In this excerpt from the Independent Lens film The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin, the writer who was once a conservative son of the Old South and would become a gay rights pioneer, reflects on how he came to serve in the Navy while not yet out of the closet. "I volunteered for Vietnam," Maupin says, "because I think I still had some manhood issues going on and I wanted to go to the war."
