Pose star Billy Porter created history at the 2019 Emmy Awards by being the first openly gay black man to win the trophy in the Lead Actor in a Drama category.

He beat out Jason Bateman (Ozark), Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us), Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), and Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us).
"The category is love. I am so overwhelmed and I am so overjoyed to have lived long enough to see this day," Porter said as he danced his way to the stage to accept the award, and rejoiced the moment by stretching out his arms.
Porter concluded with passionate plea.
"We as the artists are the people that can change the molecular structure of the hearts and minds of the people who live on this planet. Please don't ever stop doing that. Please don't ever stop telling the truth," he said.
