Thursday, July 25, 2013 - Award-winning playwright Larry Kramer has wed his longterm partner from his

hospital bed as he recovers from bowel surgery in New York.

The Normal Heart writer, 78, had initially planned to wed his boyfriend, David Webster, on Wednesday (24Jul13) on the terrace of their Manhattan apartment, but they had to scrap that idea last Friday (19Jul13) after Kramer fell ill.

He was admitted to New York University's Langone Medical Center, where he

underwent surgery for a bowel obstruction, and he has been recuperating from the operation in the intensive care unit (Icu).

However, he refused to postpone the nuptials over his health setback and instead invited friends and family to join him and Webster as they exchanged vows in the hospital.

Webster, 67, tells the New York Times, "I had been traveling when Larry went into the hospital 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."

Kramer, who has been at the forefront of AIDS activism for over three decades, has been dating Webster since the mid-1990s.
