Johnny Sibilly is an advocate who has been standing up and speaking out for the LGBTQ+ community for sometime, He has branched off to do more projects that align with his passions, and that includes telling those stories.

Sibilly has gone on to star in FX’s “Pose,” the Emmy Award-winning show “Hacks,” and has now come out in the reboot of “Queer as Folk.” He said that if he never had to play a “straight character” again, he would be OK with that.

Sibilly came from a military background family but he always knew from a young age that this is where he would end up. He said that coming from his type of background that he would like to tell the story of the military queer person and the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” type of stories to bring to light.

Sibilly wants to keep the importance of these stories and history alive of the LGBTQ+ because “If you don’t advocate for yourself, who will?” he said.
