Jennifer Kroot's excellent new documentary The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin chronicles the life and career of gay literary icon and San Francisco legend Armistead Maupin. Born into a conservative North Carolina family, Maupin was a law-school dropout who served in the Navy, met Richard Nixon and worked for Jesse Helms before moving to San Francisco in the 1970s to create the famed Tales of the City newspaper serial (later a book series and PBS show). In the doc, which includes interviews with Laura Linney, Ian McKellen, Olympia Dukakis, Neil Gaiman, Amy Tan and Margaret Cho, Maupin also opens up about coming out, his trysts with Rock Hudson, living through the AIDS epidemic and meeting his 30-years-younger husband, Christopher Turner. Tonight, the author discusses those and more events from his latest autobiography, Logical Family: A Memoir.
