Hedwig co-writer moving to Lexington

Michael Trask has just been added to the UK English faculty, and he brings with him his long term partner, Stephen Trask, who co-wrote Hedwig and the Angry Inch, one of the most important works of gender studies media in the past decade.

I don't know what's the most bad-ass about this: UK English getting a marquee gender studies faculty member (instead of one leaving), Lexington getting a killer songwriter, or the UK homepage having the balls to post something about a faculty member and his "partner" in its headlines. No matter, hurray!
