From Small Town to Supreme Court Gay Rights Activist with Victor Pisapia

From Small Town to Supreme Court Gay Rights Activist with Victor Pisapia

“We were living the 80s lifestyle that you read about a lot, but we were doing it. We were totally doing it.”
Born in the 1950s, Victor Pisapia is an international chef who’s owned numerous restaurants, including the iconic Back Porch Cafe in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. During the 1980s, he opened the first gay bar in Delaware and fought the Supreme Court for the rights to stay open, which we talk about during this interview.
He was named as one of the 50 most influential people in the last 50 years by Delaware Today, earned acclaim up and down the east coast with his mini-empire...and then, surprisingly, gave it all up to move to Sydney, Australia.
Victor is one of my favorite people, and his stories are legendary. I think you're going to love this one.
