Billy Porter Is Allure's First Male Cover Star - See the Photos!

Billy Porter is on the cover of Allure‘s February 2020 issue, out now.

Here’s what the Pose star had to say…

On what fuels him to make art: “It’s our turn. It’s time. I’m a part of the first generation of gay men, ever, who gets to be out loud and proud in the world. My generation is the first. Bitches are scared. And they should be.”

On masculinity: “The hetero normative construct that masculinity is better silenced me for many years. It was like my masculinity was in question before I could even comprehend the thought. I was sent to a psychologist at five years old because I was a sissy and my family was afraid. I love them. They didn’t know. It was a different time.”

On his life-long love of clothes and fashion: “It was always an expression for me. I always wanted to do something different. I always wanted to express myself in my clothes differently. And I always had great taste. And expensive taste. When I was 10, I could walk into a store for my Easter suit and scan the suits [he mimics pointing to one], and it would inevitably be the most expensive suite in the store.”
