Grand Marshal Leslie Jordan
- Leslie Jordan is one of the most consistently recognizable faces in popular entertainment. From his Emmy-winning role on “Will & Grace,” to recent stints on “American Horror Story,” Leslie remains an in-demand mainstay as a Stage / TV / Film performer, voice-over artist, fund raiser, spokesperson, out artist, and equal rights activist. We’re proud to announce Leslie as a Grand Marshal for 2016!
- Mr. Jordan is also scheduled to attend the “Crack of Noon” Pride Brunch at 12:00 noon earlier that day. Brunch tickets sell out quickly and are now on sale.
