Social media’s breakout star of quarantine

Remember Beverley Leslie on Will & Grace? He’s a Chattanooga native and now, a breakout star on Instagram—everyone’s newest best friend. Find his same sense of funny and connect during self-isolation with his stories at thelesliejordan.

Leslie Jordan can’t help himself. Better known as Beverley Leslie, the sworn frenemy of Megan Mullally’s character, Karen Walker, on Will & Grace, Leslie laughs it up whatever the circumstances.  

Ever a consummate host and hilarious storyteller, even in sweatshirts and shorts, Leslie’s Instagram videos, including exercising with a back scratcher—#getupandgo #gotupandwent—are fan favorites. His page has so far racked up 2-plus million followers.  

Here in Chattanooga, we’ve always loved Leslie Jordan. He’s loving the city right back by reading a bedtime story online to kids (and big kids at heart) through Chattanooga Public Library. He’s also supported numerous area nonprofit events and causes.
