Fashion designer and television host Hassan Sheheryar Yasin (HSY) recently took to his Instagram to share pictures with his famous celebrity friend, actor Billy Porter.
Sharing a picture of the two embracing, as well as other pictures of Porter with various other friends and family, HSY wrote, “Billy! Where do I begin? Not only is he one of the finest actor/singer/performer there is, he has a heart of gold and an energy that just lifts you up.”
He added, “I’m proud to call him my friend. He is truly an inspirational trailblazer. Winner of a Tony, Emmy and Grammy, he won all our hearts with his love. Wishing you the greatest success always, Billy!”
Supermodel Mehreen Syed took to the comments to post a series of heart emojis to show her love, while makeup artist Bina Khan wrote in reference to Porter, “[Oh my God] I adore him!”
Porter could be seen dressed in his signature gender-fluid clothing, wearing a white coat and skirt combo. The American actor, author and singer is known for his work in the TV series Pose, American Horror Story, as well as the 2021 Amazon Original film Cinderella, in which Porter plays the role of the iconic Fairy Godmother.
The EGOT-winner recently made headlines after he broke his 14-year silence on his HIV-positive diagnosis. “It’s time to grow up and move on because shame is destructive — and if not dealt with, it can destroy everything in its path,” he shared in an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
