Did you know that Armistead Maupin hanged out with Rock Hudson in San Francisco?  Hanging out being a slightly veiled euphemism for hooking up. In reality, Armistead admits that he was so star struck that he was not very good at it. Did you know that Maupin was a young Republican and even worked for Jessie Helms? He was actually pretty good at that. Through all of his young exploits, he was especially good at one thing – he wrote stories, stories that became tales. Tales that, for many of us, were required reading as part of our coming out. Jennifer Kroot’s (To Be Takei) documentary highlights not only the characters of Maupin’s tales, but the backstories of his life, how his life is woven into his writing, and how Tales of the City came to be the international sensation that still resonates today. Adorned with reminiscences by his friend, Laura Linney along with Olympia Dukakis, Amy Tan, Sir Ian McKellen and Neil Gaiman, The Untold Tales is an honest retrospective of a gifted writer, the culture of “logical family” he helped to create and a love letter to San Francisco for the solace it gave to a generation of LGBT people.
