”It is about the systems of oppression and erasure of people of color who contribute to the culture,“ ”Pose“ alum tells Stephen Colbert
“In a dress,” Porter noted.
He continued: “And so, the conversation is actually deeper than that. It is about the systems of oppression and erasure of people of color who contribute to the culture. Now, that’s a lot to unpack, I’m willing to unpack it, sans the dragging and cancel culture of the internet, because I do not now, nor will I ever, adjudicate my life in sound– or humanity — in sound bites on social media. So when you’re ready to have the real conversation, call a bitch, OK? I’m ready to have it. And I’m sorry, Harry! I didn’t mean no harm. I’m a gay man, we like Harry! He’s cute!”
When Colbert asked if Porter was shocked by the level of interest in his comments about Vogue’s decision to pick the singer as its first male cover star, Porter said: “I am surprised, because there are so many other things that are important on this earth to be talking about. It’s just weird.”
