William David Webster & Larry Kramer
The two celebrated their wedding on a Wednesday, July 26th, 2013 as per the New York Times. Eve M. Preminger, a retired Surrogate Court judge in New York, officiated at NYU Langone Medical Center, where Kramer was recovering from surgery.
In a phone interview, Webster told the Times that the date had been set before the health problem came up. “I had been traveling when Larry went into the hospital,” Mr. Webster said, “and when I was back and he was able to talk, he told me he had invited 20 people to the I.C.U. for the wedding. So it turned into a little party at his bedside.”
The two had been love partners for a long time.
At the time of their wedding, Webster worked as the principal designer and the owner of an architectural design firm in New York that bears his name. He graduated from Columbia.

Kramer referred to the AIDS crisis as a holocaust throughout his life and wrote the book, Reports from the Holocaust: The Making of an AIDS Activist, in 1989.
