While I agree with much of what Larry Kramer has to say, I often find his anger off-putting. He defended it, saying today, “Anger is one of the greatest emotions there is. Anger is as useful as love. Learn to use it.” I will agree that there is often much wisdom in anger. After all, the Greeks had a deity, Nemesis, who represented the quality of righteous indignation. And there is much that is righteous in Larry Kramer’s indignation. Even where I disagree with Larry Kramer, I find some common ground. For like us, he relishes in taking on the Gay establishment. He may not always be right, but he does always speak from the heart. And we Gay men would be wise to listen. Even if we don’t always take his advice.
