Published: Sunday 23rd May 2021 by Sam

This week saw Billy Porter bravely share that he has been living with HIV for fourteen years.

After initially opening up in THR, the Emmy winner sat down for a compelling interview on the ‘Tamron Hall Show.’

In newly released instalments of the candid conversation, the ‘Pose’ actor shocks with the revelation that he was sent to a psychologist as a child because people felt he was a “sissy” and were “afraid” of him.

He expounds on his relationship with his mother and reveals that he only told her about his diagnosis less than two months ago.

Frequently tearing up, the 51-year-old star expressed that the striking parallels between his ‘Pose’ character Pray Tell‘s experience and his is a testament to him being a vessel.

Looking forward, he opened up about exciting projects on the horizon too.

Watch below…

Continued kudos to Billy for his bravery.
