Larry Kramer’s “The Normal Heart” wins Tony Award for best revival of a play and he makes moving speech

Post image for TONYS: The Normal Heart: Tony Winner Larry Kramer's Historic SpeechLast week marked the 30th anniversary of the first diagnosed cases of AIDS so it is an ideal time to look back at the early days of the epidemic.

Larry Kramer was there and he wrote a play about that frightening time called The Normal Heart which is currently on Broadway.

Last night his great work won for Best Revival of a Play and the playwright took the stage with the producers and had some memorable words for the gay community:

“To gay people everywhere, whom I love so dearly, The Normal Heart is our history. I could not have written it had not so many needlessly died. Learn from it and carry on the fight. Let them know that we are a very special people, an exceptional people, and that, our day will come.”
