My Interview With James Sheldon, A Queer Director Who Would've Turned 100 This Year Comments (0)

I wrote about the death of my friend James Sheldon in 2016, when he died at 95 of cancer. I spoke to him with an eye toward conducting a series of interviews to memorialize his incredible stories, but took a long time to transcribe our first — and last interview — because when he died, it really just took the joy out of it.

A year ago, I transcribed it and was re-energized by Jim's observations, wit, naughty sense of humor and gift for dish.

This year, the year he would've turned 100 (his doctor always told him he'd make it to the century mark), I decided to finally publish our talk, and The Hollywood Reporter was kind enough to offer itself as the venue.

Please read and share.

Been working on this for a while for Gr8erDays, my nostalgia site — a small series of videos in which I ask people 18-29 to tell me what (if anything) they know about various icons from the past, including some icons who are alive and well and working today!

Giphy-1

If you wanna try these names out on your own millennial friends — or yourself! — here are the lists:

Video #1: Gone with the Wind, James Dean, Diana Ross, Elvis Presley, Elizabeth Taylor, Saturday Night Fever, Barbra Streisand, Marilyn Monroe

Video #2: Cher, George Michael, Dolly Parton, Frank Sinatra, Whitney Houston, Bette Midler, John Lennon, Madonna

Giphy-2

First two just dropped. If you enjoy, please share video #1 and video #2 — and please subscribe.
