Billy Porter Apologizes to Harry Styles For Vogue Dress Remarks

“I feel like the fashion industry has accepted me because they have to. I’m not necessarily convinced and here is why,” the actor said to the outlet. “I created the conversation [about non-binary fashion] and yet Vogue still put Harry Styles, a straight white man, in a dress on their cover for the first time.”

Noting that the musician himself wasn’t the issue, Billy added, “I’m not dragging Harry Styles, but he is the one you’re going to try and use to represent this new conversation? He doesn’t care, he’s just doing it because it’s the thing to do. This is politics for me. This is my life. I had to fight my entire life to get to the place where I could wear a dress to the Oscars and not be gunned now. All he has to do is be white and straight.”
