‘Pose’ actor Angel Bismark Curiel has melted the hearts of millions in his role as Papi and now is doing the same as himself in the new issue of Behind The Blinds Magazine.
Styling and profiling, the star appears in support of the final season of the FX series.
Beyond posing it up in the Nino Munoz lensed shoot, he also opens up about the impact of the show and more.
Full story below…
On Pose’s Importance:
“The show centers on black and brown people, and we are the heroes of our own stories. I love the fact that in Pose you get to see black trans women shine, in a society that deems them unworthy. I understood over time that being part of a show telling a love story between a cis dude and a black trans woman was in fact radical and revolutionary.”
“Anything you don’t understand, you’re fearful of. Individuals need the right education on gender and sexuality, in order to understand trans people. There is obviously no excuse being transphobic or homophobic today, regardless of how knowledgeable you may be.”
On His Co-Stars Being Like Family:
“Everyone welcomed me with open arms and I felt at ease almost instantly. We were playing a family, which means we spent a lot of time getting to know each other on set. It was deep and intimate. I think we were just open and willing to give everything we had.”
