Update: Bilerico contributor Andres Duque who also blogs at Blabbeando tells me that I video posted below was originally made by Keith Darce. Keith blogs at Scoop Zone.

I snagged this video clip of Larry Kramer from Knuckle Crack.

Larry is, of course, doing what he does best: exhorting LGBT people to take serious and smart action to achieve our civil rights.

Says Eric Leven, the bloggerlicious creator of Knuckle Crack:

He touches on points of community passivity, our ass-kissing approach to presidential candidates, the black-hole of Gay representation in modern education, and finally the similarities between Jewish and Gay oppression. This is dedicated to all my friends who roll their eyes at me and tell me I'm beating a dead horse.

Larry Kramer's anger has inspired me for years. I wish more of our leadership had his fire.
