Chattanooga, Tennessee-native, and actor Leslie Jordan is an American gem, and we need to protect him at all costs.
His videos, on average, get a minimum of 1M views, and he now has 4M+ followers (and counting) on his Instagram page.
Known for his roles on Will & Grace (Beverley Leslie in which he won an Emmy Award in 2006), The Cool Kids (Sid), and various characters on the American Horror Story mega-successful franchise. He moved to Hollywood back in 1982 (with $1500 sewn into his clothing by his mother).
Jordan presents a hilarious and thought-provoking approach to storytelling needed during our current social distancing orders due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. His strong Southern dialect complements his warm and inviting energy. It’s like listening to stories from our elders.
Currently, the world is feeling a level of unexpected anxiety. From unemployment claims hitting 30M, delayed stimulus checks, small business owners’ concerns about when and if their doors will be open again, pandemic protests, and figuring out how you’re going to pay your bills.

If you follow Leslie on Instagram, as soon as you see his video pop up on your feed, you know he has an interesting story to tell.
