Tuc is a star in the literal sense of the word, shining light on and lifting up the people around him, and he is as talented and funny as he is dashing and kind. I was a fan of his before I became a friend, and I have seen firsthand how committed he is to supporting other queer artists and making art that matters,” Williamson expressed in a statement for Queerty‘s article featuring Tuc.
