Dance. Vogue. Walk. POSE Bish!

NYC’s Ball Scene was brought to the 2019 EMMY Awards as the cast of the hit series “POSE” worked their way down the carpet inside the Microsoft Theater to let the world know: They aren’t going anywhere. Ok?

Lead star/Broadway actor Billy Porter loves making a dramatic entrance when he hits the red carpet. The ball judge totally served up a fashion moment. The “POSE” star worked the carpet in a sparkling Michael Kors couture suit topped with a Stephen Jones Millinery hat and “a Rick Owens platform situation” on his feet.

The 49-year-old actor is the first openly gay black man to receive an Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series category.

“All of my dreams are coming true right now,” he said on the red carpet. “I’m grateful that I’ve lived long enough to see the day where I can stand inside of my authenticity and have it be perceived this way. It’s gorgeous and it’s a blessing.”

THE MOMENT HAS ARRIVED HUNTIES! #ad With my @KetelOne_US martini in hand, taking a moment to reflect on dreaming the impossible and making it a reality. Growing up, there was never representation of someone who looked like me… So to live in my truth, be loved for being who I am and standing proud as the first openly gay, black man to walk the #EmmyAwards red carpet as a Lead Actor Drama nominee… Y’all just don’t know what this moment means to me. Here’s to celebrating 50 years of life, 30 years of hard work and learning to embrace the JOY! This isn’t for me… It’s for US! Now let’s go shut this thing down ya’ll!

"POSE" star MJ Rodriguez said she wanted to POP on the red carpet and that's exactly what she did in this custom Jason Wu gown. Gorge. On the capet, she talked being able to help others in the LGBTQ community and how the show changed her life.

PUSH THROUGH!

Break out "POSE" star Indya Moore was a vision in white, slaying this custom Louis Vuitton gown that featured a corset and super high slits. UGH. She's fierce.

The 24-year-old - who just rocked the cover of ELLE earlier this year - opened up about the importance of transgender representation in fashion & entertainment. Check it below:

 

Indya - who is of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent - chopped it up with Remezcla about indentifying as Afro-Taino. On the red carpet, they (preferred pronoun) explained what the term means and how it feels being in this community.

“I think we definitely need to come to a place where the African diaspora needs to understand that the African diaspora is the African diaspora,” they said. “Black Latinos don’t necessarily have the same experience as Latinos who are not Black. I, personally, do not identify as Latino because Latino means Latin and Latin, it means white. And I’m not white, so I just call myself Afro-Taíno ’cause that’s what I am.”

*applause*

They continued:

“When I watch Telemundo, yes, I’m here for Spanish content,” they said. “But I just see only white Spanish people on Telemundo. I don’t really see Black Hispanic people because Black people are also Hispanic. I think Intersectional inclusivity is important because inclusivity affirms that you belong, and I think that’s something we should be pushing for in the media that we create, in all forms. For Afro-Taínos, for everybody. Everybody that’s marginalized.”

Beautiful and WOKE.

"POSE starlet" Dominique Jackson served up golden goddess vibes in a custom Jeffrey Dodd gown with a cape and custom Stuart Weitzman heels. She snapped a cute video with her co-stars in the audience:

LGBTQ activist Janet Mock - the series' writer, director, and producer - became the the first black trans producer to ever be nominated in the Outstanding Drama Series category. And sis looked amazing, per usual, for her big night. She hit the carpet in Valentino haute couture.

Janet's boyfriend Angel Curiel came out to show support.

FX's "POSE" made history with a groundbreaking six Emmy nominations (yes, six) in several categories, including Outstanding Drama Series. Congrats!
