Wynn Wagner and his husband, Rick Wagner, live in Dallas. Texas doesn’t recognize their marriage, even though it was done by an ordained and licensed priest in a legitimate Old Catholic Church during a church-approved Nuptial Mass. God recognizes the marriage even if the state doesn’t.
“Texas versus God,” Wynn says. “I pick God, since Texas has unconstitutional laws that illegally restrict the free exercise of my religion.”
Wynn is the author of several other books, including Vamp Camp, influential, Recovering Catholic, and A Pilgrim’s Guide to the Old Catholic Church, and others. Before that, he was a programmer who helped write the tax software used by some of the world’s largest corporations. He also wrote Opus-CBCS, a computer bulletin board system that was wildly popular in the 1980s. Opus generated millions of dollars for HIV and AIDS, back when almost nobody was helping fund research or caring for those suffering from the disease. He also wrote a short piece called “HIV: Day One” for those who just learned they have HIV. You can find links to this and all his other works at www.WynnWagner.com
Before programming and writing, Wynn was in radio as a disc jockey and newscaster in Texas and in New York City. And before that, he was a pimply-faced teenager in Fort Worth.
The legendary novelist, Patricia Nell Warren, calls Wynn Wagner a “powerhouse in LGBT publishing.”
