Pose star Billy Porter was 'panicked' about Pray Tell's love scene


Billy Porter initially panicked over his character's sex scene in Pose with Ricky (Dyllon Burnside):

“I’m not used to people seeing me as a leading man, I’m not used to people seeing me as a romantic lead in anything,” says Porter. “You have to have a certain kind of confidence. I had to get that confidence quick so I could tell the story.”

“We get a lot of airtime as African-American men killing each other. We get a lot of stories about that,” he says. “But we get very few where we see black men trying to figure out how to love each other. And that is really thrilling.”
