The musical and graphic novel 'Fun Home' describe Bechdel's coming out, and her dad's closeted homosexuality. She says, "In many ways ... my professional career has been a reaction to my father's life." 'Fun Home' won five Tonys this year, including the award for best musical. Lyricst Lisa Kron and composer Jeanine Tesori join Bechdel in the conversation.
