I have no idea how to contact Larry Kramer and he'd probably hate it anyway, some feeble drip in the raging ocean of homophobia trying to be heard.  But after reading that heartbreaking editorial of his, I sit here in tears and wish I could tell him that I do not hate gay people, that I have spent my whole life fighting against homophobia to the point that I'm often viewed with suspicion.  What am I hiding, everyone eventually asks? Nothing.  How can anyone do anything else? Why am I so alone in this?  What the hell is wrong with everyone? There simply aren't enough angry het people Andrew, Larry is right. There are plenty of nice people who don't hate gay people, probably the majority, but not enough who find the hate intolerable and won't take another minute.
