Billy Porter

Actor Billy Porter sparked praise and outrage when he wore a black crushed velvet tuxedo gown designed by Christian Siriano to the 2019 Oscar Awards in Hollywood on Sunday. Twitter users were in a frenzy, expressing praise and admiration for the openly homosexual actor who stars in "Pose" on FX Network.

Billy Porter

Vogue magazine explained:

"The custom creation by designer Christian Siriano included a sharply tailored tuxedo jacket overtop a full-skirted strapless velvet gown. A play on masculinity and femininity, the look challenged the rigid Hollywood dress code and was boundary-pushing in all the right ways."

Billy Porter

Porter was accompanied to the Oscars by his life partner Adam Porter-Smith.

"What is masculinity?" Porter said in an interview with Vogue on the red carpet. "What does that mean? Women show up every day in pants, but the minute a man wears a dress, the seas part.”

Interestingly, women of all races and ethnicity were highly supportive and overjoyed at the sight of a Black man in a dress on one of the biggest nights in television. Porter and his tuxedo gown trended most of the night on Twitter.com.

Thousands of women wondered where they could purchase a similar outfit. But the fallout among Black men was just as intense.

Many Black men took to social media to voice their outrage over what they perceive as the left's ongoing campaign to emasculate Black men via the media.

One Vladtv.com reader

Another reader wrote, "This rise of the beta male shit is a ploy. Looks like a new wave to remove strong Blk male role models from the picture. It never ends. Always something with these mfers."

A female reader - a rarity on Vladtv.com - wrote: "Someone will blame black women for this."

Question: What do you think of Billy Porter wearing a dress to the Oscars? Would you mind seeing your man wearing a similar outfit to work? Is this the new direction for men's fashion?

    Folks will get over it, if they don’t oh well. The way we dress is a social construct. The man isn’t claiming he’s a female. Pants are a fairly new accepted masculine article of clothing in the western world.

  • Coy little wink

    He stunted on them Oscar hoes...

  • Phillybruh

    Not my thing, but he looked nice.

  • Youcan’tbanmesucka

    Black Panther and Killmonger should have knocked him the f out!! Wankanda mf'er!

    It's was surprisingly different, that's for sure. Has this ever been done before? I only happened to see THIS while scrolling through IG last night.

  • Kbellaluvvs

    I've never seen Pose so I didn't know who he was? I honestly thought it was a straight man the way everyone made a big deal out of it...

  • Yoni7

    He and his partner look HIGH ASF!

  • Yoni7

    Folks will get over it,

    Exactly. I'll give it til Tuesday night/Wednesday.

    Few things. That is not his partner. That is his legal husband. They on purpose got married in a hurry after being off and on for almost a decade...before Trump got sworn in. Said they wanted to do it before his hateful against the gays ass got in there.

    What do you think of Billy Porter wearing a dress to the Oscars?: I think its HIS biz. I ALSO think he rocked the purity SHAT outta that frock.

    Thats all.... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/97a5f129b0cd22512413f248998fe2d1f33e0690666314302b9bfb3b27c563eb.gif

    Well let me start off by saying first of all it takes Mother and Father Energy to create balance but metaphysically speaking we are all Energy Light Beings with Melanin some with less than others , But this is not balance this is a agenda to emascilate the black male .I don't even look at people as humans anymore I jus read Energy , and I am reading that this is jus a demonstration of no self love and jus a distraction and projective programing Subliminally ....Love and Light

  • Renee26

    Dear Black Men all over the world who were bothered by this man's outfit,

    Y'all are all insecure and need to mind your business. What the next person choses to wear is none of your concern.

    Bryan Tyree Henry... This was a bit off-putting at first but then I got it. I get it. He's in "costume" and their skit was sort of funny.

    In other words. Meh, don't care ultimately. Billy looks fabulous (the intent). Bryan looks a fool (but that was also, the intent).

  • Yoni7

    THAT looks more on the Andre' Leon Talley steez. That dress from last night, is something else.

    He is the SHAT. I like him alot. He made his NAME on Broadway in a dress. Why is it so abhorent that he wore one to the Oscars? Folks must NOT know what the production KINKY BOOTS is even about?

  • Yoni7

    THIS get up looks more costume-y, given HIS theater background.

  • The Chosen 1.

    WTF is that.

  • Topic Influencer

    Its the Oscars. Go big or go home (esp if you gonna wear a dress lol) Im sure was his thought.

  • iWasteTime

    There are a list of things I'm not here for, with regard to Black men but I mind my business. "They" should do the same.
    Based on the character he plays, he ABSOLUTELY is in the right 'fit for the awards.
    I wish they'd be this vocal about other ish ...

  • Kanyade

    "given HIS theater background"

    Yeah. Like I said at first I was like huhhhhhhhhhhhhh and then I was like ohhhhh okay. I just hate that I was reminded of Aunt Jemima with his hoop skirt. LOL

    What he wore last night is similar to what men historically wore in pre-19th century America and abroad. They wore ruffled shirts, kitten heels, stockings, long coats with knickers, WIGS (lol), etc.

  • Yoni7

    Leave his hoop skirt out of this. LOL

  • Kanyade

    One thing about the internet, you can be any and everything you wanna be, truth or not.

  • Phillybruh

    Gay black men are no more interested in or capable of settling down than their heterosexual counterpart. It does happen my partner and I are both black, but its difficult. I have a friend who only wanted to date black men hated the idea of interracial dating. Until he couldn't find a suitable person settle down with.

    I don't know why there is outrage, he is a flamboyant GAY man. If your man is straight, then you don't have to worry about him in this outfit because a straight man would not wear this. I love him on 'Pose' and he is wearing this tuxedo gown. I don't know who else could have pulled it off.

    I saw this comment this morning..."And the Emasculation of the black male continues. If you find African American men embarrassing themselves in a dress for money while they set a bad example for our youth and compromise morals and values as humorous, then you are just as much at fault as they are. And you have been brainwashed as well. The people who control the movie and television industry have discovered that they can damage a culture by damaging the images, role models and examples within that culture.

    Ok so.....there's this spot my fiancé and I frequent and they changed their menu (which damn near gave me a heart attack). The new menu (revealed on Feb 4) had A LOT of my faves removed, but I noticed that they revamped my fave burger on the menu (The Sexy Burger", which I used to get on grilled chicken) to "The Beyond Sexy Burger", so I tried it and fell in LOVE! What's on the burger, a slice of pineapple, cream cheese, banana peppers, and this conjured up sauce they have AND GUURRLLLLL! GOOD LAWD! When I tried the Beyond Sexy, I added cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and fresh onions (I don't do mayo) and it was the ish!! It may have tasted like chicken to me subconsciously, idk! Lol!

    Okay. I've got it. TY. I do have another question, if you don't mind... how are intimacy preferences discussed in gay relationships? Does it mirror heterosexual discussions? Do this chile, turn over chile, hold it right there, chile, let's try this, please.... #FunnyNotFunny Please accept my sincere apology if you deem this inappropriate.

  • LaGrl562

    No he did not I had to look for the picture and I watched all of the show last night. If they were so proud about "this' why didn't he keep it in during the entire evening? ABC was like not here for the foolishness

  • YES I SAID IT…

    I really don't care but I will say this, Black men are supposed to be strong and powerful like Kings, not dress like women and prance around. One thing I do know is, that if U are g*y live your truth BUT stop downplaying your Masculinity by allowing today's society to feminize YOU and the black male race.

  • Phillybruh

    That truly depends on what you like. Those roles are usually defined before it gets intimate. I've known tops who are more docile and bottoms who are more assertive. It really hard to gauge whose who in a relationship unless they tell you. You have some who adhere to those heterosexual norms and the top( breadwinner) bottom( homemaker). But what a person likes and wants is discussed pretty early.

  • Coy little wink

    I'm NOT here for all the sagging pants I see on hetero men on a daily basis so I seriously can't be mad at this guy for wearing a tuxedo gown...

    I mean really how was he going to sit in that or go to the bathroom. It was for the red carpet.

I see he took the shirt attachment off to unveil a pearl necklace ?

  • wonderwoman

    He did it for the attention he so desperately needs. He looks a hot a$$ mess. Naomi would have slayed this outfit. This is for a tall women(Allison Janey, Kendall Jenner, hell ever the Hadid sister)just not him.

  • Bonita

    If you're going to be a gay Black man . . . fine, but why all the theatrical cartoon behaviour? That over the top, dehydrated for attention behaviour is part of what makes a lot of heterosexuals frown upon that lifestyle. That isht is embarrassing and annoying.

    The emasculation of men.....especially black men. Good for them getting mad this is getting out of hand. Now I understand what Dave Chapele was trying to say. Hollywood has this weird fascination of making a mockery of black people.

  • Victorious82

    Cuz they know their men have homosexual tendencies by nature. Black men aren’t born to be that way. Yt has tried to breed that into our men since slavery.

So am not going to try and shame him for being honest in who he is.

  • Evillene

    It's only the absence of actual power that make black men, and women, so concerned about black male masculinity. If straight black men where doing what we know they can do, and being Kings, no one would bat an eye at one black dude in a dress.

  • PlayerP

    Wwwwwoooooooowww...off my game. He did say it first! Totally forgot...on one of my all time favorites.

  • PlayerP

    It being dry might have been a good thing. How did you find it's texture? The first time I had it, it was too mushy to me. I preferred it on the drier side.
    It's really not good for you either. Soy and vital wheat gluten are the main two ingredients. The "heme" that gives it the "meat like" hue/flavor is synthesized from soy.
    If you don't mind soy, you should try GimmeLean if you haven't already.

    If seeing a man in a ballgown is a threat to your masculinity, your masculinity is unstable and fragile AF. And that has nothing to do with Billy Porter or his big ass ballgown.

    I wish all the black PEOPLE* up in arms over this man’s right to exist and express himself knew just how much they sound like racist white folks complaining about black folks. Got the same complaints and vitriol about gay folks that racist white folks got about you and you don’t see any of the irony or the self hate in it.

    Either tell racist white folks they make a good point about you and keep up the hate, or stop being a hateful hypocrite.

    Also, if you are a man who doesn’t like men in gowns, don’t wear a GD gown. Problem solved.

    i agree

  • Disgustd

    I agree to a point..but who runs hollyweird and deliberately puts out this kind of imagery of black people that is exported globally? This picture will show up 8000 miles in another country as representative of black manhood. This is not just about individuals, it's about group dynamics. Who really controls the black narrative? Blacks or jew-ish run hollyweird, mainstream media & the music industry? Let's be real about it.

  • Disgustd

    We never got true freedom. All the tactics and dynamics that existed on the physical plantation are still in play today on the neo-plantation that is now open air and now equipped with the same kind of invisible fence that they make for dogs. Go beyond the approved parameters of the plantation and watch what happens...ie. go to certain white neighborhoods (even if you pay rent/mortgage there) and see what happens...

Our house budget is $999,892.99.".....She said there were two yts in the nail shop watching househunters and the bish gone say....."Isn't it funny how they will have a job like catching butterflies and the husband makes snow angels in the grass and their house budget is like 3mil." as if it was HER joke.
