In this episode of Notes From Hollywood® on PromoHomo.TV®, Producer/Host Nicholas Snow is pleased to spotlight Expletives Not Deleted by “Queer-mudgeon” Leon Acord

“I’ve been trying very hard lately to not become a grumpy old queen… I fear I’m not being entirely successful.”

If you follow him on social media, you know gay actor Leon Acord (of streaming series Old Dogs & New Tricks, Prime Video) is a burgeoning curmudgeon – or is that queer-mudgeon?

He certainly doesn’t hold back in his new collection of bubbly yet bitchy comic essays entitled Expletives Not Deleted, available in paperback, e-book & audio book out now.

Acord takes comedic aim at such hot-button topics as Donald Trump, cancel culture, racism, cigarette addiction, the ‘Trans’ controversy, closeted actors and the down side of technology.

But it’s not just gloom and doom. Acord offers his take on some light-hearted topics – the reasons gay men love divas, how precocious parents are ruining their children, and why gay men should celebrate getting older. Highlights also include Acord’s exhaustive catalog of 20 movies made before 2000 that every gay man born after 2000 should watch, a look back at his disastrous stint as a Los Angeles theatre critic, and how the late, great Leslie Jordan inspired him to embrace his ‘inner curmudgeon’ and still find happiness.

Acord’s previous book, the tongue-in-cheek 2020 memoir SUB-LEBRITY, was a five-star Amazon bestseller and garnered rave reviews.

Why a book of essays this time?

“Folks seem to enjoy my posts, particularly when I’m good-naturedly complaining! It occurred to me that, instead of just posting my rants and ravings on social media, I should get organized, ‘go deep,’ organize and expand upon my thoughts, and offer something more substantial than my casual grousing,” Acord explains. “I hope readers will enjoy these essays even more!”
