Driving a LED with an open drain digital input

So I was thinking putting a classid circuit with a BJT. But then I saw that GPIO output of the microcontroller are configurables in open drain. So would this circuit work?

enter image description here

The LED has a 20mA forward current and 2V forward voltage so if R=(3.3-2)/0.02 it should be on if GPIO is HIghZ and off if it is GND no?
