This story of blackness + queerness uplifted a history of Negro spirituals, and how the messages in those songs offer us solace today. This play did many things that have never been done on Broadway, and we are grateful for the recognition of that. Our Tony Award nominations (and wins!) on Sunday were cherries on top of an incredible experience.”

Nicholas Ashe Justice Smith, Partner, Dating
In June 2020, amid the nation-wide protest after George Floyd’s murder, Justice Smith came out as queer via IG. The “Paper Towns” actor also outed Nicholas Ashe as his romantic partner.
Justice shared he and Nicholas had protested in New Orleans. The gay couple reportedly chanted ‘Black Trans Lives Matter’ ‘Black Queer Lives Matter’ ‘All Black Lives Matter’.
“As a black queer man myself, I was disappointed to see certain people eager to say Black Lives Matter, but hold their tongue when Trans/Queer was added. I want to reiterate this sentiment: if your revolution does not include Black Queer voices, it is anti-black. If your revolution is okay with letting black trans people like #TonyMcDade slip through the cracks in order to solely liberate black cishet men, it is anti-black.”
He continued by writing,
“You are trying to push yourself through the door of a system designed against you, and then shut the door behind you. It is in our conditioning to get as close to whiteness, straightness, maleness as we can because that’s where the power is. And if we appeal to it, maybe it’ll give us a slice. But the revolution is not about appeal. It is about demanding what should have been given to us from the beginning. What should have been given to black, queer, and trans individuals from the beginning. Which is the right to exist. To live and prosper in public. Without fear of persecution or threat of violence.”
Justice then expressed there were too many tragedies on his TL. To lighten the mood with black love, he and Nicholas made their relationship public.
According to Justice, Nicholas had been his rock and a guiding light through all the BS. The famed actor concluded the IG post by telling his partner that he loved him.
