BX stand up! This borough is really winning right now, between Cardi B echoing her high praises for the area. Now, we have Emmy winner Jharrell Jerome from “When They See Us”. You might also know him from the Oscar-winning picture “Moonlight”.  The twenty-one-year-old actor is the youngest to win in the category’s history and the first Afro-Latino as well. 

Billy Porter proved that you can live out loud and proud! He quoted James Baldwin when he accepted his award. His win should speak to all the little brown boys that things will be hard, but you can still be yourself and accepted. Too many brown boys have killed themselves for lack of acceptance for being flamboyant. Porter is on one of the most successful prime time shows.  So, dream big because anything is possible!
