Candyman Start and Cover Star of The Advocate Magazine's Latest Issue, Colman Domingo
A glance at Domingo’s résumé reveals he’s pretty much done it all; plays, musicals, television, movies, talk shows, playwriting, and directing. “For years, I’ve felt all these things that I do, and I kept asking, I don’t know how much more I’m supposed to do. Honestly, I just don’t know how to describe it, but this year, for some reason, I feel like things are starting to change a bit.”
The multitalented Domingo has worked steadily throughout his career. While he believes the intersections of his being Black and gay haven’t necessarily cost him work, he calls out disparities in the attention he’s received for it.
