Editors’ Notes “My hope for the immediate future is that we can use this global reset to understand truly, and once and for all, that we're all the same,” Billy Porter tells Apple Music about the current pandemic. “It's simply about honoring each other's humanity and loving each other because of our differences.” In his powerful interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music's At Home With series, the theater performer, singer, and actor opens up about finding his voice at a young age, coping with and overcoming trauma, and how playing Belize in Tony Kushner’s off-Broadway revival of Angels in America changed his life. While he’s hunkered down with his husband at home, Porter also curated this exclusive playlist of songs that are helping him get through, featuring forward-thinking pop (King Princess, Perfume Genius), modern neo-soul (Musiq Soulchild, Anderson. Paak), and dance/electronic music (Purple Disco Machine, Disclosure).
