Roll out the pink carpet for a true Southern queen, y’all. The outrageously comedic Leslie Jordan is heading to the Carolinas for three hilarious evenings of reminiscences and observations about being a gay actor in Tinseltown since 1982.

The stories are culled from Jordan’s new book, “My Trip Down the Pink Carpet.” The star is touring the U.S. to promote the tome. He is currently scheduled to make royal appearances at Charlotte’s Ovens Auditorium on June 18, Raleigh’s Fletcher Opera House on July 11 and the Charleston Music Hall on July 14.

While he’s in each town, Jordan will sign copies of his book at a chain bookstore. More information on these events is available at his official website,, and further details will be announced here in Q-Notes and online.

Jordan got his start in Hollywood more than 20 years ago, after making a cross-country Greyhound trip from Tennessee. Since then, he has appeared in hundreds of TV shows, films and commercials.

Of course, he is most famous for his scene-stealing portrayal of Brother Boy in the film “Sordid Lives” and for his Emmy-winning role as Karen’s rabid arch-nemesis Beverley Leslie on “Will & Grace,”

Unfortunately, Jordan’s not a Tar Heel, but maybe we could just give our Brother Boy honorary citizenship? (Considering the Vols used to be Heels and all.)
