Stu Maddux (born 1965) is American freelance writer, editor, and cinematographer. He is an award-winning movie producer and director of his own non-fiction independent films. He is best known for his work Gen Silent, a documentary about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender older people who hide their sexuality or gender change in order to survive in the long-term care system. He also wrote and produced the films Bob and Jack's 52-Year Adventure and Trip to Hell and Back. His work has been featured internationally on television including on Showtime, TLC, and the BBC.

Maddux is also the founder of Interrobang Productions which is the company that he uses to produce and distribute his independent films.

Early life and education

Maddux was born during the height of the Civil rights movement in Montgomery, Alabama, Alabama. His father worked for a large corporation and relocated the family frequently as his career advanced. Throughout his childhood, he lived in Seattle, Washington, Denver, Colorado, Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Kansas City, Missouri.

His family moved to Kansas City, Missouri where he first discovered his passion for film and television by organizing his high school friends into a production company that created public access programs. Maddux attended the University of Missouri where he earned a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism.

The Clowder Group

The Clowder Group is the production company founded and used by Maddux and his husband, Joseph Applebaum, to produce and distribute their independent films. The company was founded in 1996 and is headquartered in San Francisco, California.


Maddux is an outspoken activist for the LGBT aging and LGBT history. He has spoken at national conferences including the American Psychological Association, Out & Equal, Creating Change and the American Society on Aging. He has frequently advocated for residential communities and care facilities to form their own gay-straight alliances similar to those in high schools. In 2018, he and his husband began a campaign to remove the stigma of identifying as lonely.
