Today Larry Kramer, an American playwright, author, film producer, public health advocate, and LGBTI rights activist passed away age 84.
His rage at the dilatory and negligent handling of HIV/AIDS in the 1980's, most notably at the silence, inspired his revolutionary stance and an entire movement that brought crucial life saving change. LINK WIKIPEDIA HERE.
