Actor Johnny sibilly is committed to âenhancing our shared queer experienceâ once again in Season 3 of its bi-weekly âLogo Liveâ digital series this fall.
The HuffPost got a preview of the new season, which premieres November 2 on Logo TV’s social media platforms, via the trailer above. The series of new episodes includes in-depth interviews with “American Horror Story” actress Angelica Ross, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” former Derrick Barry and former “Bachelor” star Colton Underwood, among others.
Sibilly, whose Hollywood credits include “Pose” and “Hacks,” told HuffPost that each of her guests brings “a unique queer perspective” to pop culture and hot topics that will challenge traditional perceptions of the world. LGBTQ life.
âIt’s a wealthy choice from Sophieâ¦ this show being ‘for us by us’ gives us so many opportunities to talk to our queer stars, the rising stars and those who are ensuring their legacy,â Sibilly said. âHighlighting this cross section is very important to us. “
Some viewers might be surprised by the presence of Underwood, who turned out to be gay in April. The Indiana native has been accused of “monetizing” the queer experience after making a deal with Netflix to document his release journey in an upcoming reality TV series, with Olympian Gus Kenworthy acting as his “gay guide”.
Describing Underwood as âone of the nicest guys I’ve ever met,â Sibilly said he thought viewers would be pleasantly surprised.
âI think a lot of the hindsight was understandable,â he said. âBut I still want to get to the heart of the matter, and the only way to do that is to make room for these conversations. Whether people are okay with Colton having a platform is their choice, but he currently does. And as a queer person, I’d rather be there to help him help us and our stories, rather than exclude him.
Season 3 of “Logo Live” comes at a prolific moment for Sibilly. Earlier this year he was acclaimed for his recurring “Hacks” role as Wilson, a water maintenance worker and the occasional lover of Deborah Vance’s manager, Marcus (Carl Clemons-Hopkins) . Last month it was announced that he had joined the cast of the upcoming revival of Peacock’s âQueer as Folkâ as a series regular.
âI’ve been jostling myself on social media and in these audition rooms for years, so I’d be foolish not to acknowledge that I feel like my dreams are coming true,â Sibilly said. âThis pandemic has ignited a fire in me to continue, to create and, above all, to dream. “
