Today’s Homo of the day.
Perhaps you know him from his little known works, The Glass Menagerie, and A Streetcar Named Desire.” By the time he was 50 he’d won a “Tony Award for best play for The Rose Tattoo (1951) and the Pulitzer for A Streetcar Named Desire (1948) and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1955). In 1980 he was honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Jimmy Carter and is today acknowledged as one of the most accomplished playwrights in the history of English speaking theater.”
He lived most of his life out of the closet. He joined a gay social group and had several significant relationships in his life. Unfortunately his use of alcohol and drugs played a big part in those relationships not lasting. It eventually led to his death in 1983.
Here are a couple of clips from his work. The second is especially worth watching.
