Lari Krejmer preminuo je krajem maja u 84. godini. U istoriju je upisan kao uspešan dramski pisac i žestoki gej aktivista koji je podigao svest sveta o AIDS-u i pokrenuo hiljade ljudi na proteste tokom prvih godina epidemije.

„Poznavao sam Lerija godinama, ali nikad nismo bili dovoljno bliski da se baš družimo. Viđali smo se na raznim događajima. Osnovao je Gay Men’s Health Crisis i Act Up, oni su bili demonstranti poput današnjih. Započinju frku, ali ništa ne uništavaju“, priseća se za portal Nova.rs Tri Sekvoja, jedan od učesnika legendarne Stounvolske pobune, koja je serijom spontanih nasilnih demonstracija protiv policijske racije 1969. godine pokrenula borbu za prava LGBT osoba. U toj borbi Krejmer je imao važno mesto.

Krejmer je bio uspešan dramski pisac, za scenario za film „Zaljubljene žene“ (1969) bio je nominovan za Oskara, a njegovo verovatno najmoćnije delo je „Normalno srce“ iz 1985. Priča je autobiografska – o počecima HIV-AIDS krize u Njujorku ranih osamdesetih u kojoj se Krejmer postavio kao jedan od najjačih glasova gej zajednice.

I sam je bio gej i HIV pozitivan, a od opake bolesti izgubio je tadašnjeg partnera. Izgubio je i mnogo prijatelja koji su umirali zapostavljeni, izolovani i u strašnim bolovima. Odlučio je da nešto preduzme povodom toga.

Postao je jedan od najglasnijih zagovornika istraživanja nove bolesti, boljeg pristupa lečenju i prava gej zajednice kao najteže pogođene AIDS-om. Bio je i među prvima koji su shvatili da će se ono što se smatralo retkim oblikom kancera među gej muškarcima širiti svetom kao sve druge seksualno prenosive bolesti i ubijati milione nezavisno od njihove seksualne orijentacije.

„Lari je dao jedan veliki doprinos u borbi protiv HIV-a, mada bih ja pre rekao u borbi za prava HIV pozitivnih ljudi. Borimo se protiv HIV-a, ali to je samo jedan segment našeg rada, mi se pre svega borimo za ljudska prava. Bez obzira na to koliko je država uređena, HIV pozitivni ljudi se svuda u svetu susreću sa stigmom i diskriminacijom“, smatra Đurica Stankov, aktivista i osnivač AS Centra za osnaživanje mladih osoba koje žive sa HIV-om i AIDS-om.

Krejmerova Gay Men’s Health Crisis bila je prva servisna organizacija za HIV pozitivne, ali je on isključen iz projekta zbog svog „agresivnog pristupa“. Onda je osnovao udruženje Act Up (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) s kojim je izašao na ulice da traži ubrzanje istraživanja lekova protiv AIDS-a i okončanje diskriminacije homoseksualaca i lezbejki.

“Don't lose that anger.” • Another act of civil disobedience ingrained into queer history is the response to discrimination and indifference for victims of the AIDS pandemic that killed an entire generation with the heterosexist society standing in silence — hence the slogan “Silence = Death.” This is the first Pride Month since Larry Kramer's death. Gay activist also angered by apathy within the same community, he founded the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP) to spread and amplify the conversation about the origin, spread and treatment of the disease. June 5 is also the anniversary of the death of Ronald Reagan, the American president who ignored what was happening, joking about the so-called “gay plague”. After all, who cared about the death of a bunch of fags? In 1992, ten years later, ACT UP protesters organized what is now referred to as Ashes Action, scattering the ashes of the victims in front of the White House as a sign of protest. Even today, despite the significant advances made by medicine and a greater understanding of HIV/AIDS, stigma and misinformation are still widespread. HIV and AIDS remain global health issues, affecting nearly 40 million people. People of colour are disproportionately affected by the disease due to barriers they face in accessing treatment. .

„Ako napišete smireno pismo i ne pošaljete ga na pravu adresu, ono će potonuti poput cigle u Hadson“, objasnio je svoj pristup u datim okolnostima. U svojoj borbi bio je direktan, upirao prstom i ukazivao na goruće probleme.

Kao neprijatelje je identifikovao elitu i političare, farmaceutske kompanije i medicinsku birokratiju za koje je mislio da ne reaguju dovoljno hitno na epidemiju AIDS-a, optužujući ih da postaju saučesnici u genocidu. Jednom je napisao otvoreno pismo u kojem je imunologa dr Entonija Faučija nazvao „ubicom“ i „nesposobnim idiotom“. Njegova spremnost da razljuti moćnike učinila ga je jednim od najefikasnijih aktivista svoje generacije. A on, on je bio spreman na sve da vrati dostojanstvo ljudima do kojih mu je bilo stalo.

„Naredio nam je da volimo sebe i jedni druge i da se borimo za svoje živote. Bio je heroj“, napisao je Den Sevidž, novinar i pisac. Upravo to je plamen koji svako na svetu treba da preuzme od Krejmera – koju god bitku vodio.
