David Webster, husband of Larry Kramer, today released Kramer’s final photo.

The photo was taken on May 20, according to activist Peter Staley who shared it (with Webster’s permission) during Kramer’s most recent hospitalization at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.

Kramer died from complications of pneumonia on Wednesday, May 28, after appearing to have recovered from a fall and broken leg injury he sustained while alone at home.

You may read his obituary here.

At the time of his death, Kramer had been working on a new play about “gay people having to live through three plagues,” he told John Leland of The New York Times, referring to H.I.V./AIDS and Covid-19 and the frailty of the human body.

Below is a photo from their bedside wedding ceremony at NYU Langone Medical Center on July 24, 2013.
