David Mixner and Nigel Barker Get Down to Business

Here's a look inside the first meeting between David Mixner and the photographer Nigel Barker and his wife, Cristen, over the script about the big-screen adaptation of the activist's life story. The working title is "The Unacceptable," and the meeting took place in -- where else? -- Mixner's Corner at The Glass House Tavern in Midtown Manhattan.

In February, Barker told Out magazine:
I’m working on new film about a man named David Mixner. He’s a human rights activist and a gay rights activist and he is one of the most prolific men in the gay community. He’s become a friend of mine through Alan Cumming. We’re creating his life into a film and it’s really going to tell the story of the gay community and HIV through the '80s and up until now. One of his protégés is Jeremy Bernard who is the social secretary of the White House on the Obama administration. I’ve directed four films, but this will be the first feature film.
