Actor and singer Billy Porter is living right now. After years of success in the theater world — including his Tony Award-winning role in Cyndi Lauper and Harvey Fierstein's Kinky Boots — Porter is conquering TV, with his role as Pray Tell in the critically-acclaimed Pose. As the FX drama racks up awards, Porter is becoming a fixture on the red carpet, boldly donning gender-nonconforming fashions that are striking and singular. “One of the things I’ve realized is that I’ve always had a gender-fluid sensibility with clothes, and it was so squashed by homophobia,” Porter recently told The New York Times, adding that designers haven't been the most accomodating when it comes to loaning him male and female styles. Undettered, Porter is rocking the red carpet in dresses, heels, and form-fitting jackets. Bring it on and smash the patriarchy, Billy! Check out all these lewks below.
