In gay actor Matt Bomer’s Golden Globes acceptance speech, he thanked his husband and children, and stated “we love you, we remember you” to those lost to HIV/AIDS. The Normal Heart is based on Larry Kramer’s Tony Award winning play, telling the story of the onset of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s. Bomer plays Felix Turner in the film, a closeted journalist who is diagnosed with HIV. The actor lost nearly 20kgs for the role. In his Globes acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor, Bomer thanked Kramer for his anger and passion in writing a story which changed so many lives. “And to the generation that we’ve lost and the people we continue to lose to this disease, I just want to say – we love you, we remember you.” staff - 13th January 2015
