An interview with his husband, David Webster, on the AIDS activist’s life and work

Welcome to The Signorile Report, where you’ll read hard-hitting political commentary and exposés; find interviews with newsmakers; hear me “engage” with right-wingers who call my radio program; and connect with like-minded, passionate people everywhere.

The pioneering, fiery and life-saving AIDS activist, playwright and author Larry Kramer died on May 27th, leaving us when he was still deeply involved in his work — including pushing Dr. Anthony Fauci on coronavirus and working on a play about the HIV and covid pandemics.

In his first interview since Larry’s death, his husband, the architect David Webster, spoke with me for a one-hour special which I was honored to air on my SiriusXM show. (And by the way, through July 6th you can listen free on your phone or online to the show — 3-6 ET, weekdays —our entire progressive political channel, Progress, and 100+ news, music and entertainment channels, right here, with no credit card or info. Just listen free).

Larry was a friend and mentor — we met in ACT UP back in 1988 — and an enormous inspiration for much of my work as a writer, columnist and author, particularly in those early years.

Here you can listen to the full interview with David Webster, on Larry’s life and work and their relationship. Let me know your thoughts.
