The Category Is: Fashion Gumby Butterfly Realness. 🦋 Today’s @criticschoice custom @hoganmclaughlin look styled by @sammyratelle is inspired by the free-spiritedness of David Bowie and the 1970’s disco era – my all-time favorite. The hand-painted butterfly tattoos by @heyannabee continue my theme for 2020, which is being released from the bondage of masculinity and flying free. Just like the beautiful ladies from @poseonfx, we are often born into one stage of life and then cocoon into an incubation of self-discovery, transformation, and acceptance, ultimately being released into freedom as beautiful creatures.

This is actor Billy Porter, and he likes to put on dresses and do feminine things to which I say, “whatever floats your boat, dude.” Any normal day, I would have left it there but the problem this is that any time Porter puts on a dress, the media immediately launches into action and begins hitting me and everyone else with the same tired topic of “the definition of masculinity.”
