Eventbrite - The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin

The director of To Be Takei returns with a look at another larger-than-life gay icon, the author behind Tales of the City, which captured the radical cultural shift of queer life in San Francisco in the 70s and 80s with an honesty and humor that reverberated with fans worldwide.  Maupin journeys from Southern aristocrat and closeted conservative (serving in Vietnam and working for Jesse Helms) to beloved chronicler of the the LGBTQ movement in this boisterously entertaining portrait.
