Murphy’s scriptwriting career kicked off in the late 1990s when Steven Spielberg purchased his script for Why Can’t I Be Audrey Hepburn?
Since then, he’s brought us Nip/Tuck, Glee, Feud, American Horror Story, and The New Normal and the Broadway revival of The Boys In The Band.
Husband to photographer David Miller, and father of two sons, Murphy received the Award Of Inspiration from the Foundation Of AIDS Research for his contributions to TV and film, as well as his work in the fight against AIDS.
Critics may claim that he’s “selling off” gay culture to pay TV, but fans applaud his ability to bring compelling queer stories to the world.
