Billy Porter Shares Kiss with Husband Adam Smith While Receiving Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Billy Porter now has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!

The 53-year-old Emmy and Tony-winning actor received the special honor during a ceremony on Thursday (December 1) in Hollywood.

Billy was joined by his husband Adam Smith and more friends while celebrating the special occasion.

“I’m grateful to have lived long enough to see the day that my queerness is no longer my liability, but now is my greatest superpower,” Billy said during his speech (via ABC7). “I’m grateful to stand in front of the world as an out, loud and proud representation of what being Black, queer and HIV positive looks like in 2022.”

He added, “You know I heard a lot of things in my life: ‘You’re too Black, you’re too gay, too loud, too extra, try to be quieter, try fitting in, butch it up, dim your light, stop making everyone feel so uncomfortable around you.’ I tried to do all of those things, I really tried hard, but thank God I couldn’t.”

Congrats Billy!
