Legendary multi-hyphenated entertainer Billy Porter has been in show business for three decades and is now enjoying the height of his career with starring roles on hit television shows, critically-acclaimed Broadway performances, iconic status among the millennial generation and a highly-lauded return to music by fans and peers. This week, Porter revealed a troubling chapter of his life as a survivor of sexual abuse at the hands of his stepfather in a recent Out magazine op-ed that has circulated around the internet rapidly.
Despite the darkness he lived through his youth, Billy’s life as a seasoned entertainer sees the talent living his best life, especially with two great TV roles that is highly-buzzed about in the entertainment industry and the LGBTQ community in “American Horror Story” and “Pose.”
Porter talked about his current chapter of entertainment with TV talk show host Wendy Williams earlier — as well as some juicy details about his marriage of two years to Adam Smith. Porter and Smith, who joined their last names as married couple Porter-Smith, were once in a relationship before being separated for five years and then married after a 16-day engagement in case same-sex marriages were going to be overturned by U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration.
