With ‘Pose’ as a potent springboard, Dyllón Burnside is now flying and sky truly is the limit.
The 32-year-old rose to prominence in the role of Ricky Evangelista on the groundbreaking ballroom series. Across the show’s three seasons, he shone as a character that – much like ‘Pose’ at large – defined layered and served as a mirror to the marginalized.
Having waved goodbye to the FX show, Burnside has marched forward with his career by starring in ‘American Horror Story,’ blazing Broadway in ‘Thoughts of a Colored Man,’ and amplifying his musical output. The latter is of particular focus and has seen the multi-hyphenate talent team with Daley for his new single ‘Heaven.’
That Grape Juice‘s Chet Kincaid sat down with Burnside, who opened up about his journey, latest projects, LGBTQ representation, and much more.
