"I've been trying very hard lately to not become a grumpy old queen... I fear I'm not being entirely successful."

Actor/writer Leon Acord (Old Dogs & New Tricks) is annoyed. About cancel culture. About getting older. Precocious parents. Closeted actors. Technology. Racism. Facebook. Culture wars. MAGA.

In his new collection of comic essays, queer curmudgeon (queer-mudgeon?) Acord tackles these subjects and more.

But it's not all gloom and doom. There are also lighter pieces, about gay men's love of divas, how to embrace getting older, why trans rights benefits everyone, and an extensive catalog of movies made before 2000 that every gay man born after 2000 should see. He discusses how he finally kicked the cigarette habit, how show business has changed in the past 20 years, and why Leslie Jordan inspires him to remain happy even as the world seems to be falling apart.

If you enjoyed Acord's 2020 tongue-in-cheek "Hollywood memoir by a non-famous actor" SUB-LEBRITY - The Queer Life of a Show-Biz Footnote, you'll love this new assortment of bitchy but bubbly ruminations on modern-day life.

"Acord's own proclivity for trouble means that his accounts can be racy, offensive (to some), forthright, and satisfyingly political." Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review (reviewing SUB-LEBRITY).
