Armistead Jones Maupin, Jr. (born May 13, 1944) is an American writer, best known for Tales of the City, a series of novels set in San Francisco.
Maupin is married to Christopher Turner, a website producer and photographer. He saw him on a dating website and then "chased him down Castro Street, saying, 'Didn’t I see you on Daddyhunt.com?'" Maupin and Turner were married in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, on February 18, 2007, though Maupin says that they had called each other "husband" for two years prior.
Maupin's former life partner of 12 years, Terry Anderson, was once a gay rights activist (Maupin himself has done much of that sort of work), and co-authored the screenplay for The Night Listener. He lived with Maupin in San Francisco and New Zealand.
Ian McKellen is a friend and Christopher Isherwood was a mentor, friend, and influence as a writer.
He enjoys doing public readings of his own works and has recorded them all as audiobooks.
In 2012 Maupin purchased the home of shoe designers Lynne and Dennis Comeau in Tesuque, New Mexico.
Maupin's life and work, and the settings and the themes therein, are the subject of the documentary The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin.
