Armistead Maupin & Untold Tales
18 July 2019 | Arts
Have you read any of Armistead Maupin’s books such as Mary Ann in Autumn (2010) or The Days of Anna Madrigal (2014)? ? Have you watched the Tales of the City miniseries on Netflix? It’s the story of a young and naive Mary Ann arriving in San Francisco and taking up rooms in the guest house of the slightly eccentric Anna Madrigal. Until a week ago I had never encountered his work and this delightful story. “ The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin” is a well researched and touching documentary and worth a look. It tells of a man from a very conservative background who became a champion for LGBTQI rights.
