Actor, Creator and Performing Artist
A multi-hyphenate performer, creator, and recording artist, Dyllón Burnside currently stars as 'Ricky' in Ryan Murphy's and FX's ground-breaking and Emmy-nominated series, "Pose."
Last year, Dyllón hosted the series "Prideland" for PBS. The series explored LGBTQ+ identity in the South and was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award.
Dyllón first captivated audiences with his Broadway debut, starring as Anthony in 2014's Holler if Ya Hear Me, a hip-hop musical inspired by the music and lyrics of Tupac Shakur. He also appeared in NBC's "Peter Pan Live!" and the HBO series "High Maintenance," all while completing his final year at the prestigious CAP21 Conservatory for music theatre and The New School where he earned a bachelor's degree in Media Studies and Writing.
The Pensacola, Florida native began performing professionally at the age of twelve as a member of the Hip-Hop/R&B boy band 3D, which afforded him the opportunity to tour the country performing original music. Dyllón released his debut solo single last year and is currently working on new music.
In addition to his performance work, Burnside is passionate about producing quality arts content that promotes social change and works with students at schools across the country about the importance of arts education as a means of personal empowerment and self-expression.
