NASHVILLE — Little Richard, the self-proclaimed “architect of rock ‘n’ roll” whose piercing wail, pounding piano and towering pompadour irrevocably altered popular music while introducing black R&B to white America, died Saturday after battling bone cancer. He was 87.
who turned into a raging homophobe (again), a few years ago.
Wow - I never knew that about Little Richard. Sounds like he definitely had some real conflict going on in his life....or he had a really bad gay experience so decided to come out against us all as a result. Yikes.
Jerry Stiller - dead at 92.
I have been binge-watching Seinfeld during this pandemic and just watched the Festivus episode last week. Too funny!
Larry Kramer, Noted Playwright & Trailblazing AIDS Activist, Dies at 84.
Kramer was best known for his play "The Normal Heart" which won a Best Play Revival TONY, and was subsequently filmed by Ryan Murphy, with the Revival cast, including Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, and Matt Bomer.
And for starting up the Gay Men's Health Services in New York, followed by ACT UP.
^ We met him, back in 1979, during a New York visit. He was at a table in Greenwich Village, offering info.about "what was happening medically" in the USA. "It" wasn't called AIDS, yet. We also met Cleve Jones (who eventually started the AIDS Quilt and was a good friend of Harvey Milk), during that trip, on the train down to DC, for a massive rally and march in general, for civil rights, etc. Nothing about AIDS, at that time, back then.
And the "International" rep was about 30 or so of us, all there.
