Gay funnyman Leslie Jordan returns to Atlanta for ‘Stories I Can’t Tell Mama’

Lily Tomlin gave gay comic Leslie Jordan some sage advice not long ago about his one man shows across the country. She told him no one cared about the sets he often brings along with him – what they wanted to see is him simply tell his stories. He returns to Mixx on Thursday to do just that with his new show, “Stories I Can’t Tell Mama.”

As he was picking material for his latest appearance in the ATL, Jordan thought about the notion he’s had for a while – that gay men just eventually become their mothers. Using slides and show and tell, he recounts his own relationship with his mother in Chattanooga in “Stories” and how their relationship has changed over time, especially since coming out to her. 

“It’s a perfect show to do around Mother’s Day,” he says.

Gay Cinco de Mayo party more than margaritas at Las Margaritas

Cinco de Mayo at Las Margaritas

Don't tell gay Atlanta that Cinco de Mayo isn't the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico. The landslide of bar events is too grande to stop and besides, El Dieciseis de Septiembre just doesn't roll off the tongue.

The man at the helm of Midtown's largest Cinco fiesta is Oscar Alfredo Valdivieso, better known as the mile-a-minute "Papi" by friends and regulars who frequent his Latin restaurant, Las Margaritas.

"This is not just tacos and margaritas," Valdivieso says of his second annual Cinco de Mayo Outdoor Latin Carnaval. "They're going to go crazy."
