‘It doesn’t feel good to me’: Billy Porter slams Harry Styles and editor Anna Wintour’s Vogue cover

‘Pose’ star Billy Porter had a few apt words for Anna Wintour and Harry Styles, who made history as the first solo man to pose in a dress on the cover of Vogue. In a recent interview with The TelegraphPorter said he felt Styles only landed on the December 2020 cover because he’s “white and straight.”

“It doesn’t feel good to me. You use my community – or your people use my community – to improve yourself. You didn’t have to sacrifice anything,” he lamented about Styles’ gendered fashion sense. which was hailed as both groundbreaking and bold. Porter went on to say that he met with Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour for an interview just months before the cover was revealed. “This bitch ended up saying to me, ‘How can we do better?’ And I was so surprised that I didn’t say what I should have said,” he recalls. Porter added that he wished he’d told Wintour, “Use your power as Vogue to raise the voices of the leaders of this de-gendering movement in fashion.”

All in all, Porter said his disappointment was with the magazine’s decision and not with Styles specifically: “It’s not Harry Styles’ fault that he happens to be white, cute and straight and so fits into the infrastructure… I’m calling the gatekeepers .” .”
