Roping in Billy as the director of the film, Jinks said, "Billy Porter, who I've been fortunate to know for more than 20 years, is the perfect director for this story, which is both hilariously funny, and also quite moving,I wish a movie like this was around when I was growing up. I'm thrilled we get to make it now." 'Camp' is Billy's third directing gig. (ANI)
