Perry Brass born September 15, 1947, Savannah, Georgia is an American author, journalist, playwright[1] and essayist.

He was an active member of the Gay Liberation Front, the first radical gay organization to be formed after the Stonewall Rebellion in New York in June 1969. He co-edited Come Out!, the influential newspaper published by the Gay Liberation Front; the last three issues of the newspaper were published by the newspaper's collective from his apartment in Hell's Kitchen in New York.[2] In 1971, with two friends he co-founded the Gay Men's Health Project Clinic, the first clinic for gay men on the East Coast. The clinic openly advocated for gay men to use condoms, almost a decade before the advent of AIDS.[3]

He writes for The Huffington Post.[4] Perry Brass is member of the PEN American Center.[5] The New York City Public Library has a Manuscripts section with Perry Brass holdings.[6] In a BlogTalk Radio interview he gives background information about his book King of Angels.[7]

He has been a finalist several times for Lambda Literary Awards.[8] In 2012 King of Angels was a finalist for the Ferro-Grumley Award for LGBT Fiction from New York's Ferro-Grumley Foundation.[9]

In March 2016, Brass was banned from Facebook.[10]
