LGBT Actor, Singer, Broadway Legend and Red Carpet Pioneer, Billy Porter is the new Ambassador for PayPal’s Giving Tuesday and Giving Better Campaigns.
The initiatives which started in 2012 have grown into global generosity movements that are powering people and organizations to transform their communities. The “Pose” star opened up about his decision to partner with PayPal in a recent interview, saying “Being a person who grew up in the church, one of the things I learned first was that giving was the only way to live.”
Porter went on to say, “I’m excited to get that message out to the world in this time in which we seem so divided. It’s about us coming together, giving, and paying it forward to make this world a better place.”
Whether Porter is playing grandfather to all the legendary children who compete in Balls on Pose or creating a better world for the kids to come with his indomitable drive for philanthropy, Porter serves as a role model to our community and the world.
