1. Encore Program with Michael Caputo & Twins In Mexico Dr Mara Karpel Your Golden Years 56:00

Author and human rights/LGBTQ+ advocate, Michael Caputo returns to the show from NYC.  In July 2020, he joined us to discuss his autobiography, Dear Pat Cooper, about his journey with a loving family and an absent father.  

This time, he’s back to discuss his second book, Chameleon: A Memoir.  In this memoir, Michael shows us another side of  himself, in which he vividly describes his harrowing journey coming out of the closet and living authentically, post-Stonewall, pre-HIV/AIDS epidemic, and thereafter.  Michael writes, “I went from being an innocent altar boy to an older gay man caught up in the middle of the John Travolta sex scandal that put me on the front page of the Daily News and written up in People magazine and the National Enquirer….Once I let go of all that guilt that I grew up with and embraced my true self instead of hiding it, I started to live and enjoy my life.”  

Minerva & Ruben share a new place in Mexico.
