpet fashions to the homophobic backlash he gets for wearing gowns.
\u201cWearing a dress is a "political act," says @theebillyporter. https://t.co/YQ9PaFP3U6\u201d
"I want to be a walking piece of political art when I show up," Porter tells the outlet. "If I'm over here wearing a dress, why does it matter? Any woman who puts on pants is considered strong because pants are associated with the patriarchy. It's like some sort of superiority complex. So, a man puts on a dress, and it's disgusting? So, what you're saying is 'men are fabulous,' 'women are disgusting?' I'm not doing that anymore."
