Doc Soup Sundays: A Sunday morning Doc Soup spin-off featuring the world's best art, culture and design docs.
Best known for his Tales of the City (novel) series of novels, Armistead Maupin is a beloved literary figure and activist for LGBTQ rights, but first he had to shed his bigoted roots after growing up in North Carolina. From his conservative family, to enlisting as a naval officer during Vietnam, to working with Nixon, to settling in San Francisco, Maupin’s life journey is a fascinating story of self discovery and the evolution of sexual politics in America. He tells the tale in this heartening documentary along with a little help from his friends Neil Gaiman, Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis, Ian McKellen and other familiar faces. ow.ly/qZ9H30bBFI6
