Kramer is a noted publicist and playwright and a graduate of Yale University. His novel Faggots has proved to be one of the best selling gay novels of all time. His play about the early days of the AIDS epidemic, The Normal Heart, holds the record for being the longest-running play at Joseph Papp's Public Theater in New York and so far has had some 600 productions worldwide. His current work includes The Destiny of Me, currently running off Broadway.
