Hunter@Home - Remembering Larry Kramer
With Bill Goldstein, Author and Founding editor of the books site of The New York Times on the Web, and host of Bill’s Books on WNBC. And Charles Kaiser, Acting Director of Hunter College’s LGBTQ Policy Center at Roosevelt House.
“The entire history of the LGBTQ movement is a story of the collaboration of culture and politics: how gay artists and gay activists worked in tandem to transform the world’s attitude toward what had been one of its most hated minorities for centuries. And no one combined their artistic and political talents more successfully to produce social progress than Kramer.” Charles Kaiser, NBCNews.com

As Kramer’s authorized biographer, he has spent hundreds of hours interviewing Kramer during the past two years and has worked in Kramer’s massive personal papers, as well as in the records of the Gay Men’s Health Crisis and ACT UP, the two organizations Kramer played a vital role in founding. He has also studied the personal archives of many of Kramer’s closest friends and opponents.
