Carl Clemons-Hopkins became the first non-binary person to be nominated for best supporting actor at the 73rd Emmy Awards on Sunday. Here is what we have to look forward to that will be coming soon to our flatscreen. While AOC got all the attention for her “tax the rich” outfit compliments of Chick fil-A, a grander vision was with this fine fellow.
To celebrate, the “Hacks” actor walked the red carpet in a custom Christian Siriano outfit inspired by the non-binary flag, according to the designer. The actor’s white button-down shirt, black trousers, purple belt, and purple and yellow train featured the colors of the flag.
The outfit was created as “an homage to the non-binary flag and celebrating our identities and beauty beyond the heteronormative standard,” Clemons-Hopkins’ stylist, Jyotisha Bridges, wrote in an Instagram post on Sunday.
The star reflected on how they came to identify as non-binary in an essay penned for The Hollywood Reporter in July, writing that they began to identify as queer in college before exploring gender norms during lockdown.
“In the past five or six years, I’ve been doing a lot of studies on the origins of masculinity, where all these rules and norms came from. At the same time, there’s been so much violence and misunderstanding with trans folk and other queer people,” Clemons-Hopkins wrote.
Makes Mustang’s post yesterday seem tame regarding our culture.
Just noting that the swamp is devastating our culture and desensitizing us.
