John Paul Hudson Memorial Pork Butt

Pork can be a healthy food. In fact a 3.5 oz serving of pan-fried pork chop has about ½ the saturated fat and 40% less cholesterol than the same amount of pan-fried sirloin! This dish features a lower fat creamy sauce of lemon-mustard.

We dedicated this to another LGBT hero that has faded from our collective memory. Read a short article about him after the recipe. 


2 lbs center cut Pork Butt
2 Tbs flour
1 cup non-fat Half & half
1 onion chopped
1 5oz container of lemon flavored yogurt
8 oz softened low fat cream cheese
2 Tbs mustard

2 cups hot water
1/4 cup salt
¼ cup brown sugar

Mix up the brine. In a 9 x 13 baking dish. Place the pork in that and cover with plastic wrap. Put a saucer on top so that the pork is kept submerged. Sit in refrigerator for at least 2 hours or best overnight, turning the pieces once half way through the time.

Chop the onion. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. When ready to start cooking: line a large baking pan with foil and place a rack inside. Spray well. 

Dump out the brine. Rinse the pork well and pat dry with a paper towel. Make cuts in any layer of fat around the outside.
Bake for 50 minutes or until temperature reaches only 110.

Remove from oven.

Heat 2 tbs of oil in a large skillet. Add the chopped onion and stir for about 3 minutes.

Place the pork in the skillet to finish browning and raising the temperatures to 145 - 150 degrees.
Remove the pork and tent with foil.

Stir the tbs of flour into the yogurt until mixed and add to skillet. 

Next the cream cheese goes in with mustard. Stir in the Half & Half and let thicken.

Taste to season. Once the sauce is to your liking put the pork back in to warm, cover and fix your vegetables.

Serve the pork on a platter with sauce spooned over and some on the side.

What a creamy different taste for your Master!

John Paul Hudson 

As a young man: John Paul was a professional actor, singer and fashion model. Even in his later years of retirement in a rural town of Pennsylvania, he frequently was a director or producer of plays and concerts. He kept his apartment on 7th Avenue in midtown Manhattan where he continued his theatrical and artistic work as well as keep up his activist connections in what he called 'the Ultimate Island.'

John Paul worked closely with stars including Lily Tomlin and Ruth Buzzi for many years. recalls Kennedy. "He was known as a distinguished cabaret revue director, producer, lyricist, and performer.
As an activist: John Paul began as a director and librarian/archivist at the Mattachine Society in New York City.
John Paul had been an early member of the Gay Activists Alliance of New York, elected Delegate-at-Large early in the organization's history. During the early years of his decade-long of involvement with GAA, he held visible leadership positions.
    John Paul Hudson (moustache) in 1971 with other gay liberation pioneers: Kay Tobin Lahusen, Rev. Troy Perry and GAA stalwart, Morty Manford
As a writer:
Tall, handsome and debonair, he was always full of good humor. Of Austrian decent, the articles he contributed to the original GAY showed off his talents in impeccable English.

 In 1970 he posed nude in Gay
He started off to cover Manhattan night life in GAY, updating a weekly listing of the Big Apple's best bets for sociability. This project led to the publication of his first book in 1971, The Gay Insider, a gay male's guide to Manhattan.
Being of service to others was the focus of John Paul's outlook, perhaps the essential part of his happy demeanor.
The Gay Insider USA (which, like The Gay Insider, he wrote under his pen name: John Francis Hunter) was also a first, describing John Paul's gay journeys across the continent.
"I once thought I had a lot of answers and advice for Gays. I understand now, as I begin this, that I don't. Just a few biases, some illusions and a few facts, the bulk of them subjectively presented, and lots of questions. As I set out on my journey, I found I had only very little to start with. Really the acquired sophistication of a Gay who had traveled extensively over the land in years previous, mostly as a show business gypsy, and in the process learning something about how and where to make gay contact.”
These amusing books remain the most wonderfully penned and colorful descriptions of male-on-male sexual freedom ever printed.
John Paul's accounting of his sexual adventures-in the bars, at the baths, in the subways and parks-was accomplished with a joie de vivre that earned him praise by reviewers. The Gay Insider quickly became a best seller.
Peter Ogren wrote in GAY (May 24, 1971):
"The Gay Insider is more than just a guide to the bars. It's a grand tour of just about every type of place to meet others gays in Manhattan…But even above all that information, all that getting laid, The Gay Insider is a testament of gay freedom. At a time when the gay movement is moving in a truly liberated direction and gays are beginning to get some pride, wearing their homosexuality more like a medal than a scarlet letter, the vast numbers of gay people all over the country who are not members of any group have precious few proud books or documents.“Here is a book that shows in concrete terms how much of the time gay can be joyous”.
But by 1984, John Paul, was horrified and deeply saddened by the AIDS crisis and death of his longtime friend, Gerard. John Paul adopted a stance which he called "radical chastity". He remained celibate for the final eighteen years of his life.
Yet he continued to be a steadfast gay civil rights advocate, remaining close to those who'd earlier appreciated him for his joy and kindness.
In 2002, when a friend could not reach him by phone for two days, he asked a neighbor to check on him and she discovered his body.
Honesdale, Pennsylvania: John Paul Hudson, beloved Stonewall Era activist, trail-blazing author and a show business personality, died here late last week at the age of 73, apparently of natural causes.
