The Sex Life of Larry Kramer

The Sex Life of Larry Kramer


Seventy-four-year-old writer and activist Larry Kramer gave South Florida Gay News columnist Tony Adams an "interview out of me that no one else has ever had" when the two connected to talk about Kramer's sex life.

Kramer, who also talks a bit about Obama and ACT UP in the interview, tells Adams that he has joined two hook-up sites "almost as research for my book," a 4,000-page history of the strife of gays to be published in two volumes as The American People.

"I've been thinking a lot about older gay men because I'm almost 75. I've suddenly started being horny again! My partner and I have known each other since the late 1960s. This is our second time together. Seventeen years this time. He gave me permission to explore, but what does a 75-year-old do when he wants to crawl in bed with a hot young body? I think this is the biggest unwritten thing and there must be an awful lot of older men like me who are hungry for another sexual chapter before they die. I don't think we talk about it enough."

Kramer talks frankly in the interview about his issues with body image -- his body is distended and scarred by disease and surgery -- and his image among activists that, in the days of ACT UP, he "demanded that gay men stop fucking altogether."
