Saturday was Menstrual Hygiene Day and Hamilton stars Daveed Diggs and Okieriete “Oak” Onaodowan took to Instagram to help end period stigma. Fortuitously, Diggs was only partially dressed.
Onaodowan posted a video of his castmate voicing support for Racket, a nonprofit organization that collects and distributes tampons and pads to women in need.
Diggs gives a shout-out to Margo Siebert, the group’s co-founder and lead plaintiff in the class-action tampon-tax lawsuit in New York State before imploring someone off-camera to “make it rain … tampons.” And rain they do, ricocheting down his glorious person.
If you only watch this video once, you are stronger willed than I am.
