WYNN WAGNER now has an honest-to-gosh dad-gum mother-in-law named Rita. He and his husband — Rick Wagner — were married in Washington DC, after shacking up since the 1990s. Before the marriage, both their last names were Wagner. Nevertheless, Wynn announced that he was taking Rick’s last name.

Texas doesn’t recognize the civil marriage because it sanctions marriage apartheid at the expense of personal rights.

He and Rick were also married in the Old Catholic Church. Texas doesn’t recognize their church marriage because its politicians cannot not accept religious liberty and other pesky rights itemized in the America’s constitution.

In 2012, AEGiS awarded him their Health, Human Rights and Humanitarian Award marking a lifetime of humanitarian work.

Dr. Wag­ner received a Th.D from St. Wol­bodo Sem­i­nary and else­where a Mas­ters of Lib­eral Arts and under­grad­u­ate degrees in Eng­lish and Phi­los­o­phy. “Ancient his­tory,” he said. “The earth has cooled sig­nif­i­cantly since all that.”

He is the son of Swedish nationals but was adopted by an unsuspecting and otherwise innocent family in Fort Worth — has written numerous gay and spiritual books, including

At last count, he showed fourteen books currently in print.

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 crazy-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 wrote an article called “HIV: Day One” for those who have just learned they have HIV. It is considered one of the most widely read pieces for HIV patients and has been translated into a dozen languages, including American Sign Language.

Before programming and writing, Wynn was a broadcaster in radio in Texas and New York. Before that, he was a pimply-faced kid who huffily ignored his adopted grandmother when she told him to pay attention to semicolons and adverbs because he might need them someday.

He was awarded a key to the city by the mayor of Corpus Christi, Texas. It was a key to the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, a town Wynn has never visited. “No respect, I tell you,” he says.

He sang as a boy soprano in the Texas Boys Choir and appeared on such television shows as Ed Sullivan and Perry Como. His singing took him to Carnegie Hall, to Europe, and to record dates like the last recording conducted by Igor Stravinsky.
