Redefining What a Leading Man Looks Like

The category is love, y’all,” actor Billy Porter said while accepting his Emmy for lead actor in a drama series. Billy Porter is a cult style icon. Openly gay and married, Billy is not just redefining what a leading man looks like, but he is now pioneering understanding and acceptance of being gay.

On 22nd September 2019 Billy Porter won an Emmy  for his performance as Pray Tell  in the drama series Pose – not only is Billy the first openly gay man to win an Emmy, but also the first openly gay man even to be nominated!

Billy has a warm and empathetic soul, and his Instagram account #theebillyporter shows him reaching out to and supporting so many people. Recently, Denise Marsh who is better known as #hatcouturecreations has become one of Billy’s favourite hat designers. Billy Porter is pictured here on the Ryan Murphy Show and at Richard Quinn’s runway show during London Fashion Week sporting hats by Denise Marsh from her new collection Gothic Dandy.
