Trump-Hating Actor Wears ‘Tuxedo Gown’ on Oscars Red Carpet to ‘Resist Trump’ (VIDEO)
Trump-hating actor Billy Porter wore a ‘tuxedo-gown’ on the Oscars red carpet Sunday evening.
Billy Porter, a Broadway performer and ‘gender-fluid artist’ arrived to the Oscars Sunday afternoon in a velvet ensemble designed by Christian Siriano.
Billy Porter recently began wearing dresses to “resist” the Trump White House, according to his stylist.
Billy Porter’s stylist Sam Ratelle told Page Six last month he doesn’t want to just look fabulous on the red carpet, he wants to use the red carpet as a platform for his activism.
“Like when he [Billy Porter] started wearing dresses recently, that was very specific because of all the stuff that was going on in the White House regarding transgender rights. We started talking about it and we’re like, we have to start representing these people because you have to normalize that somehow publicly. There has to be visibility,” Ratelle said.
So there ya have it, Billy Porter wore a tuxedo-gown on the red carpet to “resist” Trump.
