Larry Kramer Honored

On Thursday, April 15, Gay Men’s Health Crisis honored Larry Kramer, whose 1985 play “The Normal Heart,” helped spur attention to a disease called AIDS that was killing thousands of Americans, including many gay New Yorkers. The Public Theater is now restaging the play and Kramer’s work as an AIDS activist, writer and gay rights leader is being recognized once again. In the early 1980s, when the administration of Mayor Ed Koch ignored the AIDS crisis, Kramer and a handful of other gay activists formed GMHC, a fledging organization that continues to serve thousands of HIV-positive New Yorkers.
