NMPBS ¡COLORES!: Armistead Maupin

Author of the popular Tales of the City series, Armistead Maupin talks about his experience.

“When I came out as a gay man, when I moved to San Francisco and suddenly took a look at my own oppression, then I had to look at everyone else and see… it was a lesson in empathy.”

“I want to stress that my stories include everybody. I have gay and straight characters and bisexual, and there is a transgender landlady. And the fun for me is mixing it up and showing how their hearts are all the same.”
