I get why people are angry at the NYT dek on Larry Kramer's obit. It's a bad look for them & there wasn't enough context.
And that pattern & his inability to change it had particular impact on younger gay men, as @peterstaley says so well: "To this day, gay men carry the added burden of a society that sexually shames us. Larry played a part in this."
We owe this honesty to him and ourselves and the movement.
