Movie star Rock Hudson’s legacy went well beyond his film roles, as we all know.

Hudson’s death, publicly acknowledged to be of complications from AIDS, resulted in a dramatic reframing of the disease.

But of course that’s simply the end of his story; a new biography looks at everything leading up to Hudson’s death, including the sad details of life as a closeted gay man before LGBT rights existed.

Mark Griffin recently discussed these themes in his work, All That Heaven Allows, with Terry Gross on Fresh Air; you can listen below or read a transcript on NPR’s website.
