I think Ian had been seriously considering it. All along and wanted a little support in that way and. My. Partner at the time and I were. More than. Willing to. Give him my opinion. You know you were friends prior to that. And he was in the closets publicly. Yes. I mean IAN was. Pretty Open. People. Knew IT professionals but he didn't. He never talked about it. He didn't I see. This subject but they didn't bring it up. And contextual textually than was obviously a big thing, but we'll say. Did sort of them make you an activist Jesus have to then. Every day. No. If someone came out in public life like Oh, that's what the that's often the fear that I'll have to be an activist. Really. But. Sorry. That's what happens. That happened Ellen Degeneres. She said the very same thing. Really. I don't want to be an activist well. Once. You're out and you're and invulnerable to the. Public's opinion you you. You start getting indignant. About the difference in the way you're treated you know. And and Ellen in her own way is a big activist just who she puts on that show Totally. And also. I think there's an. Sort of. There's a benign version of activism which is just being around just being around and being gay and just well I've always been a member of that. Well I think. What you can do is just be ordinary about it in public and that's what I think people always connected with about your stories it was. It was it was gay straight everybody all mixed in. Yeah. Yeah and I think that's why find interesting is people. What's gay life like? Mostly straight people. Can in my way. Yeah. Yeah. That's been really my. Called arms all along, just be yourself. And get on with it. That's all I've done. Really I don't I don't consider myself an activist in the sense that I've taken to the streets a lot. That's really interesting. Yeah. but I think what I've done. This insisted on the. By visibility. And the early days when I did press I'd be. Off Rambo with a reporter and Telling some queer story and they'd say, of course, I won't put him really that they were censoring me on the spot and and I said, no, I said that to you because I want you to put it in I want you to say that one thing that I remember. Was You said publicly about rock Hudson. And the he was gay. And That caused A. It, but you felt among people. Yeah. Usually had to be set question it had to be said. First of all, he was clearly a man with AIDS and it wasn't going to be around very long and I wasn't going to keep silent about. How he got that. because I had lost so many friends myself very brave people who've been openly gay and dealing with the prejudice. Most of all. I knew that the world would be kindly or to rock if somebody spoke intelligently about what sort of man he was and honestly they were lying brost hunter, his producer was lying and talking about a watermelon diets and things. And the liver cancer liver cancer just ridiculous panicked responses. And I. I didn't I couldn't take it. And Rock ended up sending his biographer to meet me he said you're the first person I should talk to so. I realized that he understood what I had done. Why done it but a lot of queers didn't really. Thought it was a betrayal because they were still that code of secrecy you must. You must not spell the spill the secret you know if you're lucky enough to know a movie star and you're supposed to keep quiet about it. And I didn't sign on for that. Did, you talk to him about it ever? Before thing you know I I yeah. I did when we first met I, said, you know. If you told your story would make a huge difference in the world and and. He was kind of fascinated by the idea really but his partner. Tom Clark. Said not until my mother. Dies. and. All I could think of was if I was fucking rock, Hudson. Which I tried briefly. I would be happy to tell my mother about it. and. She would probably be happy for me. See Me over the move.

He's also on the frontlines fighting the COVID battle for us every day at his hospitals, which were eternally grateful for and by the way he saved my dad's life twice. Dr Steven Tailback. You Doing Stephen? Doing great good to hear you in and see you at least virtually anyway. It's weird, isn't it? We would normally see each other all the time right at least twice a week during the week, and then on the weekends dinner, and by the way I know you've been teetotalling for like three months. You'RE GONNA have to explain that to the group why I am drinking the mcallen twenty-five that you gave me for my birthday, so thank you very much happy birthday. I'm glad to see that. You still have some left in the bottle as of. mid-may. So, why is it? YOU'RE NOT DRINKING STEVE? From my perspective thing on the front lines you Wanna do everything you can to. Protect yourself immunologically, and so my goal was to optimize my immune system, considering the fact that there is no scene, but in order to optimize one's immune system. You want to eat healthier. You WanNa sleep better. And when I looked at the things that I was doing in my life I was not exercising as much as I would have liked to. My sleep was always fragmented. Fragmented and I do know. The alcohol suppresses the immune system not that I. You know I have more than probably one drink a week. When I see you I. Never drink otherwise, but nevertheless I felt that in order to really give myself the best possible defense against this miserable virus I should do. Everything could now to optimize my immune system until you you eating differently to. Eating Vegan I've been avoiding caffeine which has helped my my sleep tremendously of avoided alcohol I've started back on a regular exercise, so exercise has something to do with your immune system absolutely exercises very important for your immune system why it's a very good question I'm not sure I have an answer is simple answer as to why, but exercised absolutely increase the circulation. It stimulates your your. Your metabolic rate kind of wakes up your cells, and it optimizes cellular performance and metabolic performance, and at the end of the day. That's what your immune system is is the doing constant surveillance of cancer cells is doing constant surveillance for viruses and bacteria, and you wanted at optimal performance, but you're telling me that a glass of macallan twenty five is not so good for my. My immune system. It's certainly not good for your immune system. Now the question is, does it actually have any deleterious effects truly having a glass? You know a week or so probably not, but what would it do to your system? That would affect your immune system. What we do know that you do have we call Milo suppression and Rith Rope Suppression. That is you stop manufacturing red. Red Blood Cells. People who use alcohol to excess clearly are have increased susceptibility to bacterial infections viral infections. They manufacture less red blood cells so obviously they're gonNA. have difficulty adequately getting oxygen to vital organs. Organs are going to suffer in terms of their peak performance speaking of having a little fun with it. I'M GONNA put your feet to the fire a little bit right away. Before months ago, Steve we had the honor of being joined by Dr Suzanne Donovan, who broached the concept of this corona virus and you guys? We're talking about it. And I almost could hear battle hymn of the Republican, the background and a Glory Glory Hallelujah and you guys were talking about how America was so strong and so well designed as far as our health care system. We really knew what we were doing. Chances are this corona. Thing wasn't going to be a big deal for us as it would be potentially some other parts of the world. That was then. This is now a steve. The US has four percent of the world's population and we're currently running at twenty five percent of the world, global cases and deaths. Why is that first and foremost?

Do you have fence? We have some some slack some still slack some fencing. That's what we have. And that was approved by Democrats and Republicans under the Bush administration.

They asked that it be placed so that he could they could funnel traffic in a certain direction. And we need a heck of a lot more of that and more boots on the ground and more equipment.
