Armistead Jones Maupin, Jr.[1][2][3] (born May 13, 1944)[4][5] 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?'"[25][38] 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.[18]

Ian McKellen is a friend and Christopher Isherwood was a mentor, friend, and influence as a writer.[42][43]

He enjoys doing public readings of his own works and has recorded them all as audiobooks.[46]

In 2012 Maupin purchased the home of shoe designers Lynne and Dennis Comeau in Tesuque, New Mexico.[47]
