Larry Kramer is one of those ancient, radical gay activists we’re all supposed to be so grateful to for having the courage to come out and make gay obnoxiousness socially acceptable. He’s also a big part of the reason gay activism is such a hotbed of nuttery. Anyway, he’s just written a book claiming that pretty much every major historical figure is gay. George Washington was gay, and not only was Abraham Lincoln gay, but John Wilkes Booth assassinated him as part of a lover’s spat. Sic Semper Sodomy!
Why is that not in the history books? Because all history books are written by straight people, and they don’t wanna either admit that, or they wouldn’t know how to recognize what we call ‘gaydar.’
Kramer says it took him 40 years to write his 800 page history book that spans from pre-historic america all the way to the 1950s.
‘It’s called a ‘novel,’ but that’s just to keep the lawyers away from me,’ Kramer said.
‘I believe everything in the book is true. Everything in there happened,’ said Kramer who has long wanted to write a book on gay history.
