Celebrities Pay Tribute To Larry Kramer

Sadly, I haven’t seen much about Larry Kramer in any mainstream news. Which isn’t all that shocking. If it’s not about the likes of Straight Will and his Grace exploiting gay content, they go blank. They don’t even want to know there was once a gay activist named Larry Kramer. It’s not on their radar.

But not everyone went blank, thankfully.

“We have lost a giant of a man who stood up for gay rights like a warrior,” said Sir Elton John. “His anger was needed at a time when gay men’s deaths to Aids were being ignored by the American government.”

Here’s a lot more. There are a few comments from Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Gay Couple Pardoned by President In Zambia

I remember posting about this last year. A gay couple in Zambia was given a 15 year prison sentence last year for having sex, US Ambassador Daniel Foote was horrified about this and when he spoke up about his concerns he was sent back to Washington. They didn’t want him around anymore.

And here’s the latest turn of events…

Zambia’s President Edgar Lungu has pardoned two men who were jailed last year for having sex with each other.

Here’s the link. And there’s a more in-depth piece, here. Unfortunately, you won’t read about this in any mainstream news. 


“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”

What readers said about “Altered Parts”
“Best Gay Novel In Years. This story will stay with you and you will feel you know every character and the beauty of their home in the mountains of North Carolina.”

Altered Parts

Altered Parts by [Field, Ryan]

While the book is easily readable, it also addresses emotions stereotypes and relationships. I would have preferred it be 3 times as long and tragically most guys don’t find happy endings as depicted.. but in a short book, it provides food for thought, clarity and insight.. far more and better expressed than 99% of gay fiction . I don’t think it could have been done better.
