Ezra Miller proves himself as not a fantastic beast, but a poised Playboy bunny in his new feature with the publication. Hop, hop, he did in patent leather pumps and bunny ears, looking more confident than any man has. The 26-year-old actor has evidently been repurposing his Crimes of Grindelwald press tour as a queer crusade of sorts, donning binary-shattering looks at his red carpet premieres. The instantly iconic moments include a Moncler x Pierpaolo Piccioli floor-length number, which, let's just say took us to church.

Not only is Miller opening up possibilities for the male wardrobe in his sartorial fluidity, but the actor is also opening up widely unspoken discourses on sexuality. His interview with the magazine spans a comprehensive range of sexual subjects. Naturally, one would think, as it is Playboy after all. That said, the topics of conversation are not your typical sex talks. The actor opens up about his early exposure to sexuality, stints of abstinence, and abuse. More specifically, he discusses his abandonment of monogamy, which came as a result of severe heartbreak. Consequently, he tells Playboy, “I’m trying to find queer beings who understand me as a queer being off the bat, and I feel like I’m married to them 25 lifetimes ago. And then they are in the squad--the polycule.” He describes the polycule as a cast of sexual partners, which apparently includes members of his band, Sons of an Illustrious Father.

It’s clear that Miller’s perspective on sexuality is not exactly the norm, but that is what is to be celebrated. We, too, should perhaps embark on his queer mission. For so long we have been consumers of the heteronormative, monogamous agenda, but what better time for change has there been than now, right? Let's polycule!
