Billy Porter on hosting “Sesame Street” and impact of tuxedo dress: “Friendship, kindness and inclusivity shall triumph”

View this post on Instagram

One of the highlights of my life has been the opportunity to sing on the set of @sesamestreet with my new pal, Penelope the penguin. Together, we sang about the possibilities of new friendships with those who may not be exactly like us. I know people are all up in arms about me wearing the gorgeous custom @csiriano tuxedo dress that I wore at @theacademy awards in 2019 for the upcoming season. If you follow me, however, you know the impact it had. The emails, DMs, and messages of good will I received that day (and continue to receive) from parents and their children who have been bullied all over the world and desperately need to see someone like me, being their authentic selves on mainstream media, is far more important to than anything #onemillionmoms could ever say. Friendship, kindness and inclusivity shall triumph. And sometimes, it simply starts by saying hi. #sesamestreet #season51 . . Wearing custom @csiriano Styling by @sammyratelle
