Perry Brass (born September 15, 1947) is an American author, journalist, playwright[1] and essayist.[2]

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 [3]; the last three issues of the newspaper were published by the newspaper's collective from his apartment in Hell's Kitchen in New York.[4][5] 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.[6][7]

He writes for The Huffington Post.[8] Perry Brass is member of the PEN American Center.[9] The New York City Public Library has a Manuscripts section with Perry Brass holdings.[10] In a BlogTalk Radio interview he gives background information about his book King of Angels.[11]

He has been a finalist several times for Lambda Literary Awards.[12] In 2012 King of Angels was a finalist for the Ferro-Grumley Award for LGBT Fiction from New York's Ferro-Grumley Foundation.[13]

In March 2016, Brass was banned from Facebook.[14]
