Mixner, once named by Newsweek as the most powerful gay man in America, gives an intimate, first-person account of LGBT history from the perspective of a man who has lived it; as an activist on the street, to being a trusted adviser to presidents and prime ministers.
"I hope this show will inspire people to discover more about the history and the contributions of the LGBTQ community especially during October, which is LGBTQ history month," said David Mixner. "LGBTQ youth must know that they have an incredible history that should fill them with pride, as well as courage, power and dignity."
"David is a storyteller of great insight and power, as well as a trailblazer for the kind of social justice focused education and advocacy that we expect of Point Scholars," said Judith Light, Emmy and Tony Award-winning actress and Point Foundation Honorary Board Member. "Oh Hell No!" is not to be missed by anyone who cares about where the LGBTQ and allied community is going."
