Billy Porter builds on his resurging career with new tour and album RICH LOPEZ | Staff firstname.lastname@example.org On Saturday, April 29, Billy Porter kicks off six weeks of his first-ever tour in support of his newest album, Black Mona Lisa.
He will visit 25 U.S. cities on this tour, stopping in Dallas on May 10 to perform at the Winspear. This tour is the latest in the actor/singer’s amazing renaissance over the past few years — from Broadway to red carpets and Emmys and now his newest pop album and first time tour.
Porter’s recent firsts are many: He made his directorial debut in 2022 with the Amazon Prime movie Anything’s Possible. In 2021 he became the first queer Black man to win the 2019 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, getting the trophy for his role as Pray Tell in the groundbreaking series Pose.
And also in 2021, he was the first genderless fairy godparent, starring as Fab G in Amazon’s Cinderella with Camila Cabello.
