Highland Guy said: "On June 8 (perhaps other dates, as well), HBO will show the 2015 documentaryLarry Kramer in Love and Anger."

Thanks. I also just discovered it’s on HBO Go now.

Mr. Kramer, so few like him...a brave, brave man.

Let's not forget this as well:

He came into a restaurant I was working in, gosh it must have been over 15 years ago and he was very frail. I recognized him and I remember my impulse was to be extra warm towards him because I admired what he had accomplished. They should name a street in NYC after him.

Here's a nice remembrance of Larry by writer Adam Green, son of Adolf Green and Phyllis Newman.

Adam Green in Vogue: A Righteous Fury and a Capacious Heart: Remembering Larry Kramer

Larry would not want his memory to be sugar-coated. He could spit venom and castigate friends and foes alike with the fire and brimstone of an Old Testament prophet. But then he would turn around and be pure love. I was lucky to be the recipient of both--the love more than the venom, thankfully.

He considered those of us who attended Act-Up meetings and demonstrations his "children," and we loved him like a parent, even though sometimes his seemingly disproportionate fury and rage would enrage us in return.

This clip, from the excellent documentary about Act-Up called "How to Survive a Plague," shows Larry castigating his "children" at a difficult moment when the organization he created was being split into two.
