On 6/17/20, Hunter hosted this online public program as part of the Hunter@Home series.
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, discussed the legacy of Larry Kramer, American playwright, author, public health advocate, and legendary LGBTQ activist. Plunge in to the extensive research currently in progress by Goldstein, who is writing a biography of Larry Kramer for Crown.
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.
The event concluded with a live, virtual, Q&A.
