"For his OUTWORDS interview in March 2018, Bradley very generously traveled from Meally to a friend’s home in surprisingly queer Lexington, Kentucky. Bradley’s stories were epic with detail and emotion – and we felt convinced that if the walls of his friend’s house could talk, the stories would have been even wilder."
