Little Big Man – 

June 23, 2020 – “I’m really divided whether I would go on Instagram or anything about it,” he said. “But when you have 4.7 million followers, I mean, you can’t just sit silent. I’m a gay man who went through a lot of the early gay rights movement.”

He chose instead to turn his Instagram over for one day to Deesha Dyer, a former Obama Administration Social Secretary, who now is a creative event strategy consultant.

“Look, I think it’s time for me just to listen, just to listen,” he said.

Here, Mr. Jordan answers some questions on the charming beginnings of his social media (a confusion between “post it” and “Post-it”), his early career goals (jockey) and more. This interview has been edited.
