|Kramer underwent a liver transplant in December 2001. The Associated Press erroneously reported his death when in fact Kramer had been moved from intensive care.|
|On why he wrote "The Normal Heart", Kramer has been quoted as saying: "I wrote it to make people cry: AIDS is the saddest thing I'll ever have to know. I also wrote it to be a love story, in honor of a man I loved who died. I wanted people to see on a stage two men who loved each other. I wanted people to see them kiss. I wanted people to see that gay men in love and gay men suffering and gay men dying are just like everyone else."|
|"I didn't expect to become an activist. That's for certain. I was on my way to being a screenwriter-a comedy writer-perhaps someday a playwright. ...
"I didn't expect a plague.
"But it came, and a bunch of us, not a great many of us, enlisted in an army to fight it.
"That's how I became part of the gay movement. Which is very different from just being a gay man. And if I hadn't given much thought to what I might be expecting as a gay man, I certainly had no idea what it would be like being in the gay movement. I guess I'm still in the gay movement. I'm gay. I'm writing this. I write about only gay and AIDS stuff." --Kramer writing in The Advocate, March 1999.
|"Larry Kramer is one of America's most valuable troublemakers. I hope he never lowers his voice." --Susan Sontag|
|After his 1973 musical adaptation of Frank Capra's "Lost Horizon" became a critical and commercial failure, Kramer decided to focus his writing on issues relating to the LGBT community.|
|His provocatively titled 1978 novel, Faggots, became a best seller, despite being banned by a number of bookstores.|
|Kramer attempted suicide by swallowing a bottle of aspirin while attending Yale in the mid-1950s.|
|Kramer had already spent several years as one of the nation's foremost AIDS activists, prior to learning he had contracted HIV in the late 80s.|
|His 1993 play, "The Destiny of Me," was a Pulitzer Prize Finalist.|
|He worked in the story department at Columbia Pictures prior to earning an Oscar nod for penning 1969's "Women in Love."|
