Lil Papi Of ‘Pose’ Is Breaking Hearts And Changing Relationship Standards Every Episode

Since the premiere of FX’s “Pose,” the show’s subject matter put the series on another level. Had you ever seen a TV series based on the New York City iconic ballroom culture on television before? Didn’t think so. While mainstream programming has ventured into programming featuring the LGBTQ+ community, “Pose” brought forth a new kind of experience, mainly because of its incredible stars. One, Angel Bismark Curiel, is finally getting the attention he deserves.

Angel Bismark Curiel, who plays Lil Papi, is getting more screen time in season two and people are starting to pay attention.

We didn’t see much of Lil Papi in the first season, but he was up to no good. The Dominican-American actor did an incredible job that first season. But back then he was selling drugs, and Blanca (played by MJ Rodriguez) wasn’t having it so she kicked him out. This season, however, Lil Papi got his act together thanks to love.

Lil Papi and Angel (played by Indya Moore) have embarked on a new romance and Curiel’s acting skills are in full bloom.

In season two we see this love blossom, and we didn’t really see it coming, but now that we’re here we’re rooting for these two.

“Angel Bismark Curiel is really stepping it up this season and might even be the MVP of the episode,” AV writer Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya said. “Leading up to this episode, even when they aren’t the main focus of the scene, the chemistry between Lil Papi and Angel has been palpable, and Papi seemingly worships her. It’s sweet, and it’s nothing short of revolutionary to see a trans woman get a beautiful, fully fleshed out love story on a major television show. Mock directs these big romantic scenes superbly, too. Their first kiss is as dramatic and captivating as it should be.”

People are (understandably) drooling over Lil Papi and his swoon-worthy looks.

Yas, Lil Papi. Look at him on the beach and on the pool serving those Lil Papi looks we have come to love. Who couldn’t fall in love with that smile and face?

Looks like men everywhere are going to have to step their game up. Lil Papi is relentless in showing Angel all the love and respect she deserves. Not only does he defend her and care for her, he is unapologetic and unstoppable in supporting all of her dreams and ambitions.

Honestly, the world doesn’t deserve a love as pure and real as Lil Papi’s.

Fortunately, his love and honesty are giving everyone a glimpse into what you should be expecting from your lovers. They should do anything for you, like Lil Papi. If they aren’t, are they really worth your time?

Oh! It’s also rumored that Curiel is dating author and “Pose” producer Janet Mock.

Mock and her husband divorced earlier this year, and Angel Bismark Curiel captioned the picture above by saying “Date night.” We love them as a couple!

We can’t wait to see what else this season has in store for Lil Papi.
