Watch the award-winning out actor be honored with the Out100 Visibility Award presented by Lexus and share why visibility is so important.
Colman Domingo is having a big year. From receiving buzz around his commanding performance in Netflix’s new Bayard Rustin biopic that sees the actor portraying the seldom championed queer civil rights icon, to a standout turn in the much-buzzed about musical film adaptation of “The Color Purple,” Domingo is out in front for everyone to see. The Emmy award-winning and Tony nominated actor is finally receiving his long overdue moment, but the out performer has always made himself known.
Presented by Lexus at this year’s Out100, Domingo was honored with the Out100 Visibility Award for bringing groundbreaking LGBTQ+ visibility to film, television, the stage, and media. In addition to moving hearts and minds toward greater equality, Domingo has become a model for members of the LGBTQ+ community, inspiring others to make their own dreams a reality.
When accepting this honor, Domingo was truly humbled by the importance of visibility, sharing how the visibility of a man like Bayard Rustin inspired countless LGBTQ+ people of color. Domingo aspires to that. Through his work, Domingo has shown others the hope of possibility, which is something he’ll never stop doing.
