CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Billboard Magazine reports:

Elton John has remembered his friend Larry Kramer, the late gay rights and AIDS activist, screenwriter, and author, as “a warrior” for his cause and a “giant of a man.”

Kramer, who penned the Tony Award-winning play The Normal Heart and earned an Oscar nomination for his screenplay to Women in Love, died Wednesday (May 27) after a battle with pneumonia. He was 84.

Away from the stage and screen, Kramer founded the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP) in 1987.
