“Inside the Hollywood Closet” (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, November 27, 2020

This week I talked with author Boze Hadleigh about his new book “Inside the Hollywood Closet: A Book of Quotes” a fabulous gift for the holidays no matter what your sexual orientation may be. A project that took Hadleigh 19 years to complete “Inside the Hollywood Closet” delivers inspirational quotes & statements from such stars as Rock Hudson, Truman Capote, Cary Grant, Neil Patrick Harris, k.d. lang, Ellen DeGeneres, Jodi Foster, Queen Latifah, Little Naz, Oscar Wilde, Sammy Davis Jr., Ellen Page, Rosie O’Donnell, Ian McKellan, Bea Arthur, Butterfly McQueen, Chaz Bono, Elton John, Remi Malik & Wanda Sykes among others. One of my favorite quotes was Tallulah Bankhead who said “Daddy warned me about men & alcohol, but he never warned me about women & cocaine.” Hadleigh who has published 26 books primarily on show business takes you on a journey back in time as he examines what it was like to be LGBTQ in Tinseltown’s heyday to modern day Hollywood. Boze examines both the obvious & hidden costs of being queer in the entertainment industry from an insider view looking out as well as from the outside looking in. This is a fascinating intimate exploration of our LGBTQ community’s survival in show business over the past century. I talked to Boze about his inspiration for creating “Inside the Hollywood Closet: A Book of Quotes” & his spin on our LGBTQ issues. “Inside the Hollywood Closet: A Book of Quotes” is published by Riverdale Avenue Books & is also available on Amazon, Barnes & Nobles Nook, iTunes & Kobo.
