Christian Siriano is encouraging people to exercise their right to vote. In the latest installment of his digital talk show, So Siriano, the Project Runway mentor and fashion designer recruited help from guest Billy Porter to inspire others to go out and cast their ballots.
During the October 29 episode of So Siriano, Christian and Billy spoke out about the importance of voting in the 2020 election. True to form, Billy further emphasized the message with some political-minded fashion, donning a black jacket with the word “vote” emblazoned all over it.
“When you don’t vote, democracy goes away,” Billy said. “We the people are the ones who get to say ‘yay’ or ‘nay,’ and the only way we do that is to vote.”
The two also shared how they make their voices heard through their art. “One of the things I’ve realized is we can show up and do the thing that we can do personally. That’s all we have. We use our art to say something, we use our art to speak truth to power,” Billy stated.
