“My mom will never march in a gay pride parade with a big sign. She is very private. She lives in Chattanooga. She tries so hard to understand me and my life. But she said to me once, ‘Leslie, if I live to be 105 I’ll never understand this need you have to air your dirty laundry. Why can’t you just whisper it to a therapist?!’ She doesn’t understand. I was raised in a religion that I never felt embraced me.” – Sordid Lives actor Leslie Jordan on his mother, to whom he’s dedicated his new book, My Trip Down the Pink Carpet. [MSNBC]
