Throughout the interview, the trio talks all about the current COVID-19 pandemic and how they’re handling it, with Porter giving some insight into what his days have been like with the stay-at-home orders these past couple months. After getting the required coronavirus talk out of the way, Billy goes on to discuss issues he has encountered during his time in Hollywood–both first and second hand–which includes problems that aren’t so widely discussed, like ageism.
Following that, the Pose star gets into a conversation about what it means to be masculine, why he’s gotten so into the eyewear game in recent years, his new song remake “For What It’s Worth,” and so much more. Billy also talks to the Bodega Boys about the 2020 election and how that might look with everything that is going on right now.
