Had to google him.

See he played Lola in Kinky Boots musical. Never see the musical but I loved the movie.

Waiting for the day that nobody cares when someone shares their HIV status.

I've seen some of his work and the news brought tears to my eyes.

Visibility matters, so I'm happy he was brave enough to share his status. He's received tons of support from fans and his fellow actors.
