"The back room people were back to having sex. They were not talking, they would know lights, it was pitch black. And you were back there to have sex, and that was not what you stood there and talked to your friends. So it's different. The trucks was not where you meet your Friends and hang out. It was to go to have sex. You're tired already of your friends. You want to get off and go home to sleep the same thing like the baths, though the bands became now I didn't know much about the bands because I had no money and the best course money to go in. But the bands became that other scene because they had this bar and the cabaret and, you know, became Bette Midland and Hollywood law and performed at the baths and Jackie Curtis performed at the Benson all that. So that became a different kind of a scene. So the trucks, which people in the podcast like doctor Charles Silverstein, who wrote the joy of gay sex, he talked a lot about that in our interview. Was that somewhere like the majority of gay people you know went to, or was it just kind of like the horniest? Okay. The audience or the busiest. Oh. I was going to school full time. I was working, I don't know how many jobs doing jobs for money plus my jobs in theater doing three or four shows at a time. I would be rehearsing one show doing an 8 o'clock show at la mama, a 10 o'clock show at the WPA. I had to get off. I didn't have time for a comic fucking station. You want to talk about the weather, talk to her. I gotta get off and go to bed. I'm tired. So the trucks was for me. That's what it was. Did it become it? Did it become an addiction though? Yes. Really? I had this all of a sudden this moment..

"When hedwig and the angry inch first premiered off Broadway in 1998, there was nothing that had ever been like it before. And I would argue that there's been very, very little like it since. If you haven't seen it, hedwig is a cult classic musical and also now film about a rock and roll singer from Germany who, as she describes it, has a botched sex change, and that leaves her with the angry inch from the title. Now, one of the many things that fascinates me about hedwig that I wanted to talk to its creator and star John Cameron Mitchell about is the show's ability to continue to capture our attention and fascination. I think that there are very few artists that create something like this that people still want to talk about so in depth more than two decades later. And now currently, John Cameron Mitchell is starring as Joe Exotic in the new TV show called Joe versus Carroll. That series debuts on peacock on March 3rd. And to celebrate the new show, we wanted to revisit this conversation with John, which we originally taped in person back in June of 2019, so I think you're gonna love it as much as I did. And without further ado from the advocate magazine and partnership with Glaad, I'm Jeffrey masters and this is LGBTQ and a with John, Cameron Mitchell. So how do we came out over 20 years ago? Are you a surprised by the legacy and life that it's had since then? Yeah, I mean, we made it first, Steven Trask and I made it for our friends and, you know, we were trying to push the form of a musical within the musical world, you know, off Broadway, we knew we couldn't be on Broadway at the time because it was still pretty conservative. But, you know, when you make something you love, your Friends tend to love it and then a few more do. So yeah, I mean, I don't really plan how many people will see my thing. I just do what I do and hope people will like it. And they have it's been meaningful for people. What do you attribute that ongoing connection to? I don't know. I mean, I think the story of trauma and recreating redefining yourself after that trauma in a certain way, in this case, the trauma wasn't really a trans choice of finding yourself and defining yourself because the character was raped and mutilated and kind of forced into a gender reassignment against their will, which is not exactly a transfer to it's more like someone having a forced medical procedure from a communist government is just it's strange. It's almost like a circumcision, you know, against his will..

Simplify them. is there something that you think. Were understanding in these public conversations about gender. I think we've always misunderstood. That gender is a relational phenomenon. It depends on something else for its existence white. It depends on a varies from time period to time period culture to culture some culture so it depends on hormones. it depends on genitals. It depends on your mood. That day it still relational and that is what we're missing. We're we're not admitting that because to your point we have been. We read about the early feminist movements. We've been redefining what it means. Be a woman. No as long as america's been around as america and yet now when we continue to redefine it people were like well. You're redefining. what are you doing right. We can conceptualize very easily something. That's two dimensional either or as soon as we go year but we're starting to get into the idea of three dimensional concept of jenga were adding imagination to law to what's been laid down. Yes that was done by the earliest feminists saying not going to be that kind of woman and that was the start of the gender revolution. We are children of that going off. What you said about gender being relational depending on who you're around cetera. We have been inside for better part of a year away from all people. How did you feel your own. Experience of gender shifting or evolving. Okay speaking of time. Age picture sudden. I was really really old. I'm seventy three. I thought i was going to be dead. Like thirty nine twenty nine.

"I want to begin with your work and act up in the eighties. When did you first become aware of act up and housing after digit joining almost immediately as the last answer. But i had been a producer for cbs news. I'd quit because i was disgusted by what was happening there. I thought it was empty and offensive. And i ended up taking a job at the hedrick martin institute for lesbian and gay youth becoming an aids educator to teenagers in the schools all over new york city as i got educated about what i had to educate people about. It became clear to me that the epidemic was a political event that it was very much like the vietnam war that i had marched against that it was about people in power not caring about anyone else and being perfectly happy to send people off to die so i could see. The thread was clear. And then i went to something called the war conference in the beginning of nineteen eighty eight and that was a meeting of about two hundred. Lgbt activists from around the country and i begged to be invited to the war conference. And i got there and people started talking about act up. And i thought oh my god. This sounds like something. I really should check out. As soon as i got back. There was a monday night meeting. I went to the monday night meeting. And i walked in and i thought oh my god. These are my people. These are the cranky individualists. Who are really too weird to be part of normal society. And they're here doing civil disobedience and direct action. I can go out in the streets and yell and say what i want and do what i did during the vietnam war in the feminist movement and it all just felt like home

"So you've talked before. About how before drag race you lived as a trans woman for five years and then you decided that that's or you realize that's not actually who you are. Can you just talk about your early experience gender and what led you to think that you might be a trans woman. Oh yeah of. Course why i to reiterate into the versus me figuring out that i'm not. I think it was more of like discovering that. I'm like all of these things you know what i'm saying. Expansion the weirdly. Like i think the trans person that i was is a huge part of who i am now. It's just like a more elevated self perception and then also like some description as far as like gender goes that's where gender neutrality i think comes in right. I just remember growing up. Well i i grew up with all women. So four women I remember being younger. And like the little gameboy and we always like wanted to be a girl. Because it'd be easier. I think we'll have those thoughts a little bit at some point in our life like oh like dealing with the persecution of it or likes negatively or like the self inflicted ideas that we put on ourselves because of other people's opinions we automatically assume that it's a bad thing and how much easier beats like. Just be a girl so then you could wear pretty and for things and you could like boys and you know all these things that you want. Do play with barbies etc. So that was kind of a star. I think and then i met a guy when i was like eighteen. Who was really interested in eureka and i clicked with him really well so then like i was already doing drag and i was living with a trans woman at the time so it just seems like so many factors of my mind mike. My thought process was adding up to this like okay. You're not leaving your authentic self. Maybe this is something you should discover and then the boy comes in. Because and i call him a boy because he turned out not to be a man. Okay reading like in allegra boswell sands so the boy was also there for like that. Validation i guess my having someone to support me through it because he was more interested in eureka. So that's why. I kind of brought that up because the thought process was more from like growing up and then living with the transvaal man and just having those ideas kind of for a long time anyway dating him he he really isn't do eureka. Your drag character and so it's like you're getting all the validation about the feminine side of noon that an interesting. It was interesting but it was like. I really liked him. You know and he was like the first time i ever had like had a guy that could consider like a real interested in mike relationship type situation and saddam was just like you know fell head over heels really quickly so i would have done just about anything but i was already thinking these things. I can't really say like. Oh well i did it. Because i met this guy no i had the quote unquote balls. Elevate or the lack thereof to push myself to do it. Because i had like this validation from the opposite sex or however you want to describe the gender of that situation. I don't know how would talk about that.

"To weigh the suffocation of your soul against whether or not the approval of other people is more important than that. There's no way to for you to live true life if you're living a lie for them and also what does it mean at the end of the day. Part of my decision was just like. I can't even be an honorable man. Unless i do this. I think of myself as incredibly courageous and brave and nothing can not meet out and no. I'm not if i if i can't do that then. I can't lay claim to any of that bravery valour so in order for me to see myself as as you know to be the person. I saw myself as which is a courageous fighter for the vulnerable. I had to fight for me and say to hell whatever comes of it. You don't want to be part of my life anymore. Fun and i had the privilege of doing that because i was older. What was i waiting for darius. Nothing worth slowly killing yourself. On the inside on the weight of ally. No no other person disapproval could ever compare to your own disapproval of yourself with your coming out of the added complexity of having three kids gazette conversation. Something you worried about. Having with them not really. I mean they're incredibly really smart cosmopolitan children. We had this thing and failure call family meetings where we sit down. You know when something big happens. Sit at the table. Meaning we talk and everybody gets talking. You know like a meeting. And so i had a family meeting the table. I had printed out manuscripts. I've written this book. This is what's in it. And i gave them all a manage printed manuscript. Did you give them a heads up like wondering to find in there. Yeah we. I said this is what i've written a book. This is what's in it. Okay because you also reveal sexual assault and violence as a kid all in there. Okay so you give them a heads up for that. There must say we'd if there's any questions let me know they were like i've also you. That's how their minds. They just they immediately didn't think about that. This is like you know i can. I can understand that so that was kind of the way they thought about it. And when my my oldest son who is the fastest reader in the family so he said that he read it all in one sitting so by the entity and then he was finished and he came to me and he says you know.

There's no restrictions no so do you have private guidelines for yourself about what to focus on your most powerful if you write about what you most passionate about and so i try to just stick to things that i know that i can bring something to that things that i am passionate about. Sometimes i feel like i should really. This is a big thing in the news. I should really talk about. But i know that this now. My areas expertise. And i spend more time boning up on it..

"The first is an individual who tells us that their friend has received the cova. Nineteen vaccine developed a headache after the first phaser Station in still has a headache a month. Later is concerned about getting a second dose. What do you think about that. I mean understandably when you have a side effect soon after vaccine the temptations to blame it on that vaccine so point one. I'd like to make is that temporarily is not always causality as we found out over and over again for this particular listener. If you have a headache that's gone on for a month and you're not somebody who's had an issue like that I would urge that listener to go in and be evaluated. There are number of things diagnostic possibilities that go through my head hearing that story and i would not just say well. It was the vaccine and leave it at that. I would investigate further right. Say the other thing. I think helena's that you know having had a side effect after one dose does not guarantee that you're going to have that side effect or even have that side effect in a worse way after a second does that does happen. But there's no guarantee that that's going to happen and when you look at an issue like headache and you know i don't wish month-long headache on anybody but when you look at the incidence of headache and complications after getting covet that is a far worse proposition. So there are people that are put in the unfortunate position and many of us myself included will be in. this group. Comes to the possibility of a booster dose after you've had a side effect of valuating whether or not you should take a booster dose in light of that side effect will be a very individualized sort of decision. You make in association with your healthcare provider. I have similar question. is from a listener who stays at their niece. Had a sore arm for about a week. After the first dose it then went away but recurred after a week arm was sore again. So should this individual get their second dose absolutely and the reason. I say that so quickly as you know. A sore arm is something one can deal with something that one will recover from whether the sore arm a month later was due to vaccine is is impossible to know and they may. Well have a sore arm after a second dose. That's a common thing to have happened but that pales in in consideration to the side effect profile that we see in people who actually go on to develop kobe so a sore arm in service of preventing cogan is I think for me that balance of risks and benefits would clearly be in favor of getting the vaccine makes sense..

And i was definitely among those people where it was sort of like okay. I'm not gonna stay here forever. I need to get out of here. I always wonder about how growing up. I grew up in the south as well and like having behavior voice having that police and i was described as like allow person and a feminine person. I was wondering like if i hadn't experienced like what would my personality be like now. Like would i be louder. Would it be more feminine. And then i also then later realized last couple of years. Oh actually everybody. In america is having their behavior police. It's not just the kids absolutely. Yeah that's something. I think about a lot because i thought it was unique to do. Btu people than i find that in writing about the straight world. I'm like oh my goodness straight. He will have to go through so much just like act a certain way present a certain way like i talk about a little bit in the fashion chapter about me trying to present his a straight guy in what that entailed in the clothes. I had to wear the things i had to say. God this is just a lot it. Yeah the majority of the stories in the book are from your youth or more vulnerable stories of people that trying to figure out their careers relationships all these things and struggling with that striving to make it in life do you consider yourself to still be striving or was that just a purposely for this one book. You want to present that yeah. I think especially in the narrative of this book because obviously the memoir doesn't tell my whole life story tells a handful of stories that kind of together cohered to make points and have something to say. And i found it very important in book to portray the version of me. That was trying super hard to make it in life. That was trying super hard to have a writing career to not have to move back to oklahoma to just find a way to make things work. Because i think that's a really interesting narrative the way you go from being that vulnerable kid where a lot of bad things happen to you and kind of determining okay. I need to be the opposite of this. I need to work really hard. I need to lose weight. Needs to find the right guy like all these questions come into our heads and the sort of childhood trauma that pushes us to continue trying to be better and better and better all the time..

The significance of yahoo answers is because they've given it that much of a a wind downtime But i would say the the posts on the front page right now which were mid two weeks ago. are a combination of Denial that the site is going down. People say no. It was the april fool's day joke and then walked later than they thought it would Semi fond reminiscence about the most helpful categories and the most hated pacific.

Yeah you work diligently for a long time occasionally Cross daba you. You go back and forth talking over the schematics and it's it's it's not easy to slip a part of something into the ghost and not have the rest of it fall apart because he the point is to have it slip back in so they never know what exactly is going on. You think if it takes the better part of a night But you you manage to workout sort of like how like what parts of this breakwater to slip out keeping the rest intact. And letting the waves come through andrew. You only occasionally see cross daba who only disorder remarks upon your at work here. You're making a metro. No you don't know why. So when i'm gonna offer to. You is sort of similar to the insight role that drifted to figure out what he was making not to figure. You're making to make a metronome is probably very simple. But i can still let you roll if you want or if you like your role could be convincing cross daba that sires still lives. Let's do that well with talk it out before we have to the. Hey hey hey hey you yes yes don't do. Do you require more materials now. No okay so did you have like a mentor or something. Of course many do. I mean like requirements worship now dirksen pip so think i met your mentor. I doubt that they are long dead There so have you been listen to me okay. Wow he moves close to you is level with your eyes. Do not think me like yourself. I have known people that have died long before your grandparents were born. Yeah so maybe a guy who's trapped in a weird temporal stasis might be someone you know then if you're civil that means nothing to me there's the imperial physical there we go to for injuries talks like they're from a million years ago and they're trapped in time forever because they did something to piss off the emperor and i asked them if they had anyone on the outside world. They wanna talk to you and they said a guy with cat is oh yes yes and may i ask further. Did an ogre perhaps introduce you to this physical unicorn. Give you the sign. Why you think i don't know how old i visit them. Bud i just. It's a physical office. i walk in. It's it's not. how else would they know about. Your weird little cat is. Do you think a lot of people like you know. I went to imagine that means. That could be anybody who has seen me. They don't leave their stupid hut well. It appears that they should get out more but my sire is dead. I mentor loss. They said you'd think that they're not. I don't know what to tell you. I can give you a chicken. You can go see for yourself. Give me a role you think. You're gonna like forcefully note. Do it do it or do you have perhaps something something clever to say the massive love something clever to say. Unfortunately it'll mean you need something clever to say yeah or show or you give us insight. I'm not gonna do that. They won't let me see their face. Because that's part of the cursor. Whenever but i can tell you what they're like they're really over enthusiastic they They seem kind. They're always kind when when me and my friends go visit. They give advice and and when we offer to help them they they're evasively at all. I of medicare and selfless person. They are not like me. There are others like me. But none. Like my sire. Anything weird to you when you leave the physics figure out. What is it the merck okay. That's a good good idea. I'll where do i have marks seromi finesse real quick yell atropine is to see if i can think of this Ten easy yeah. Yeah i'll just. I guess i don't know i don't remember where i have marks but also lift In show one. Maybe on my arm. The cat i turns into a slit crossed at that moment moves. Not so fast that your eyes can't see it like with a boulder ny but so facts that your head can't like turn to follow as I actually drake's clicks. You cut you come.

"Enough money to live until one hundred twenty. You know i mean. Human lifespan leaves the beginning longer. At least if you look backwards it seems that way just looking back a half a century or a couple of centuries ago we see that were living on average way longer than we ever did before in so. I don't know if i should really need to plan to be one hundred twenty but yeah there's a chance i could live to be pretty long and i think we're all interested in knowing. How long am is an individual gonna live. You know what are the predictors of the things i can do to maybe enhance a healthy life for a long period in so we're looking inside the body we've been looking inside the body for a long time to look at things going on in our anatomy and physiology that might predict whether we're going to be long lived or not. Are we going to be one of those. People lives into our nineties are in our hundreds are we gonna live to a hundred and twenty this. There's something in our body now that we can look at. It's going give us a hint at that. Well they're a little piece of the puzzle has been discovered recently at least a potential piece of the puzzle and that involves a protein called. Nfl nfl stands for neuro. Filament light chain. Nfl narrow filament light chain protein and that is found in our blood in if we have a high level of nfl in our blood that usually indicates brain damage of some sort. So it's kind of ironic. I think that if we get for playing football we get hitting the head we get brain damage our. Nfl levels are going to go up at our blood. But of course this nfl a different nfl. It's neuro filament. Light chain protein is going to go up. It's going to be a signal sort of like you know. Are those markers in our blood that tells us when there is damage to our myocardium tells us there's damage to our and we also see a rise in nfl levels as you would expect in neurodegenerative diseases.

"That you might use to help identify individuals who might have this issue with brain fog but then once you've identified them. What is it that that you do specifically to help them to recover. So unfortunately there's not a pill or anything like that that we can give a patient and they're just going to recover from this so it really is dependent on a rehabilitation approach so with cadet cognitive rehabilitation rehabilitation looking at brain function and thinking and attention and focus. We actually have both speech pathologists and occupational therapist that help provide this therapy and the therapy has to specific parts to it. So there is compensation as well as restoration. Compensation being were having these problems. Were seeing these problems. How can we change the environment around us to make us more successful. So if somebody's having problems with memory they might write us more notes or use alarms to remind them to do something start using different pneumonic or other things to remember. Have a family member who reminds him of certain things as opposed to the restoration therapy which is more. Let's make this better. Let's actually work on improvement. And that is very focused on. Not just you know being on your computer doing brain game type things. But finding ways to work that improvement in today life and there's a lot of evidence and actually manuals and textbooks and how to provide Restore restored of cognitive rehabilitation I remember a number of months ago discussing with one of your colleagues. That male clinic has a program. I believe that we've set up specifically for individuals with long haulers And that it is a multidisciplinary clinic. Could you tell us a little bit about that. And how your work fits in absolutely so a lot of our patients. Start in this program that dr van had described Which is basically a comprehensive rehabilitation program. So they're working with multiple providers. A lot of the therapy is focused on the fatigue. And some of those physical symptoms people are experiencing so they work with our Therapist in physical and occupational therapy on.

"Questions. If ivermectin worked it would be really great because it's a very inexpensive medication and would offer therapy particularly in a lower economic situated countries For that treatment it's less than a dollar a dose bow. Yeah so it would be beneficial if it were true. The data as i have seen them thus far does not support the idea that we would treat outside of a clinical trial. so let's get the clinical trial data. First let's not make the mistake that was made with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin and a variety of other things. So the key thing is as you and i know pledged first do no harm. We find out. Are these adding benefit or adding side effects and fortunately with eyedrops the corcoran. It harmed people. And doesn't that. Just say a lot. Greg about how far we've come in a year that a year ago. We were desperate to find solutions. What do we do now that people are contracting this. And we've come a long way. Well we've learned a lot about If we're going to use convalescent plasma for example the need to use it early and high tighter plasma. We've learned an awful lot. Done some podcasts. On the neutralizing monoclonal antibodies as therapy In covid nineteen. We've learned a lot about using two monoclonal rather than a single drug and instituting that very early on. We're now beginning even to move the science forward to say. Are there situations where we might ina preventive rather than a therapeutic posture. Give some of these therapies so It is amazing to me with international collaboration. You know as i said in a recent editorial that i that i just submitted when you Focus and fund research. The scientific community can do just short of miraculous things but the key is focused and funding while collaborating has gone on a. We have dug deep into the a mail bag today. Greg do you have any last words for us or thought a as i often do encouraging people what we have seen is that people are decreasing their travel..
