Dates of existence
Peter Gregory McGehee was born on October 6, 1955 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas to Frank and Julia Ann May McGehee. He attended elementary and high school in Little Rock, Arkansas, then attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas where he worked toward a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. In 1976, McGehee quit the program without completing the degree to move to San Francisco, California.
In San Francisco, McGehee wrote and acted in several plays. He also joined the satirical musical revue The Quinlan Sisters with Fiji Robinson and Wendy Coad and met Douglas Wilson. In 1980, Wilson immigrated to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to live with his partner Doug Wilson. McGehee and Wilson moved to Toronto, Ontario in 1982. McGehee was deported from Canada in 1984 and lived in New York City, New York until 1986.
Upon his return to Toronto in 1986, McGehee and Robinson co-wrote the songs for and performed together in The Fabulous Sirs. McGehee also developed a one-man show, later published as a novella "Beyond Happiness", which was edited by Wilson. McGehee's other publications included "Boys Like Us" (1991), a short story collection entitled The I.Q. Zoo (1991), and Sweetheart (published post-mortem, 1992).
McGehee died in 1991.
