Billy Porter says 'Pose' changing gay black men roles for better


Washington D.C. , Aug 15 : American theatre performer-singer, Billy Porter, who recently got his first-ever Emmy nomination for 'Pose', opened up about how Hollywood is allowing African-American men to make love, not war.

The 'Pose' star on Tuesday said that roles for black gay men are changing fast.

"You get used to being [cast as] the funny friend. You get used to the industry cutting your d-k off because you're a queen," Page Six quoted Porter as saying.

"When we have these moments where we can create a space that shows African-American men trying to figure out how to love each other as opposed to how to kill each other," Porter added.

"I am so grateful to be a part of what I see as the change," he said.
