"Years. I've had the luxury of seeing. Many of my friends rise companion. I have had the luxury of watching the process. Taking from it, but things are like. And making note of the things that I don't like and one of the things that I saw was that women get to use fashion as a revenue stream as a signifier as art, and so I sat out that that's what I wanted to do. I had no idea that it would catch on so quickly that it would happen so fast. And that it would happen as large as it did I wasn't really wearing gender fluid things outside of playing Lola in Kinky boots. Like I wasn't even thinking of it like that and I was getting ready to go on a summer tour for album. Billy twitter presents the soul of Richard Rogers and I knew that I wanted to look like I was like after I'm trying to like us out to bridge my way back into the music industry and need a look. It's not just like. This Geek Chic thing that I'm doing. What and I was I was out, and I happened to stumble across the store of the designer Rick Owens. And I want Dan, and he's you know lots of Unisex stuff. Lots of like downtown seek dress shirt. You know platform shapes angular, just like wild crazy. And I spent a lot of money that day. In sort of made the change and made the shift that it was like well I'm going to go in this direction. There was a lady you. It's Unisex you can. It's it's interesting to me that it never occurred to me after having one Tony Award and a grammy for planet directly that, but I think the difference is and the difference in what I'm doing. Is that I actually am not directly? I know shading because drag. And amazing art form, but I am assist gender gay man who likes to wear dresses sometimes I like to explore fashion. I like to be gender non conforming. Like to be a walking piece of our everytime I show up to one of these events. That's my goal. Why like ablaze ask the question? Why from the moment that I was a child? I was very curious. I'm very inquisitive and a guy me in trouble all the time, but why? WHY CAN'T DOT DOT DOT? Why should we like why whose rule who made that? Like why do we have to follow rules that are made by who then break the rules like? Been Rule Breaker I'm just thrilled and humbled that I lived long enough to see the day where my rule breaking does good things for me. Yes I love that. You've talked before you know about how it's surprising. Even when like you know maybe straight, says Ben are like they see you on TV and they're like my kids like billy porter. You know yeah it. It's changing so much I mean I remember when when I was a kid. You know like I like the Sitcom Martin and I liked shin-ei that character. Like. Even trying to impersonate that character in school, her was something that got me in trouble. You know like teacher would call my mom and it's like you think back like. Why was that something to call a parent over? You know right because Martin can do it. Yeah, but Martin is straight and doing so when you're straight and doing it's easy because the audience knows you're gonNA. Have Sex with your wife. That's called Tanto. It's a style, but comes out of London. Unlike at hot to the GYM WANNA man Mrs Doubtfire. All of those things are lovely. They are straight men in dresses. That's what the world at large can stomach the minute that the person in the dress. If gay the minute that their same gender loving in address, it becomes dangerous for some reason. When I was asked to go do sesame street. That hasn't aired yet. It's airing season. They asked for the Oscar dress and I'll came, and they wrote a beautiful song about friendship with me in my Oscar. Dress in a penguin. And then. Shows up. In little ferry girl showed up and we sing a beautiful song sesame. Street me Standing Oscar address on the stairs. You know the. Stairs and they posted it on their page. And you know the bitch free. All that comes from people because I'm wearing the dress like I. don't understand you know like the governor of Arkansas something threatened to take the funding from P away. If they air the episode where I was in address because it's perverted, you know there's an agenda. The Gay Agenda and I'm GONNA come in molested children. It's like this is exactly the conversation I wanNA. Like in a public town hall forum, so we can has it out, so we can really really talk about why me over here minded. My own black asked businesses doing what I as a grown man can do has anything to do. Where's the line that leads to me coming into your house molester, children. You to walk me through the line that gets from this tha I need. You know because in my life. I've only had sex with consenting adults. A child molester is a child molester, gay or straight. That's not the same thing. Stop complaining those things. It's not the same thing I'm sick having this conversation. That's why you see the anger. You know that's why about trauma show sometimes like I, said the other day. EICHNER because I'm sick of it I'm tired every single day of my life. It's business, so you might get cut out now. You ve very well month. I'll do my best not to, but you might get cost out. In the wrong way. Also the moral is like what they're mad at is that they can't shove their beliefs about who you are down, kids throats. It's not the it says you had a voice that you had a say in it at all. It's like no actually what sesame street is doing is teaching children. What y'all aren't teaching, which is everybody on the planet as human and some people are going to be different than you and that doesn't mean that you treat them poorly. Treat everybody the say. That's what sesame street at thanks. That's what most of you all proclaim. From you know the Evangelical God point of view, it's like with the way you're going to have anything to do with God or the Bible. It's actually the thing of what the Bible says. So now I'm really. Not. Speaking of Billy Eichner, a friend of mine, Lewis's I loved seeing. That interview of yours with him hosting Jimmy Camel, it was so exciting seeing two gay men having conversation on a late night TV show, no right. Yeah, and you talking about your instagram to about just how we need to stand up. For the Black Trans. Community you know and I really appreciate it that and wanted to talk to you about it. Because I feel like for so long, we have wanted to in the black community. Keep white people from insisting. You know that we are more homophobic than them. You know the conversation when you talk about Homophobia in the black community you WANNA say don't just mention that we're not the reason. Prop eight etc.. Etc those things, but you know now that Black Trans Women. We know they're being killed by black men, and we know that we have so much to talk about now. What made it just so imperative for you to really WanNa be having these conversations in public masculinity has been in question since I could comprehend side so I grew up in a pentecostal church and wild. My family loves me and my people loved May Dade. Homophobia is dangerous, violent emotionally violence think it's interesting to me because.

Female Comedians Unite

"Hollywood's top comedy. Actresses are uniting in saying they are sick of being put in a box. Tiffany Haddish told the Hollywood reporter that she had to turn down multiple projects as a block comedic actress. She says she gets roles that are overtly sexual or roles that had her play a mom whose child gets hurt in some way. Way And she's fighting for justice. She mentioned this during a virtual actress roundtable. That also included Jamila Djamil Jamila said she's always given scripts to play a character who has too much sex. Robin said the writing is often so bad for comedy actresses. She's resorted to writing her own. Do you think that men and comedic roles feel the same way, or is this? Just a one sided argument. No I think you've you asked Matthew mcconaughey Hey why his career went away did it's because those were kind of the only roles that men had to get as well men who were players, men who still had roommates in their forties men? who were Douche bags? That never got out of Frat life. I think that's comedy is all about is lagging at at those things in life, but I think men do get them as well. Okay, I I was conflicted about this I I'm not a comedic actress and I actually thought the opposite I thought that women who were put in comedic roles were usually sort of the best friend role or the woman. That's like maybe made to look as unattractive. Unattractive as possible to be as funny as possible, so I didn't realize that women who were being put in comedic roles. We're supposed to be overtly sexy or things of that nature so to hear this actually quite surprised by it because I just didn't view it that way. Yeah, I think there's typecasting when it comes to a lot of actors whether it's you were maybe a nerdy role in one movie. Then a lot of people see you as oh. That's going to be the quintessential nerd. If we look at Michael Sarah or Christmas, plus like they are also typecast in their own way, so yeah, I feel like it falls on both sides, but do we feel like right Impro-? No I wouldn't ask for it to improve what I would do. is either a write my own scripts and come up and find content that is right for me as an actor or an actress or I would just pass those things up because what happens is if you pass it up. Another actress gets the job, so let's not have those roles diminish. Let's see those roles go away. Just pass them to another actress. Who's just starting her career? Everyone's not in the position, obviously to pass roles and I think you do have to maybe do roles in the beginning of your career, like for example, even just with my own career right I started on a reality show. That wasn't my end goal but I did that to get to where I was now. There was obviously no guarantee in that out, but luckily it has women who wannabe actresses, whether it's serious actresses or comedic actress, or both start their career out and have different intentions are willing to do different things than maybe they get. Get a little bit more famous, or they get a little bit more successful, but I think what you said. Aaron was very valid and I don't know if it's a comedic actress. Issue I think shirt. People just get typecast in general I think the bigger conversation I feel like when you're casting one role, you do it sell well. People tend to want you for different kinds of roles that are similar to that. Yes, yeah, exactly and like what you were saying just in like you know if you don't want those roles, let's not eliminate them. On them, and these women who are part of this roundtable seem like they're fortunate enough to be able to pass on those roles that they don't WanNa, take on I will play the funny gay friend.

Why Billy Porter says he cant be a politician

"I'm Jonathan Kaye. Part and this is Cape Up. Billy Porter has a Tony for Kinky a grammy for kinky booths an emmy for his role as prey tail in the television. Show pose even. If you didn't know any of that you probably heard about that. Black Velvet Tuxedo Gown quarter war to the Oscars in twenty nine thousand nine hundred. It was an instant station and made the popular actor and singer in instant cultural icon. We talked all about that moment and how once he was true to himself. His career really took off and we talk politics. Quarter loves to talk about politics and explained during a conversation about the groner virus why he could never be a politician. Talk in October here at all right now. Billy Porter thank you so much for coming on the PODCAST. Thanks for having me. Okay so we gotta get the big news out of the way I and that is the Matt Galle. You and vogue teamed up to do a called. Hashtag met Gal Challenge. It was people going on instagram. To recreate the fashions that have come through the red carpet. Where did this idea come from? Was it. Yours was Anna winters? Well we started at me and my team started it with my own personal social media platform and audience. And you know with all the fabulous that I am and the stuff that people know me for. I don't think people realize how political I am and how serious I am. And so in this time I wanted to give my people something to distract them. A little bit While simultaneously not having to engage myself. Because I don't really feel very fashion oriented right now. I don't feel very silly right now. Like I'm having a hard time sort of mustering energy to just be goofy and filthy. I WanNa push you on that. Because at the met gala last year was when you were brought in as I guess a Sun Goddess or Cleopatra and and it was at the Oscars in twenty nineteen when you showed up in a in a black Christian Serio Tuxedo gown and I saw the instagram post or the Social Media. It just blew up and it was such an iconic moment. Do you understand. Just how big that Oscar gown you was. Yeah I understand on paper. I understand in theory. It's a really heady experience you know because I just found a space over the fifty years of my life to kind of just stand in my truth and get zero fs to anybody or anything and really just be authentic and so much to do. That wasn't about going by world much leads to do that was. That's just what to do. And you know there are conversations that need to be had in this world and when one has a platform as I have been able to build and create especially over the last couple of years I do understand the power and the impact that something like that could have. I didn't realize how big it could be I mean it literally speak of it as like B. O. A. O. In terms of my life before Oscar after Oscar like my life is completely different. And that's why I was pushing you on this idea you. You're saying you didn't feel like being silly. And yet before Oscar after Oscar is a great way to put it because when you strode across the red carpet in that Black Velvet Tuxedo gown. It was a thunder clap for a whole lot of communities. You told our friend or mutual. Good friend Tamarin on her show you said you spend a lot of your life quote unquote in the masculinity game. Talk about that what are you what did you mean by that when you said well you know from the moment. I could comprehend thoughts. My masculinity was in question and in our culture and our society masculinity as at the top of the food chain and if you're not masculine enough you're dismissed. I was sent to a psychologist when I was five years old in kindergarten after every Wednesday at school to talk to somebody because my family thought I was too much of it so from the minute I could literally comprehend thought the messaging I received was. There's something wrong with you. And it's based on how you behave and that needs to be fixed so I live my whole life in that. And then you know. Get into business and it's amplified one hundred times more You know and I spent the first half of my life and my career in that masculinity game trying to be masculine enough so that I can eat so that I could get a job so I could get paid so I can eat. There came a time in my late thirties. Early Forties late thirties. I would say mid to late thirty where I just got sick And I- extracted myself from that part of the toxicity of what it can mean and leaned in to all the things that I was told would be my liability all of the things that I lived as a liability. They weren't wrong. They the people were not wrong. You know I took every hit that I could take not being masculine enough. I took them all it then. I decided that I didn't

"John Travolta sent her name wrong, and she became a household name overnight, and I thought I need an Oscar. Moment I need somebody to say my name wrong. Authors I literally said that out loud. When IT HAPPENED 'CAUSE! I knew when it happened. What was going to happen to her? You know because the Oscars is our. Super Bowl and as a businessman, I understood that. Once again as It was intentional I got called names. Like what am I going to wear? What am I going to wear and I was my first fashion. First Time at Fashion Week. And I walked into a crystal Siri on our show, and I remembered. How inclusive! He naturally has always been and for people who don't know who aren't familiar with Kristen Cyrano. He is one of the first designers first mainstream huge designers to actually expand the sizing his clothes to be willing to dress bigger actresses and actors, and to be inclusive on the runway, and in his sizing for people to buy and when he did it something that the rest of the fashion industry has been too afraid to do. He tripled his income in the first year. So that's Christian. Cyrano who really believes in change and has such diverse runway. and. Of knowing. The pushback that we had already been receiving. From designers who were who thought that they could decide or me Well we were asking for masculine and feminine close to be sent over, and they would not send feminine in anything. It isn't just not send it I'm not asking you to names, but is there anyone who's dressing now? Who wouldn't dress you back? Then the way you wanted to be dressed no. So have you those off? You just didn't go. I just didn't. We just haven't got back? It was just it's okay, but I get to choose that and so being that Christian Syria no-show having gotten a telephone call remembering.

Right I am human being and I looked like that. That's what it looks like. and. That's when everything changed for me because I took myself out of. Where I was headed. and shifted MAPO caps. And it took me a long time, but Hoses where I always wanted to be. Pose a manifestation of making that change in that shift all the way back in nineteen, ninety four so.

"After all if that. You Know my art. Sort of. Supplanted Any. Kind of Breakdown or issue that would come from that I could always. Just go to my art. I was lucky. You Know my art has always been. A gift whether it was my voice initially singing. Sedan. Dancing then go into drama old, then writing then directing. Of the thirty year career that I've had. A I've always been able to. Put it all in my work. And I mean this industry is imperfect in so many ways and representation has been fucking dismal until now but. But I do also know that of all of the industries you could have entered. That was probably the safest one for the fact that there was so many people who were from different walks of life, and in particular different sexualities within the industry. Would you have said about the? I would say that. The Arts masquerades. As being. Inclusive. The people inside of the industry. Are Very inclusive. Generally. You know, but they have to answer. To the bottom line. In the bottom line. Has Not always been inclusive. So. Yes. And No, well. It's yeah, it's it's. It's a funny one with the bottom line because I really feel like we've just seen it proven again and again and again, and again that it was just that they were too afraid to take the risk of what would happen if you show reality on a TV screen if you show people with disabilities, or you show people of different races, and if you make. You leader. We saw it with bridesmaids. The first time we made a film like that. It was a smashing success. Same thing with crazy agents. Black Panther Mos-. You just new name it and every time we have just slightly broken that barrier and try to show something more realistic and more representative of the whole world around us. It is roaring success, and then afterwards you see a million copies of the same thing come out. Bottom line is has been predicted by a bunch of idiots. Yeah, and who people who are afraid to try, and they jump straight on the bandwagon. It's not like they're so hateful. Even that once they've seen it works. They won't make the same follow where the money goes. They just took a chance on us. That's what I say. Yeah, all based on the bottom line the show. You can be anything you want. If you're making money, you can do anything you want. So, what was your solace in your twenties when you were struggling?

Not only is there meet. Delicious also has a higher nutritional value because their animals are one hundred percent pasture raised. Her right they're not living in a cage. They're not being force fed grain unlike factory farming which is destroying our planet grassroots co op is fighting the effects of climate change by practicing regenerative agriculture. Taken it back to Mother Nature getting the chemicals out of farming getting the industry out of farming also. They support local formers grassroots. Farmers Cooperative are the farmers and butchers. There's no middleman. So they can have the highest standards across the board and offer you complete transparency. You can trace your meat from pasture to plate. You can even go visit the farms in person. It's incredible no. Subscriptions are necessary. You order what you want when you want at peak freshness.

It was not mind it was my third but now you done before that I was in the original cast of Miss Saigon And then I did. The original cast of five guys named Mile and that I came over to Greece. Okay good so we had a lot of fun. It was fun. Billy played the team Jon. He likes stopped the show every night. You imagine yeah crazy crazy. Production of grease type it into Youtube. You'll see psychedelic it was like yeah neon green the. I if I if I may I think that the director the producers were super high every night when they were deciding what to do. I don't think that's much of a secret. No no they were high when they put this concept together. They you have got to come up with that. I when you were already by thank you darling. I played Marty. And that's her son but when we recorded the cast album I remember. You came racing in 'cause you had this great you know you're sung stopped the show every night and you came bursting into the recording session. Because then when when you record a Broadway show soundtrack. I'm you know original cast album You do it with the full orchestra. Live so you along with the orchestra just as you would on stage every night and it's all live and you only get one or two takes so you kind of want it to be good so billy was concerned that his the old voce wasn't going to cooperate day and remember.
