Billy Porter delivered a powerful message at the 2019 #TonyAwards, rocking a custom-made gown crafted from the stage curtain of “Kinky Boots” that included a subtle yet striking nod to women’s rights. Porter, who rocked instantly iconic looks at the Golden Globes, the Oscars and the Met Gala earlier this year, said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that the train of the gown features a subtle pattern in the shape of uterus: “I thought it was awesome because women’s rights are under attack right now. I’m an advocate for all who are disenfranchised,” he said. “None of us are free until we’re all free!” // 📸: Getty Images

At first glance I said no, too busy. Then I read why and it changed my view of it. He's awesome

That outfit is absolutely hideous. Don’t know what he is trying to prove with these outlandish outfits other than he is a drag queen. There is nothing stunning about this outfit...on a man or a woman
