Larry Kramer has never been a cheerleader, and while he has not always been right, he's rarely been wrong (his dour attitude toward PrEP was a stain on his track record).

Kramer Turns 83! Coverage HERE

Now, the great gay activist has written a short but not sweet essay for The New York Times on the topic of gay rights, and it's about as uplifting as Faggots ...

Happy 83rd, Larry Kramer! Comments (0)

IMG_2085Thank you to Mike Summers for the invite! (Image by Mike Summers)

The indomitable — to put it nicely — Larry Kramer had a great deal of influence IMG_2087 on a generation of gay men. For me, a person barely touched by the AIDS crisis on a one-on-one level, I was nonetheless in his thrall as I read the bitterly funny Faggots, which certainly informed Boy Culture.

So it was a thrill to share air with him again, this time on the occasion of a reading of his 1992 play The Destiny of Me by Eric Bogosian, Ellen Barkin, Gideon Glick, Josh Hamilton, Lee Pace (on his night off from Angels in America), Mark Ruffalo and Edie Falco at the Lucille Lortel.

Scintillating play! So well-observed and such a classic story of growing up gay.

Hard To Resist: New Feminist/Queer/Minority Performance Series In NYC vs. Trump Comments (0)

This sounds like a great idea for combatting the wave of anti-LGBTQ (for starters) policies and attitudes about to be unleashed by the — gulp — Trump Administration:

SANCTUARY, a home for feminist/queer/minority voices will take up residence at HERE beginning on Inauguration Day, Jan 20th as part of the Sublet Series. SANCTUARY is a pop-up venue for artists and activists to come together as a community and respond to current events, in particular the fears and anxieties felt in anticipation of the coming administration.

SANCTUARY opens on January 20th with an Inaugural Ball and continues with a full month of work by more than 50 different artists from a wide range of backgrounds. The schedule includes new theatre works; panel discussions with major arts leaders; and a variety of dance, concert, and other non-traditional works.

SANCTUARY will transform the mainstage at HERE into an immersive venue that draws on the history of activist/counter culture spaces. Audiences and artists alike will commiserate, process, grieve, organize, learn, and ultimately unite in celebration of the values we refuse to let America turn its back on.

Among the most interesting offerings:

January 26 at 8:30pm:

The Persecution and Assassination of Hillary Rodham Clinton as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the  MaxresdefaultDirection of the Marquis de Sade by S.P. Monahan

The lunatics are running the asylum. After two hundred years in confinement, the Marquis de Sade revolts against the doctors and attendants at the asylum of Charenton. Having successfully overthrown the established order of the world, de Sade stages a “victory performance” inspired by the rise and fall of Hillary Rodham Clinton for his captive audience.

A spoken word/dance fusion about converting the pain of our past into the resistance of our future. The piece seeks to provide relief for trauma, incite empathy, and center the marginalized within our own narratives of navigating a sociopolitical climate that was not built for us.

January 27- 29 at 8:30pm:

Next Fagg*t Nation by Scott Davis and Spencer Armstrong

Utilizes the groundbreaking novel Fagg*ts, a variety of gay literature, and investigative interviews with gay men, artists, educators, and influential drag queens as a catalyst for examining the current gay landscape. It holds a mirror up to the younger generation of gay men to bring a call to action; the fight to acquire knowledge of the past in order to make future change is not over.
